    Great Documantary

    MGM-When The Lion Roars is one of the most fascinating documentaries in the history of the cinema. Louis B. Mayer and Irving Thalberg founded the studio and together built an empire of epic propotions. From the inception of the studio in 1924 to the late 1940's, MGM was considered the top studio in Hollywood. Sadly, after Mayers termination marked a gradual decline in the quality of the films that MGM produced. 1986 marked the end of MGM. This documentary has all the earmarks of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Thank goodness for film preservation that many of the MGM films can still be viewed today. It was said that MGM had more stars than in the heavens, and it is so true.
