DVD - 2001
Rate this:
This documentary shows how Harold Ross, a high school dropout and miner's son from Colorado, started the sophisticated New Yorker magazine in 1925 by masterfully capturing the Jazz Age spirit, Broadway glamour and ultra-dry wit. Incorporating a rich array of film clips from the 20s and 30s -- speakeasies, jazz bands, rising skyscrapers -- this film reflects a dazzling Manhattan evoking an image of a metropolis that still glitters. Includes interviews with current and former New Yorker staffers.
