"Hollywood" was a fabulous 13-part series about American silent films, from their evolution to the dawn of sound. It was produced by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill in 1980 for Thames Television in England. A few years later it aired on many PBS stations in the U.S. It's fascinating, because much of the story is told through vintage film clips and interviews with the actors, actresses, directors, crew members, etc. who were actually there. I can't tell you how many times I've watched it. It never gets old.
It was released on VHS (and on laserdisc, I think), but never on DVD. I got my hands on the VHS set and I'm never letting go. Wish they would do a DVD/Blu-ray release.
