Moguls and Movie Stars

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne talks about TCM’s “Moguls and Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood:” a 7-part documentary series that talks about the history of Hollywood from 1890 to 1970, and tells the story of Hollywood’s power shift from the men who ran the studios to the stars who made the studios rich.

Thanks Leonard for having Robert Osborne on your show today! I'm a TCM fan and am really enjoying the series on movie moguls, but then, all of the original series on TCM are wonderful. I must say though that I'm disappointed that for the third year in a row, the adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" starring Alastair Sim is not being shown on Turner - please think about adding it to the schedule!

This series looks great and I hope they rerun those first episodes soon!

But I'm disappointed that the series stops at 1969 because the 1970s--sandwiched in between the end of the studio system and the beginning of the blockbuster era--were truly a golden age for American movies.

Thank you Mr. Osborne for the great work you do on TCM, I love the classics.
I wish TCM would show more of those forgotten movies like you did a few weeks age, “Something Wild”1963
I had never seen that movie and was totally gripping. Please show more of those forgot ones.

Although not a film buff, I've always been interested in the industry and the players that created and have shaped it over the years. Thanks so much TCM for doing this series!
