Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R (set of five) without case or artwork. Note: Unlike other versions of this documentary, this set was transferred from laser disc, resulting in much clearer image and sound compared to the standard VHS transfers available. Because the series is tied up in rights issues that may never be resolved, this represents the best possible quality in which to enjoy it. Image is sharp and distortion-free, unlike VHS copies. Screens available on request.

This 13-episode series comes on five DVD's. Hollywood (also known as Hollywood: A Celebration of the American Silent Film) is a 1980 documentary series produced by Thames Television which explored the establishment and development of the Hollywood studios and its impact on 1920s culture. The series consists of thirteen one hour episodes, with each episode dealing with a specific aspect of Hollywood history. The actor James Mason, an enthusiast of the period, supplied the narration; a lilting score was contributed by Carl Davis. Episodes: (1) The Pioneers; (2) In the Beginning; (3) Single Beds and Double Standards; (4) Hollywood Goes To War; (5) Hazard of the Game; (6) Swanson and Valentino; (7) The Autocrats; (8) Comedy - A Serious Business; (9) Out West; (10) The Man With the Megaphone; (11) Trick of the Light; (12) Star Treatment; (13) End of an Era.

Reviewer: Hugh Finegan from Euclid, OH United States  
I have been searching for a DVD copy of Hollywood for several years and I am so glad to find this! A good transfer of an excellent documentary. The interviews alone are priceless. Well worth it.

Reviewer: Rick from San Diego, CA United States  
I've been looking for Brownlow's Hollywood for years and never expected to find it.

Given its rarity and the bad reputation of VHS copies, I was amazed that you found a LaserDisk copy to duplicate. Just amazing! Thanks for caring.

Reviewer: Louis Wagner from Los Altos, CA United States  
Initial reaction having only had time to watch a
part of the first disc is....I'm delighted.
I'm eager to review Movie Detective's other offerings.
