Product Details

Frank Capra's American Dream is a must for all those who have enjoyed Capra's contribution to cinematic art - and still do. The documentary gives a full overview of Capra's life and detailed discussions of all of his major films, illustrated with carefully selected excerpts from them. The discussions are balanced, and deal with the strengths and weaknesses of individual films. I was struck by the darker themes implicit in Capra's mature work. Interviews with his children and with various artists involved in his projects provide fascinating insights into the histories of Capra's films. Among the highlights are interviews with Jane Wyatt (Sondra in "Lost Horizon," and Fay Wray (of "King Kong" fame), who was the wife of Robert Riskin, Capra's main scriptwriter for many years.
