Wow!!! I didn't know these people were still alive
28 October 2001 | by negrocitySee all my reviews

I must say, the secret to longevity is now known... become a vaudeville star... No disrespect intended, this was an amazing and thorough look at the history of vaudeville, both on the stage and on the screen, both black and white (and more), what a show! The creators of this program were brilliant, with the perfect balance of rarely/never been seen footage and current interviews of some of the original stars of vaudeville. A must see for all fans of the genre!!!!
