Documentary - Thanks for the Memories
17 August 2019 | by beckyhethSee all my reviews

So many great movies, so little time! I rated this 8 stars. Why? Because it brought back floods of good memories. (And a few not-so-good). And, it gave me interest in movies that I did not see when released, and now will be looking for. The series is not entertainment. It is information. I will be watching every episode if they rerun them. The times they were on, CNN needed to preempt with actual news. Please, CNN: Rebroadcast.
