BH Ramblin' Jack video (11) RE: BS: Ramblin Jack 06 Aug 01


The film is a truly moving documentary. If you are not an Elliot fan it matters not since his daughter has created a film that can stand on its own as a great piece of work. If you are a fan you can see him "warts" and all.

His daughter's object in this was, as she said, to come to terms with her relationship with her father.

One of the most moving scenes ( I feel) is when she asks her mother how Jack was as a father. The silence is deafening.

I think it can still be seen in a few art theaters, and I hope that someday a PBS Great Master's Show would carry it.
