This movie is a bit too talky, but otherwise is a great way to catch up on your education about
Hollywood and how it developed. From the early days to today's blockbusters, the movie captures the issues and personalities that drove Hollywood early and often. Best parts are the many clips from movies about, of course, Hollywood.
Interesting movie, thought provoking as always by Capra, but a pretty slow slog at the same time.
More importantly, movie's continuity is disrupted by missing audio and video that crops up throughout the movie. Also, ending is oddly truncated, suggesting we missed a whole lot of movie after Ronald Colman eft Shanghai, then decided to return. Overall, great period piece and actors in their prime. Not the best Capra, but not bad at all.
