Format: VHS Tape
This rich, entertaining documentary is largely a film version of Gertrude Stein's gossip-filled autobiography published in 1932, which she cleverly mistitled The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. It combines passages from her writings with vintage photographs, amateur film clips, her famous art collection, her lyrics set to music, and brief excerpts from delightfully candid conversations with people who knew her in Paris, among them Virgil Thomson, Genet, Maurice Grosser, Jacques Lipschitz, Daneil-Henri Kahnweiler and Bennett Cerf. Dozens of other key players are also remembered: William James, Ambroise Vollard, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Juan Gris, Carl Van Vechten, Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Edith Sitwell, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Thornton Wilder and others. So it's far more than simply the story of Stein and her life with Toklas. There is never a dull moment in this fast-paced, jam-packed guided tour of the emergence of Modern Art, both literary and artistic. (Review copyright © 1999 by Roy R. Behrens from Ballast Quarterly Review, Vol 15 No 1, Autumn)
