  • El Biffo's rating of the film Hollywood My Home Town

    Bogus home movies. Everything in this collection seems to be staged/posed for publicity. The narration ("Gary Cooper, what a great guy") is exceptionally annoying. Every single person in this film is white and they are all wonderful people, according to the narrator, Ken Murray, who supposedly made all these "home movies" but at the end admits that he didn't actually make them all.
