The Brothers Warner DVD Review

The Brothers Warner DVD Review

Synopsis: Of the major studios, one was family. Harry, Albert, Sam, Jack " the Warner brothers " turned a storefront that used a sheet for a screen into a dream factory rooted in the credo of educate, entertain and enlighten. In this fascinating documentary, filmmaker (and Harry's granddaughter) Cass Warner Sperling tells a story of sibling rivalry, social conscience and the silver screen. It's a story of pioneering (risking all for Talkies) and politics (standing alone in Hollywood against the Nazis), of reels (The Public Enemy, Casablanca and more) and rifts (including a shocking family betrayal). It's a story told from the inside (via rare family archives) by those who lived it (among them such stars as Dennis Hopper, Debbie Reynolds, Tab Hunter and more) and from the outside by film historians. The people, the pictures, the tales untold on camera until now! The Brothers Warner educates, enlightens, entertains, reveals.

Review: Not too long ago a great documentary about the Warner Brothers Studios was released called "You Must Remember This".  Its easy, at first glance, to see "The Brothers Warner" as a redundant DVD, but nothing could be further from the truth! 

The Brothers Warner is an in-depth look at the men behind the legend.  This documentary examines the actual Warner Brothers..their personal lives..victories and tragedies.   It delves into their many entertainment ventures prior to their now legendary movie studio.  The documentary is honest and up front about the various issues that each brother had in their lives and with each other, this is no puff piece.

If you love documentaries as much as we do, you'll be into this one.  Its a cool look back and historical figures that do have cultural significance, but you certainly don't hear about every day!  This is a rare peek inside a world that is long forgotten.  We highly recommend it.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
