  1. Pure joy to watch -- and an invaluable documentary record of a bygone era.
  2. 88
    It's one for the time capsule.
  3. This free-flowing film certainly hits the high points as it flips around its talking-head celebrity sound bites at warp speed.
  4. 75
    It's the videotaped equivalent of a primary research data dump. But to quote Bette Davis by way of Edward Albee: What a dump.
  5. The film will eventually be a must-own video item for theater buffs.
  6. If you love the theater, you've got to see the film.
  7. The movie is mostly a megadose of good-old-days nostalgia.
