Product Description

Renowned historian Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill's official biographer, hosts the definitive chronicle of the life of Britain's legendary leader, THE COMPLETE CHURCHILL. In four remarkable volumes, the triumphs and setbacks, bravery and brilliance of Churchill's life are revisited. An extraordinary fusion of candid interviews, newsreel footage, and new findings released here for the very first time unveil the intimate details and defining moments of the greatest statesmen of the 20th century. See rare footage of a slender, young Churchill as he first captures Britain's attention, and see why he was forced out of public office. Yet his words would remain in the hearts of his countrymen, and as the nation faced its darkest hour, Churchill was chosen to lead the charge against the Nazis. Trace the incredible story of his wartime exploits, and discover how the great statesmen spent his days after the war. "

Written and presented by Martin Gilbert, Sir Winston Churchill's official biographer and the author of Churchill: A Life, The Complete Churchill is a treasury of rare newsreel clips and interviews with Churchill's family, staff, and political contemporaries, both the supporters and the detractors. The first volume surveys Churchill's early life through his schooling, the Boer Wars, the First World War, and his lecture tour in America. Volumes 2 through 4 trace the bold and eloquent British statesman's determined leadership as he guides Britain through one of her most vulnerable periods, the Second World War. This series provides enough interviews and never-before-seen footage to interest the most avid Churchill enthusiast while presenting history buffs and neophytes with a balanced portrait of this pivotal historical figure's public and private personas. --Tara Chace

This is no superficial coverage of Churchill. We had seen part of the series on A&E, and got more of it. Martin Gilbert was the only person who could have done this complete a job in a video. Ken Burns could have done it, maybe. No one else would come close.
I gave this as a gift to my brother, who is a Churchillphile. (He dips into Churchill's "History of the English Speaking Peoples" for relaxation.) The words he used to thank me were "Awe-inspiring, excellent, contained stuff I didn't know existed, thank you so very much!"
If it can pass muster with him, and keep my husband (*not* a Churchillphile) interested enough to prefer it to a new episode of Deep Space Nine, I would say that this is the Churchill series for everyone.

Whoever produced this thing decided to keep it simple, TOO SIMPLE! Too often it's just a girl removing her clothes and then posing, and I'm sorry but that gets BORING after a while! The one scene where the two freshmen engage in a sexy girl-girl scene was nice, but just a bit too tame in my opinion. Still, it was the best part of the video, and certainly the most creative & erotic part! At least Playboy video is finally heading in the right direction.

Okay here is the deal. This is a very good tape. Believe ME. But there are a few things that did bother me. In the first scenario and the last one with Bethany Lorraine there were some guys in it that were flashing their buttocks. Why do us guys buy these, for the women, right. Well STOP PUTTING MEN IN THESE. Bethany Lorraine's could have been so much better if that guy wasnt in it. But overall it is a good video. The 50s diner is great. The "Panty Raid" is my fav. And the 2 new roomates that move in, MY GOD that is good. Those are the best 3, so that is all I got to say about that!

This is probably the most sensual Playboy video I have ever seen. The women are spectacular and the close ups are a first for Playboy. It definitely gets two thumbs up! Highly recommended!

Hot women, great close ups which show everything (unusual for most Playboy movies), and even a couple of sexy lesbian scenes. Definitely one of the top Playboy movies I've seen.

Wow! That was Corny! The women are beautiful, but you will have to ignore the two men's bare buns in the first skit. If you don't mind two women interacting, you should like this video. Tiffany Lorraine's skit is what made this video worth the buy.

what a waste of money. when you buy a video like this, you expect great looking women. Freshman Class has average women. the girls on this tape look like Playboy walked into random gas stations and picked out the best looking women working there, with the exception of the beautiful cover girl, who gives a great strip scene in this video. this movie contains a shower scene(with some g/g action), 3 girls in a science lab acting like they know what they're doing, a film strip of 3 girls jumping around naked(yippee!), some girl stripping for a guy hiding in her closet, a silly silly lesbian scene, and more crap like that. I personally found Wet and Wild 9 to be the best of the Playboy vids I've seen. but who knows Freshman Class might be your style, but I would suggest renting it before you buy it.
