Please double check your local tv guide for the time in your area. It may be a bad time for you so you may want to set those recorders. I haven't seen this one yet so I don't know much about it but I plan to watch it.

wtl471629; Well worth watching and I rate IMDB******Six. Not a all time classic or landmark film, but few films are. There are already too many reviews which cover its salient points so no sense of us adding ours.

One thing though we have noticed with this film as well as BIRTH OF A NATION (1915) all the way too GONE WITH THE WIND (1939) how they romanticize the origins of the CIVIL WAR. They present every argument for its root cause except the real one. The preservation of a failure economic system based upon Human Slavery. All that 'States Rights' stuff or 'Southern Civilization & Honor' is just a smoke screen.

There have been times when many have died for a questionable cause. The Southern Confederacy was one of the worst.
