Évocateur: The Morton Downey JR. Movie



The rise and fall of the legend Morton Downey JR. who was a complete original for talk shows. He was the trash talking host that could actually sing.



From the early years living next to the Kennedy compound till his death this documentary had it all.



This documentary included commentary from people that was in the audience, Michael Bey, Gloria Allred, Alan Dershowitz, and More...



The whole documentary had high production value from start to finish. Loved the animated sequences in this as well.



I say this is a must see documentary.

I watched this last night, and really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation, Kleenex!

Went to see the new Mission Impossible. I guess we were just really bored, without kids home. But it was ok, as far as MI goes of course.

How Green Was My Valley with Walter Pidgeon and Maureen O'Hara. It has been a long time since I first saw it.

The movie reminded me so much of Harry and his brother. I wish we would hear from them again. I still have the recording on All Through The Night. I play it every so often when I am sitting at the computer.

I remember that chain smoking guy on my TV. I haven't seen that documentary yet, but long before there were Jerry Springers, there was Morton Downey Jr.

Last night Glenn and I watched Flightplan, which was a pretty intense Jodie Foster film. By the conclusion, we were so confused and suspicious of just about everyone, we could hardly believe it. A real cliffhanger. We highly recommend it.
