This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

This 5 hour look at the 50's and it's world of horror and sci-fi films it top notch all the way. There are many clips, of course including scenes from THE THING, DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, BEGINNING OF THE END, THE CYCLOPS and hundreds more.

What I like best is all of the interviews with people such as BOB BURNS, PHYLLIS COATES, LISA DAVIS, WILLIAM SCHALLERT, KATHLEEN HUGHES and many, many more.

To me the 50's was the best decade America ever had and nothing beat the entertainment based on our fear of nuclear war. From that fear spwaned a whole new way for cinema to go, and I fell in love with it right away.

If you're a fan of 50's horror and sci-fi I cannot see why you wouldn't enjoy this fantastic look at the golden era of horror films and America in general.

This was/is also available as a three disc set, but I don't know where you could purchase it as I write this, but it can be streamed on Amazon which is where I discovered it.

A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED piece of work that I know you'll enjoy.
