You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story

Show Summary

You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story is an ambitious, five-hour installment of the critically acclaimed PBS series American Masters. With unprecedented scope, it documents the history of the Warner Brothers studio from its humble founding in 1923, with Rin Tin Tin as its biggest star, to the media empire it is today. Directed by film critic Richard Schickel, and narrated by Clint Eastwood, it follows the fabled studio through the great Depression of the 1930s and into the 1940s. Films like The Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have Not and Casablanca reflected that era's tough economic times as well as the American can-do spirit. The 1950s saw the growing threat of television and the studio responded with new technologies like the short-lived 3-D craze of the era and more lasting advances like CinemaScope and Eastman Color. In the 1960s, the studio adapted to the changing cultural values of the nation with films like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and the controversial Bonnie and Clyde. New directors like Martin Scorsese led the charge in the 1970s with newfound freedom and artistic control. In the following decades blockbusters reigned at the box office with superhero sagas like Batman, the special effects wizardry of the Matrix and fantasy films like the Harry Potter series. You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story is a groundbreaking and unprecedented film.moreless
