Jackie Robinson: A Life Remembered by Maury Allen
An interesting approach to an autobiography, "Jackie Robinson A Life Remembered" is a crisply written bio by one of the best baseball writers ever, Maury Allen.
What makes this interesting for me, was the personal recollections from his teammates and contemporaries, interspersed with linking passages by Allen.
It flows surprisingly well, and reads lightning quick, nearly as quick as the subject's speed from first to second.
One thing I came away with, is how heroic Mr. Robinson really is. He truly is a central figure in American civil rights; he might be the single most important figure, more so than MLK.

Wow did I love this series! I missed it during the original broadcast, but based on what people have told me, I gambled on this box set. I feel like I hit the jackpot.
It's definitely not for everyone though. No sirree.
First of all, if you're squeamish, the brilliantly reproduced surgeries can be a bit nauseating. (I'm a surgeon, and I loved 'em. My wife, an ex-nurse, had to close her eyes...)

Third, if you appreciate good acting, it… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine film from 2003., July 4 2004
2003 proved to be one of our better years in film, in recent memory, didn't it?
After reading several other reviews, there is little to add, so let me reiterate:
1) Anthony Minghella has created another romantic epic like (but not as good as) "The English Patient".
2) Jude Law and Nicole Kidman are fine, and Renee Zellweger is flat-out amazing. Compare "Bridget Jones' Diary" to "Chicago" to this and her range is clearly impressive.
3) The music is haunting and the cinematography lush.
4) The battle scenes have a 'Saving Private Ryan" immediacy to them, notably the opening one.
A beautifully told tale, which does the source… Read more
