    I like the approach of the movie and it had a good message within it. I know I have missed a lot of the classics and it highlighted several, including scenes within them. While you can't cover everything in an hour I thought it got the general gist especially compared to today's movies. They provided a good point of view from the transition of world war to the hippie generation. The guy before me commented that it was skewed and biased, but sounds as if he has his own spin cycle and agenda anyhow. Its a documentary about '50's movies for Pete's sake, what better sound bytes to get than the people involved in the movies and the ones who dated Marlon Brando, etc. Sheesh! Good stuff.

    I enjoyed this documentary, but I found it very biased. First of all, the interviewees are people who are essentially commenting on THEIR generation of cinema, and certainly not very objectively. It was rather misleading to say that Rebel without a Cause was the first film to show the teens' point of view. Nonsense. Frank Borzage showed it back in the early 30s with the film No Greater Glory about a group of neighborhood kids who get in trouble and come of age. The story was hardly new in the 50s. Also, there had been at least a decade of Bowery Boys films and before them, the Dead End Kids in the late 30s. What WAS new in 1955 was the use of Cinemascope and how director Nicholas Ray photographed the adolescents. Of course, other films and genre were included, but even science fiction had been in some of the earliest motion pictures. What was unique about the 50s was the red scare and how films focused on a need to maintain societal order...but again, communism was a problem in the late 30s and American society was dealing with the generation gap back in the days of Andy Hardy. We need to stop thinking the 1950s were revolutionary...it was a unique time, yes, but these themes and patterns appeared before the 50s and have continued long afterward.
