MGM: WHEN THE LION ROARS
- bill kovach
If ever you become one of many movie buffs out there, this documentary is above all that was ever produced. Excellent narration along with so many tidbits of information, behind the scenes and how fascinating MGM was. recommended for all film students. excellent background of the movie industry. just sit back, let your imagination flow and enjoy the show.
The very best documentary I've ever seen
The documentary is just outstanding. I have seen it about a dozen times on HS tape. Now I want to buy it one DVD do have it available?
Fantastic documentary should be on DVD!!!!
This is a must see for all movie buffs. The three-part documentary is well told and gives an amazing overview of its great successes and unfortunate collapse of this titan of a movie studio. This should be released on DVD, as it gives a well balanced view of what made this studio great and its weaknesses, but also is a window for anyone not familiar with the some of the stars and people that made these films classics they are! Host Patrick Stewart does a great job of carrying the plot and emphasizing the joys and sorrows during the years of MGM.
A Wonderful Documentary
It's been several years since I've seen this documentary. I use to own the 3-part video but unfortunately, it got away from me. I hope to be able to purchase the DVD soon.
This needs to be on DVD!!!
I keep hearing rumors that this documentary will be released on DVD, but nothing ever seems to happen. Please release this on DVD as soon as possible. This is one of the best film documentaries I have ever seen. I have a lot of film buff friends and I would love to give this as a birthday, Christmas, or even an anyday of the week gift! Please remember all us classic film fans that this channel and website are supposed to be about.
PLEASE RELEASE ON DVD
- Warren Besancon
It's been years since I saw this documentary, and I've been waiting for TPTB to release this on DVD. I'm not really a fan of the classics, but I was completely captivated by this documentary. Come on, TCM, release this excellent piece of work on DVD soon. I'm the 386th person to vote for this, but I can almost guarantee you there are a lot more people who would love to own a copy; they just may not be aware of the chance to vote for it to become a reality.
