This is the singularly most boring, uninspired, cheaply produced mess I have ever seen. It is nothing but badly edited clips from poor quality trailers with an insipid narration. Do not waste your time and money.

This DVD set on the Ladies, as well as the companion set on Leading Men, are done exactly the same, on the cheap. Using public domain footage from movie trailers, old movies and tv shows and some ameatur footage taken of the more recent stars, the quality of this set is poor. This is basically a DVD release of a VHS series of the 1990s called "Hollywood Remembers," and using the exact same footage. Photos, when used in this documentary, are filmed out of books or magazines...very poor quality all around. DO NOT expect A&E type Bios here.

If you're looking to familiarize yourself with Hollywood's leading ladies of the past, this box set will give you a good overview. What's good about this set is that it's so comprehensive. Instead of searching for individual bios on each one, it's conveniently all in one box. The actresses profiled here are people that aren't spoken about these days, but that's only because of commerce. Today's reality TV stars and have nothing on these legends. The downside would be price. Beacuse its production value is not as high as you'd expect, I don't know if it's worth full retail price -- try to pick it up used at a lower price and it might be worth it. I enjoyed them.
