    FNC '12 Basically a puff piece celebrating casting director extraorinaire Marion Doughery who past away last year. Never a contrary work is spoken exempting the head of the DGA who comes off more than a little pompous here. Full of wonderful clips and rare footage and photographs. Fun for the film buff but lacks depth. A little more history and a little less praising would have gone a long way.
