Editorial Reviews

Some of them looked a little nervous in their first movie role, like six-year old Liz Taylor as she sang with Alpha of ""Little Rascals"" fame; others came off as pros like Kirk Douglas in his film debut playing opposite Barbara Stanwyck. See them as beginners, including young Elvis Presley, John Travolta, Sophia Loren, Al Pacino, Cary Grant and a bevy of wanna-be movie stars who are in this amazing documentary that relates how Hollywood's greatest icons broke into filmdom, complete with clips of their first movie roles. With no experience and sometimes armed with nothing more than sheer nerve, they stood before the camera for the very first time and you can see them here in this documentary. Witness Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate; Marilyn Monroe as she portrayed a stripper in her film debut; Goldie Hawn, Woody Allen, Jack Nickolson and Kim Novak are among the dozens of actors and actresses whose first movie appearances are the subject of this entertaining documentary.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 21, 2012
This hour-long documentary was produced by author Les Krantz in 2001 as a "visual companion" to his book of the same name. It features clips from the "first film appearances" of about 38 major stars going back to Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford in the 1920s to John Travolta and Sandra Bullock in the 1970s and 80s. While most clips are from the films themselves (properly licensed from studios like Universal), there are some scenes taken from "trailers". All run about a minute in length. Many are common scenes (Dustin Hoffman in "The Graduate") but a few are more obscure (Bogart, Burt Reynolds, Monroe). All the clips have good resolution. There were a few titles new to me that I might want to seek out to see the full performances.

There is a narration, which is fairly interesting but sounds a lot like the narration in museum exhibits.

While nearly all the stars shown can be considered movie "icons". I question the reason to include the first appearance of actress Helen Hunt (who really only had one major film ("As Good As It Gets). But that's a quibble.

It's budget priced and should still be worth a watch by movie fans.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
