Description: The documentary tracks the diva's hard progress as she emerges from the tough, testosterone-fuelled globe of the large bands of the 30s and 40s, to fill nightclubs and saloons across the US in the 50s and early 60s as a force in her own right. Looking at the lives and careers of six individual singers (Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Annie Ross), the movie not only talks to those who knew and worked with these queens of jazz, but also to contemporary singers who sit on the shoulders of these trailblazing talents without having to endure the pain and hardship it took for them to create their highly individual voices heard above the prejudice of mid-century America.

The Solitary Life of Cranes #

Released 1/1/1980

Description: Part town symphony, part visual poem, the movie explores the invisible life of a city, seen through the eyes of crane drivers working high above its streets. Within the loose structure of a day, starting with the drivers climbing up at dawn and ending with them coming down after a nightshift, the movie observes the town as it awakens with a bustle of activity, through the lull of midday and the manic rush in the evening, until it calms down again deep into the night. Throughout the film, the drivers share their thoughts and reflections on London and life in general. What emerges is a lyrical meditation about how our existence is shaped through the environment we inhabit, both for the drivers high up in the sky and the folks on the ground they are watching.

Meet McGonegal Reviews:

This inspirational short movie developed by the U.S. Units helped a lot of disabled veterans in dealing with their actual case without their members, and among them there was Harold Russell, greatest known for his Oscar winning role in "The Greatest Years of Our Lives". Russell was a military who lost both hands during a training exercise and soon on watched this film, which presents a WWI veteran who also lost his hands and how he deals with everyday routine while using metal hooks. Russell's short movie "Diary of a Sergeant" uses clips from this short movie to present how significant the experience of seeing it made his life more positive and helpful. "Meet McGonegal" presents Charles McGonegal, a fight veteran dealing with common case in each person's life such as dressing himself up, eating and drinking but from a limited perspective since the boy instead of hands uses of hooks to perform those actions. Through a long rehabilitation process he managed to master his test with the hooks, performing each possible action and living a normal life. So, with this movie you receive a sense of how life and science/engineering development was back then. Today, disabled veterans and others have access to more advanced prosthetics that look related to hands, arms and legs. But despite the usual 'commercial type of thing' the movie had to test to present, with some distortions on the way, I praise its effort to instate and bring quality and positive effort in the lives of many folks out there during the period and again including Mr. Russell, who went to deliver one of the best movie performances of all time in William Wyler's classic. As evidenced in "Diary of a Sergeant", Russell was all down and out with his life, then this film was shown to him and a various perspective was brought to him. Like McGonegal, he mastered his hooks for a nice time, participated in a nice movie and won some awards for it (2 Oscars now and for the same role), graduated from college and led a successful life, everytime carrying that nice large smile of his. So, when a movie carries such a massive weight to the mission where an individual moves to accomplish something fresh and finds a various meaning to his or her life, I guess you must approve it in any way. We aspire that movies can be exactly like that sometimes. To create a difference in people's lives. This one certainly did. 9/10
