    1-0 out of 5 stars PURE GARBAGE!!
    Excuess me people. But I made the unfortunete mistake of purchasing this bit of "FILTH".....After the first 30 seconds of viewing...I "Ripped it to PIECES"....GARBAGE!! is a poor explanation of this;......Mistake of film. Does not even have the "Class" of, "Lord of the Flies." Either verson English or American. This is nothing but a "Nude Romp" on an obscure Italian Beach by Children who's parents should be HORSE WHIPPED for allowing their sons to particiapte in this....Poorly made, poorly filmed, Horse Dung covered film.
    If this is an example of what Directors and Producers "Think" people want to view?.....Than the "West" is surely in trouble.
    Allowing for the fact that it is a foreign film?..I tried to think of it objectively.....If you want to see a truely "Good" Foreign Film?...Then watch, "The Lamb".....At least this movie? Has some Class.....And not a "Lot" of; "A--"!!
    Buyer Beware, unless you have a really strong stomach.....Or a really "Bad" need.
    Don't make the same mistake I made......This film is SICKENING to say the least.

    1-0 out of 5 stars THE WORST "GAY" FILM
    I saw this attempt to make a "movie" when it was first released theatrically.

    The premise--sort of a "gay" "Lord of the Flies"--is dashed by non-existent direction, script, acting etc. What you end up with is endless scenes on the beach of barely clothed pubscent "boys." (...) There is no sex.

    Total disaster.

    If you want to see films about young people dealing with gayness, stick with classics such as the masterful, "For a Lost Soldier" or the touching, terrifying and insightful "L.I.E." or the still wonderful, "You Are Not Alone," a gay "Zero for Conduct."

    Anyone paying (...) for this atrocity will, rightfully, want their money back. Unless, you want to see scantly clad boys wander for over an hour along the seashore. If that's your trip, this is what you want. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Christy's Line Dancing with Ease
    I have used this video to intoduce my elementary students to basic line dance steps. Christy has a wonderful way of teaching in a fun, yet understandable manner. My upper elementary students were able to catch on to the steps without frustration, unlike other line dance videos I've used. Christy breaks down the harder steps into small segments so that it doesn't overwhelm the new learner. If you want to learn a variety of line dances with ease, this is the video to purchase. Christy also comes to the Texas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance Convention each year and attracts a huge crowd that is eager to learn her old favorites, as well as the latest dance moves. If you have the opportunity to see her in person, she will inspire you to attempt any style of dance. She has many other wonderful videos that I have also used. I have never been dissatisfied with any of her products.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best!!!
    This video made it so easy to learn all the dances. I had sat on the sidelines too embarrased to try in public. After using the video I was able to join in. This is a great way way to learn!

    5-0 out of 5 stars My hat's off to Christy Lane!!
    My hat is off to Christy Lane for producing this great dance video! Finally a tape where the instructor puts her back to the camera so I don't have to turn my head 180 degrees to learn the steps. I bought this video because most line dance videos only have about 5 dances and this one has 22 so I definitely got my moneys worth. Christy did a great job in the terminology section breaking each step down so when I got to the intermediate and advanced line dances, I was able to breeze through them. This video was a great resource for all the #1 classic line dances that hit big. I highly recommend it - take it from a real Texan!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Rev up your Rewind Button
    Sheesh, I never had to hit rewind so many times in my life!!!! If I'm buying this Old Dance video at a very high price, it's obvious that I'm a severe beginner in this style of dance, at a late state... Reviewing the terminology was good and the first few dances it was broken down nicely. She takes each pattern one at a time and starts from the beginning of the dance after each,,, but... once you pass the third dance it's like... Oh gee, let me show you this while I dance it. No more breaking down, no more start from the beginning for each pattern it's like... oh watch me ... this is it ok let's do it to music. And the music, by the way ... ewwww, but ok there might be some copyright issues in putting the actual songs on the tape, but then again... at..., you'd think you were already paying royalties. I'd do the same if I just went to a club and watched them dance it and tried to jump in on the second way around.... I'm very disappointed. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Joyous Celebration
    It has been years since I saw this quite competent and surprisingly delightful fiim at the movies. Others here have gone into the plot and brief nudity in the film.

    This film was widely acclaimed by the then usually homophobic press. I decided to see it after watching a t.v. show with Charles Champlin, former film critic of the L.A. Times. He was impressed with the simplicity and honesty of
    "You Are Not Alone" and so was I and several gay friends I saw it with.

    While certainly not a masterpiece, it is an excellent film. Few films then or since have captured the exhilarating joyous feeling of rebellious freedom on "coming out" that the climatic scene in this does.

    It was very much a fantasy ending then as it is now. But, I believe such celebrations of liberation can and do happen.

    "You Are Not Alone" is quite worthy of everyone's attention.

    If you can see it, do so. Most won't be disappointed.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Struggles to find direction.
    This movie is fairly watchable, but it lacks any real plot and is a bit disjointed. Although the main focus is on the love between two boys, there is very little beyond a few lustful glances, until the end scene where they share a long kiss. This kiss, however, is unconvincing, never shown in close up, and the boys seem unable to find each others mouths.

    There is some incidental nakedness, and the actors are pleasant enough to watch, but when the movie is over you tend to wonder what it was all about.

    However, it is a good time filler and captures the feel of the 1970s.

    4-0 out of 5 stars You Are Not Alone
    You Are Not Alone is a wonderfully tender movie about a 12 year old boy (Kim)coming of age. It is set in a boys boarding school in Denmark where 12 year old Kim's father is the school master. Kim lives in a seperate house with his parents on school grounds but quickly forms friendships with a number of the boaders, one in particular is 15 year old Bo who recognises Kim as special. A friendship ensures that leads to Kim sneaking out of his bedroom into Bo's bed in the middle of the night.

    There is a shower scene where Bo and Kim get lathered up and have a bit of fun but nothing too overt. The emphasis in this film is the tender and mutual relationship that develops between the boys.

    Kim and Bo decide to come out and show the rest of the school and Kim's parents a video they made about thier relationship that concludes with a long and passionate kissing scene.

    A woderful and delicately made coming of age film that is done tastefully. The emphasis in this film is on the mutual and tender relationship between Kim and Bo. A must for your collection if you can get hold of a copy. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Baby See 'N Sign
    Baby See 'N Sign was a big dissapointment to me. I was very excited to recieve it, and could hardly wait to see it. I immediately watched the video when I got it. Unfortunately, I was so bored I had to force myself to watch it! The video has lots of signs, but it has the same person doing and speaking them all-BORING!!! Baby See 'N Sign isn't fun at all.

    Fortunately, I had purchased another video at the same time that is wonderful! Signing Time with Alex and Leah is the video I reccomend to everyone who is interested in teaching their children sign language. I would even reccomend it to an adult who wants to learn!!! My 14 month old has all three volumes. We love to watch and practice them. He uses and can sign about fifty different words he learned by watching Signing Time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best in Baby Sign Language
    I am so very impressed with this video set! When my son was about 10 months old, I began to teach him sign language using books as a reference for learning it myself. I found that the flat diagrams were often up to my inexperienced interpretation. The videos were so easy for both my son and I to follow and practice with that now my two year old son and I both know nearly all of the signs on both videos! My husband and mother have also learned many of our most often used words in sign language and are able to understand and reciprocate our efforts. I was pleased to discover that learning signs from books and flash cards became easier since I now had a reference point from which to interpret the movements in the pictures. My son and I speak our second language often throughout the day, with and without spoken words to accompany it. My husband and I have found that sometimes our toddler will respond better to our nonverbal sign language reminders and commands when he is being too emotional or distracted to listen to our verbal cues! We've even had the pleasure of coming across a deaf gentleman who works at a local store and who was delighted that we made the effort to speak his language:) I am planning on getting the DVD set and then lending my videos to interested friends and I eagerly look forward to future publications!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product
    These videos are terrific. The first one was a gift and I was skeptical. My daughter loved the video, but it only appeared to be entertainment for her, then one day she signed "milk" it was amazing. She has continued to enjoy the videos and constantly uses more signs. Even now that she is almost two years old (and starting to talk)she continues to enjoy the videos and sign, often when she is tired she will only sign sometimes she will sign and talk at the same time. I cannot imagine a child not being able to do this. when she successfully communicates she is very happy. She enjoys the videos and her hand motions are continually improving. Last week she signed "dog" which i was surprised to see becasue it is a two part sign and she can already say the word. My daughter is also quite picky about the videos she watches, and these two and the baby Einstein videos are the only ones she will watch, so she is a tough customer. A great product I can't wait for volume III (I enjoy watching with her) Thank you for a entertaining and teaching my daughter to sign! Best wishes

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun way to begin teaching ASL to babies!
    I bought Baby See N Sign Vol. I and II for my daughter when she was 12 months old. She just turned 15 months and signs all the time!

    At first, she would only watch a couple of minutes at a time. I would put in the tapes and let them run while we were playing nearby. Eventually she became extremely interested in the colorful pictures, and she actually began signing along with the tape.

    Now my daughter wants to know the signs for EVERYTHING. I cannot believe how receptive she has been! I never would have thought it possible. And yet, although she can say only five or six words, she can sign around 20.

    I am really looking forward to Volume III!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Starter Sign Video
    This video is a great place to start when wishing to sign with your young child. The pace is slow and the repetition is helpful for getting a good visual representation of each sign. What I didn't like about the tape was the mellow music. It is low and slow! I put in a cd with classical music in to play at the same time so the words and the music both could be heard at the same time. If you've bought the Signing Time videos you may be disappointed in the lack of action in this video, but it's a great starting place and there is a greater volume of signs than on the ST videos. If I had it to do over again, I'd purchase this video, then the Signing Time volumes 2 & 3 to move forward. ... Read more

    Description

    In perhaps the most important parenting work of the decade, Dr. Harvey Karp reveals an extraordinary treasure sought by parents for centuries --an automatic "off-switch" for their baby’s crying.

    No wonder pediatricians are praising him and thousands of Los Angeles parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna and Michelle Pfeiffer, have turned to him to learn the secrets for making babies happy.

    "I share with parents techniques known only to the most gifted baby soothers throughout history."

    In an innovative and thought-provoking reevaluation of early infancy, Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not fully ready for the world when they are born. His approach is based on three basic principles:

    ·The Missing Fourth Trimester: as odd as it may sound, babies cry is because they are born three months too soon.

    ·The Calming Reflex: the automatic reset switch to stop crying of any baby in the first few months of life.

    ·The 5 "S’s": five simple steps that trigger the calming reflex and guide cranky infants to calm and easy babies to serenity…and help them sleep longer, too.

    Dr. Karp also explains:

    How to calm a baby--in mere minutes.

    Why new babies can’t be spoiled.

    How to get a baby to sleep 1-2 hours longer?

    Dr. Karp places in the hands of parents, grandparents, and all childcare givers the necessary tools to be able to calm their babies almost as easily as…turning off a light. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Happy baby =Happy Parents
    Our 5 month old son has slept through the night since he was 6 weeks old and we owe it to Dr. Karp's techniques. The 5 S's work great...swaddling and shushing are our favorites. This DVD is a must for all new parents. Everyone says we are just lucky, that we have a good baby. I think we have a good baby because we utlized these techniques from the beginning. A well slept baby is a happy baby. Our son is truly the happiest baby on the block, and we are the happiest parents on the block! (And not sleep deprived!) Thank you Dr. Karp for making our first try at parenting easy! By the way, at 5 months he still sleeps swaddled.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must-Have" For Every New Parent
    This video is amazing! The companion book is very interesting and helpful, especially with the background and medical research that underlie the techniques in the video. But for new parents, the video is an absolute god-send! It is enormously helpful to see Dr. Karp apply his techniques to a dozen screaming babies, and calm each of them within seconds! Watching the video really brings home the point that calming babies is not a hit-or-miss exercise, but a REFLEX that anyone can learn to trigger. And for stressed out new parents, watching the video is simple, easy and clear. My three-year-old even mastered the technique and regularly applies it to her dollies. Really, if you have a fussy baby, or are looking for a baby gift that will be used and appreciated, the video and book are a must.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a must see for all expecting parents
    This is the best information available for new moms and dads on how to calm the baby. It will help a lot to watch it during the last trimester of pregnancy so that you will be prepared right from the birth of the child. Of course, you wont have time to watch the dvd once the baby is born.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Karp is a god for new parents
    I read the book first, which was so helpful and clear on its own. But then a friends lent me her DVD copy and it was a great compliment to the book. I have a 2 month old at home and we use all of the 5 "S" multiple times every day. To see Dr. Karp at work and see how he could calm the babies was so wonderful. The DVD is nice, too, because its like the Cliff Notes version of the book. Whereas my husband hates to read, he was very interested in watching the DVD and it helped to iilustrate the points I was trying to explain to him in the book. I also showed the DVD to my parents, my in-laws, our babysitter, and all of my friends with babies. We then bought multiple copies to have to give as gifts to new parents as well as my parents who bought multiple copies to give to their friends who are having new grandchildren. The DVD is definitely worth the money, even if you already read the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars SHOULD BE A BABY SHOWER GIFT
    Some how this DVD made it to my hands. I lent it to my sister-in-law before even watching it (she was due 6 months before me). One day I was watching her new son, and popped it in. I was truely amazed. Becoming a new mom is very scary, but this gave me a new sense of secutity and put me at ease. With these techniques, I'm sure to be a great mom. ... Read more

    From their magical animated world, Alex (who can hear) and Leah (who is Deaf) invite infants and children to "Come sign with us!" Watch and enjoy as Alex, Leah, and their friends of varying ages share American Sign Language (ASL) with your child in a fun and playful way. Come join us for Signing Time!

    Research shows that babies can communicate with signs long before they are able to speak. And children have fun--and become smarter--learning a second language. Validating what their parents have long experienced first-hand, signing children have:

    Fewer tantrums

    Higher IQ scores

    Larger vocabularies

    By combining singing children and infants, delightful animation and music, and an adult to model each sign, Signing Time is sure to captivate pre-verbal infants and toddlers, as well as preschool-aged children while reinforcing these beginning signs.

    With Signing Time, children will discover how to experience the world around them using signs. So come join Alex, Leah, and all their friends for Signing Time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Sign Language Tool Available!
    I got a LOT of Sign language videos and books our of the library before I bought these. I just could not learn signs from a book. I needed to see it. I like these dvd's the best because they're fun and use music to help teach some of the signs. My son likes these because of all the kids signing. Even my husband likes them and has learned these signs. This is the DVD we started with and these were the first signs he used. We got these at 9 months and 13 months he started signing MORE, MILK, BIRD, DOG, AIRPLANE all in a one week period. We can't say enough good things about Signing Time! and we are eagerly awaiting volumes 4,5, and 6. I just wish we got these when he was born. I won't wait to start signing with my next child.

    5-0 out of 5 stars best video to learn signing with your kids
    The Signing Time series is wonderful because it's fun and full of smiles and facial gestures that are totally lacking in other videos. Anyone who has seen sign in action knows that sign language has lots of facial gestures to help communicate what is being signed. This series not only has cute animation but the two children are delightful and so happy. The mother who signs is wonderful to watch and hear. The kids in our playgroup (we all have hearing children) really enjoy watching the videos and learn SO QUICKLY (especially if they are over 12 mos. old). I would and DO recommend this as your first video to learn sign language, children OR adults.
    The only criticism I have with the video (and others) is why do they have to teach the sign for "cookie" to children!?! I can't tell you how quickly my son picked THAT one up, much to my chagrin. ;)

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this video
    My 2 and 1/2 year old son has a speech delay. These video's saved us. He would grunt for everything. Now, if he wants a cookie, he uses that sign. I couldn't believe it worked. I thought there was no way, but it did. He is learning to talk but for the words he can't say, this video is the best! Plus I have learned sign language myself along with my other two children. They can understand my son and help him to remember signs. It is worth every penny! By the 3rd time he watched one of the video's he started to sign to me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST SIGNING VIDEOS OUT THERE!
    I purchased all three Signing Time videos when my son was 6 months old. He is almost two now and still loves the videos! He knows and practices ALL the signs from Signing Time 1,2 and 3! He signs while speaking, which is very helpful when new verbal words are spoken! Don't pass these videos up! You won't be dissapointed if you are serious about teaching your child to sign!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for kids AND parents
    We decided to start signing with our infant son in order to help him learn langauge and to communicate with him on some level. We were surprised how much Signing Time helped him get into signing. The video is fun to watch and seeing other children do their versions of the signs seemed to help our son. Seeing the very young signers also helps us recognize his version of a sign, since some signs are a little beyond infant motor skills. This first volume is maybe a little less polished than the next two in the series, but I heartily reccomend getting all three! ... Read more

    Scientists discover that a pair of giant crabs mutated by atomic tests is responsible for the disappearance of researchers on a remote island. The crabs, which assimilate the voices and intellects of their victims, slowly destroy the island as they thin out the rescue party until a do-or-die plan is hatched. This early effort by Roger Corman has been labeled as schlock due to its pulpy title and atrocious monster effects, but the script by Charles B. Griffith, while stretched thin by the usual low-budget constraints, is more intriguing and gently self-deprecating than a movie about monster crustaceans should be (Griffith also wrote the blackly comic scripts for A Bucket of Blood and Corman's original Little Shop of Horrors). The script's handling of the monsters is especially notable; the crabs' malevolent logic flies in the face of 1950s creature standards, which demanded that monsters be drooling and dumb. And Corman's fast-and-furious direction delivers a surprising number of shocks (most notably, the alarming "bus" when Little Shop alumnus Mel Welles's character meets his fate) as it barrels toward the film's slam-bang conclusion. Sharp-eyed character actor fans will spot among the cast Russell Johnson and Ed Nelson, years before their respective TV fame on Gilligan's Island and Peyton Place; longtime Corman bit player Beach Dickerson and screenwriter Griffith portray sailors. Made for $70,000, the film grossed approximately $1 million, making it Corman's most profitable picture of the period.

    Remember those hokey old "B" thrillers from the 50's? Remember your youth when it seemed like everyone had seen every 'monster' movie and loved to talk about it?

    I remember having a friend over for the evening, watching our old B&W tv, and throwing a blanket over the monitor and ourselves -- we were in a drive-in *grin*. Shows like this were what we watched.

    This film is a great 'time trip' back to those early days of monster movies when atom bomb testing (did we really detonate those things above ground?) was the cause for every mutation or monster loosed on humanity. As a young boy, it had scared me -- the voices in the night and an island which kept getting smaller gave me dreams. Of course, today's film crowd would hoot at it. But it's not the cinematography, special effects or even the story that makes this flick one worth adding to your library. It's the wistful return to our youth that gives it charm.

    If you were born after 1970, you'll probably not have much in common with this film -- bypass it. However, if you grew up watching 'Chiller Theater' and 'Movie of the Week', this film will transport you back in time to the less complex world of our childhood.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Famous Monsters of Filmland fans will love it
    I've wanted to get this movie on video for years, and finally got one thanks to Amazon. A glorious low-budget Roger Corman piece that has some surprisingly clever ideas in its script, and a bit of genuinely creepy atmosphere. Sure, the crab monsters themselves are a bit naff, but that's exaactly what you expect when you watch a movie like this. If you can't appreciate the finer points of a B-movie, you should obviously stay well away. But if you remember watching this one on television when you were a kid, like me, you may find yourself drawn to it the same way I was.

    The print used for the video is not very good, unfortunately. Too much contrast, and it looks like it's more than one generation down from the master video copy. It makes it difficult to see what's happening at times. I don't know if other editions have better video quality. Although the edition I have is recorded at SP, it almost looks as if it were dubbed from an EP tape.

    But you know what? I'm still happy I have the video. Any Saturday morning I can escape back to my childhood by watching a cheap B&W monster flick is a good one to me, and this is a perfect movie to fit the bill.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Monster Movie!
    This movie was another Grade B gem from the master of these
    types of films Roger Corman.A rescue party is sent to an island
    to rescue a group of scientists.The rescue party discovers that earthquakes are decimating the island. They make a scarier discovery in the forms of giant crabs who have undergrown a
    tremendous growth cycle because of atomic testing.One by one
    these monster crabs kill and eat the members of the rescue team.
    It is an all out battle for survival.Who will win? The monster
    crabs or the rescue team members.This movie stays exciting until
    the ending. This is a unique film that you will enjoy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Crabs take over the island...
    Another Roger Corman classic staring monsters from the deep. This time we have a research team investigating an island for effects of radiation. We all know that radiation in a black and white film creates monsters. This time is no exception.

    In typical Corman fashion, the plot is established and the terror begins and at first we only see the handywork of the monsters and not the monsters themselves. As quakes wrack the island, causing large sections to disappear, and scientists disappear, we become aware that there are some nast giant crabs on the island. They have been eating the scientists and causing the island to sink. If that wasn't enough, they have absorbed the knowledge, and voices, of those they have eaten.

    The film climaxes with the final battle between the survivors and the crabs on all that remains of the island (about 10 yards across).

    This is the type of movie that makes B-movies so much fun. Monsters, suspense, bad effects, melodrama and sinking islands. Great film.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pay no attention to the wheels and legs under the monsters
    If you see only one talking crab monster movie in your life then this 1957 bad B-movie from director Roger Corman is the one to check out. The monsters are stupid looking, the dialog is laughable, but just keep in mind the film's tagline--"From the depths of the sea... a tidal wave of terror!"--and enjoy the film. The idea is that some scientist types are off to a Pacific island to study the effects of atomic radiation (they are bad; worse than you can imagine). What they discover are a pair of giant crabs who (wait until you hear this) ate the previous group of scientists, thereby absorbing their knowledge and allowing them to imitate the voices of their human victims so they can get more people to munch on. Just to make things fair the humans have guns and grenades, but they are trapped on the island when their plane explodes and bad weather stops their radios from working. Oh, and did I mention that the island is slowly sinking into the sea?

    Of course the scientists are mostly menu items, which leaves it to our hero, Hank (Russell "The Professor" Johnson), who proudly declares "I'm no scientist, I'm a technician and a handy man." Well, those are the people who made this country and most monster movies great. The human voices from the crabs are rather lame, but the clicking sound they make with their pinchers has its moments. This is a nice example of an early Corman quick and dirty production, the second of nine films the director made that year: "Not of This Earth," "Naked Paradise," "Teenage Doll," "The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent," "The Undead," "Sorority Girl," "Rock All Night," and "Carnival Rock." But none of those have fake looking talking crabs rolling around on wheels on a sinking island talking with the voices of the human beings they consumed. Look for screenwriter Charles B. Griffith as Tate and keep in mind that actors Beach Dickerson (Ron Fellows) and Ed Nelson (Ensign Quinlan) are doing double-duty as the operators of the crab monsters. "Attack of the Crab Monsters" definitely goes in the so bad it is good category. In fact, this one might become your textbook definition of bad Science Fiction B-Movie. It is a two-star movie but a four-star experience. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars --An experience never to forget--
    Seeing this film for the first time was not exactly an easy thing to get through. Watching the torcher at first hand is alot easier to understand then a teacher trying to explain it (not saying they do a bad job). This film gives you an upclose + personal look at life as a prisoner in one of the death camps. It also gives you a tour of some of them, and you'll be surprised how many there were, not only the famous ones like Auswitz. I can't express enough the fact that its not an easy film to get through, but its one that everyone in this world should see, everyone should know what they went through, and everyone should know and be sure to see that something like this will never happen again.
    --My Prayers to all those who not only died, but who survived to tell the tale of the Holocaust--

    **And i really recomend this film**

    5-0 out of 5 stars History-Social Studies Educator's Perspective
    Every history-social studies teacher is given the almost impossible task of describing to students things which we have not personally seen. The challenge of teaching the Holocaust becomes even greater, because most people cannot begin to imagine the horrors let alone the mind that could conceive them. Our challenge as educators is not to just to communicate the concept, it is to provide understanding. Once the process of understanding has begun, our task is then to help students deal with it.

    To do this in any real manner is next to impossible. Hollywood has tried to depict the events but falls far short. This is not Hollywood's fault. The Holocaust is too vast, far beyond description, and just how far is in some small way shown in this film.

    The footage comes from the official film record taken by Allied Forces in Europe. Labelled "The Death Camps," the film documents not only some of the smaller camps, but some of the other institutions of mass murder. Living survivors, like walking skeletons with terror in their eyes along with the callousness of the Germans is all there. Bergen-Belsen is beyond description.

    Auschwitz is not included because it was captured by the Russians. The film record of Auschwitz is, retrettably, scant. The film is in black and white and has precious little narration. Only one clip with a voice recording. The images are as dispassionately shown as possible.

    Clearly, this video is shocking and graphic. It is not for the faint at heart, but it is mandatory viewing for any history-social studies educator. Since 1945, there have been more than a dozen attempted genocides. This is a lesson that must be learned if we are going to survive as a species.

    This is not just a video. It is a historical archive of one of the greatest horrors the world has ever seen.

    4-0 out of 5 stars You don't know what it was like until you've seen this......
    I'm a fifteen year old student in high school and our teacher let us watch a portion of this video after reading Elie Wiesel's "Night". It definately helped me get a better understanding of the death camps. As a student it is hard to understand and believe that this type of inhumane activity happened, but after getting a visual of the mass graves and the diseased, hungry, mistreated people it gave us the right impression. ...

    The legendary distance runner Steve Prefontaine blazed across tracks and into America's consciousness before meeting a tragic death in an auto accident at the age of 24.In this tribute to "Pre," narrated by writer Ken Kesey, a number of his contemporaries speak movingly of him as an athlete and a person.After setting high school running records in his native Oregon, Prefontaine went on to the University of Oregon, where as a freshman he began to dominate the American track scene and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He was a distinctive character and archival films demonstrate the charisma and astounding confidence he brought to his sport.His race in the 5,000 meters at the 1972 Munich Olympics is shown in detail, with other runners in the race offering commentary on the gutsy performance of the 21-year-old.Pre didn't win a medal in the race, but as his sister puts it, the race "matured him" and made him determined to win gold at the 1976 Montreal Olympics (which he wouldn't live to do).Though one of the world's best athletes, after college he was forced to survive on food stamps, and he became a spokesman for the plight of amateur athletes. This is a touching look at a brilliant athlete and a charming character who still inspires runners today. --Robert J. McNamara ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pre!
    If you were a runner in the early '70s, Steve Prefontaine was your idol. Give Frank Shorter and Bill Rodgers and even Lasse Viren their due, it was Pre who captured the essence of running as no other ever had or probably ever will. The guy had charisma - loads of it - and a style that grabbed you by the shorts and pulled you around the track with him. Was he America's greatest runner? Probably not, but who knows how good he could have been had his awesome potential not been snuffed. He may not have been the best, but he certainly inspired more runners than any of his contemporaries. The video provides comments and insights from family, friends and athletic rivals, and the footage from some of his races - particularly the 1972 Olympic 5000 meters - is an adrenaline-pumping reminisce of a spirit in American running we may never see again. This video allows the viewer to vicariously experience that fire and magic one more time.

    I purchased this video for my son who is a runner on his high school's track team. I didn't realize that the film would have such an impact on him, in that he has watched it three times already and has shared it with his teammates as well. Prefontaine has become an icon to these runners, an inspiration for them to take their running to the next level. My son is now planning to continue to compete in college: this fall on the XC team and on the track team in the spring.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Runner
    As a high schooler who ran cross-country and track Pre was an inspiration. I learned about him around those times. I even cut out a picture of him in a magazine and put it over my bed as an inspiration before every track meet I competed in. This documentary must be real good!! It's a must for any track enthusiast, runner, or any Pre fans. He was an inspiration. If he had lived he probably would have been one of the greatest track coaches of all time like Bill Bowerman was. He's in my top 10 of one of the greatest track stars of all time! What A Runner!!! Thanks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Legend Lives On!
    I remember watching Prefontaine doing his practice runs around the fields at North Bay Junior High School in Hauser, Oregon when I was a student there. I was aware of his achievements and was in awe of him. It was such a thrill to be able to watch him practice. His is a truly inspirational story. I went on to run long distance myself at his rival school in North Bend, OR. I would have given anything to have half his natural talent. I also watched him in the 1972 Olympics on television and still remember the emotions involved. I will always admire Prefontaine and wonder about the greatness that would have been. Someday Hollywood will do his story right. ... Read more

    This movie was very subtle in the story. The young American boy must overcome the loss of his family and at the same time dealing with finding himself alone on a desert Isle. He befriends another young boy that had been living on the island for a time and the two work toward mutual survival. A clean family friendly version of Robinson Caruso.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb
    This is an excellent video. The first one was good and this one is even better. It ties words together so that children can begin to use two and three signs in a sentence. For instance- Share and please are tied together. The words are flashed up on the screen and then the adult shows the children how to make the sign. Then you will see several different children and several examples of this items and then the adult will show the sign again. There is more singing and more signing in this video.

    We have learned a lot as a family with this one.

    Enjoy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for every Childs Video Library
    We bought the 3 volume set along with the music CD when Leah's mom was featured on "Good Morning America" about 1 1/2 years ago. My girls (2 and 5) still just love them. They ask for them over the typical Disney and Nickolodean videos we have. Everyone who has ever watched them is so captivated by the original music, the animation, and all the different children signing. I actually forget there is a purpose to watching them too. As far as content, the videos contain what I'd consider the most, needed, important words that babies and children would use (except "please" and "thank you").

    I also love the fact that they give many different examples of the word being signed like "water". They show an ocean, a child drinking from a water fountain, Leah splashing in animated water puddles, a baby taking a bath, children in a swimming pool, etc. as well as lots of children showing the sign for "water".

    This video is such a fun way for children (and parents)to learn sign language and we have loaned them out on numerous occasions to nieces, nephews, and friends so that they can learn and enjoy them too. Everyone loves them!

    One thing about these videos that I have not seen mentioned yet in the reviews is that actual written word is flashed on the screen before they actually go into all of many different children doing the sign. Great pre-reading and word recognition exercise as far as this mom is concerned. It seems like they thought of everything. I just wish there were more then 3 out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first one!
    The "Signing Time" video series is targeted to young hearing children (intended audience: 0-5 years), though it is a wonderfully non-threatening way for persons of any age to learn sign language. Parents don't need to already know sign language in order to help their children learn the signs in the videos. The videos are quite thorough - with each sign being demonstrated once by Rachel (mother of a deaf child, and co-creator of the series), and then multiple times in a variety of situations by a variety of children. (Note that volumes 2 and 3 are a little less repetitious than Volume 1 - for better or worse, depending on your preference.) The narration on the videos is done primarily by young children. The signs are linked well with the objects, emotions, etc., that they represent. The children in the videos are "real" - demonstrating the signs in their own imperfect ways, according to their abilities - much the same as when children learn to speak with their voices. There is cute animation and fun background music with sound effects that make the videos pleasing to watch.

    I purchased volumes 1-3 of the Signing Time video series a few weeks ago (along with the music CD containing all the songs in these volumes). While volume 1 ("My First Signs" - with 18 signs) is very good, volumes 2 ("Playtime Signs" - with 28 signs) and 3 ("Everyday Signs" - with 32 signs) are even better. For starters, I thought Rachel looked too serious and tense when she demonstrated signs in the first video, whereas she appears more relaxed and inviting in the newer videos. Perhaps more importantly, though, the latter two videos make much broader use of Rachel's musical talents, with catchy, original songs sprinkled throughout the video (as opposed to only an opening and closing song in the first video). Another change is that in the 2nd and 3rd videos, words are presented in groups (e.g., hot & cold, friend & play, etc) rather than individually. I was disappointed that there isn't a parent's guide with the videos, but I have found helpful information on the signingtime.com website. If you need to be convinced of the benefits of teaching sign language to your hearing child, or you want to see clips from the videos, check out that website. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for absolute beginners!
    As a complete beginner, I appreciated the appropriate pacing. The video progresses at a nice slow pace and all the moves are repeated a couple times to give the viewer time to adjust and make the moves correctly. The instructor also shows all moves from both the left and the right side, which is helpful. There's a nice combination movement at the end where you can put all your 'skills' together in one final grand mini-movement. This is not like a typical workout video where you sweat buckets after the class (like a cardio video), but it is definitely challenging, especially if you are a non-dancer, and great fun if you love the ballet. I have only one complaint: the dancers do not do their movements in mirror image so you can just copy them literally... if you're supposed to go to the right, then the dancers go to the right as well (which is left when you're watching them). This is a bit off-putting for me since I am used to just copying instructors in the front of me literally. But after all, this is a tape and you can pause, stop, rewind, etc whenever you want. Highly recommended for beginners!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a good beginner's video
    I would recommend this video to anyone who is just beginning ballet! It goes over the very basic of steps, simple enough for anyone of any age. This tape definately does not replace going to an actual dance class, but is good to have so that when you start a class, you will know the basics.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Educational Video
    I have been teaching dance for over 20 years and I finally found a good beginning ballet video that I can share with parents to give them a great introdution to the dance form. Also, it is a good opportunity for students and teachers to make sure that their terminology is correct. I like the educational style of the tape. Good job.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Beginner's Best
    As a beginner, I love this tape. I had read the other reviews and did not agree with a few, so I am posting my own. This ballet class is taught in a dance classroom, and I thought the quality was fine. I have never taken a ballet class, but have always wanted to. Like others, I am to nervous to try this in a public setting. I was able to follow along easily, and needed the pace to be slow. The repetition didn't bother me, because I am so new to this, and from what I have observed by watching several classes, this tape is right on the mark. I had purchased other tapes that seemed to dance off without me, and I cheer this instructor for thinking of the novice. After many failed attempts, I have found something that fits.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's brilliant
    I recommed this video if you love ballet and want a different type of workout. I workout to it everyweek and showing good results for the effort. I have now purchased the second video in the series and can't wait to start working out to that. A big thumbs up! ... Read more

By the end of the war she had lost her parents, brother, home, possessions, and community; even the dear friends she made in the labor camps, with whom she had shared so many hardships, were dead. A journey of survival through one of the most devastating events in the history of mankind. ... Read more

I show this video on the first day of a college-level Documentary Production class I teach each Spring.

    Story about 2 children whose immune systems are tragically damaged and have to live in separate plastic bubbles. But isolation and distant hospital technicians can not inhibit the beguiling spirit and supernatural bond between them. There is plenty of child nudity with many front and rear views. Later on they meet up with 3 other kids (all nude) and have a nice time playing together. If you liked "The Boy In The Plastic Bubble" or like child nudity this movie is for you. You should also consider The Annunciation and Pretty Baby.

    As with all gatekeeper reviews, the focus is on nudity, sex and violence, something that is of interest to everyone but seldom commented on.

    I was concerned with my child's speech at 14 mos. She was only using a couple of words and was not babbling very much. This video was recommended on the Baby Center online language and learning concerns bulletin board so I thought I would give it a try. My daughter responded to the video the first time I put it in! She copied some of the sounds and imitated some noises. Plus it kept her attention! It has jump-started her babbling and she continues to enjoy it each time she watches it. Now she says all the words in the video and more.

    5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!!!
    I received this as a gift for my daughter's birthday and we LOVE it! The different sounds and music keep her very interested. She has picked up on the sign language and tries to talk more and more everyday. I would definately recommend this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great interactive and fun learning tool!
    I received this video as a gift when our son was one year old. He is now 20 months old and continues to love this video!!! I love how interactive the video is. We often watch it as a family and imitate the sounds and actions we hear and see. I personally learned a lot from the parent tutorial and strongly believe this video has helped in the development of our sons speech. I often will see him mimic the actions, sounds, and concepts that are so vividly projected in this video in his everyday play. I highly recommend this video for every child.

    5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE this video!
    I used this video for the first time with my 5 month old daughter. She was intrigued and entertained, watching it many times from start to finish. Now she is 19 months old and absolutely loves it! It is the first video I have seen that she actually participates and talks with. She makes the fun noises, does the sign language, and has learned most of the words. I am so happy to have gotten this video. I would highly recommend it. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Borge's Superb; Tape is Terrible
    As to be expected, Victor Borge provides absolute joy with his performance of various presentations on this tape. Disgustingly, however, the tape degrades your pleasure. Why? Simply because the tape is recorded at SLP. Never mind that it COULD HAVE BEEN recorded at SP with a quantum leap in quality. No, the bean counters, intent on saving a mere pittance in tape, chose to record at SLP. They didn't, however, lower the price from a rather hefty near-twenty bucks to start with to half that price. You'll still enjoy seeing Borge at his best. However, be prepared for poor video quality at less than closeup shots and exceptionally tinny audio during high notes of his piano playing. It's so sad that great entertainment such as this is nearly ruined by the quest for the almighty dollar. Or, in this case, probably no more than an extra fifty cents worth of tape.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Musical Comedy My Family Has Ever Seen
    What can I say? We laughed until we cried the first time we saw it, but the humor never grows old. It gets better each time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Funny and some great music too!
    This man is a gem. His comic genius cannot be matched and his ability to play the piano and still be funny is unbelieveable. Just sit down for an evening of great music and laugh your cares away. Well for a few hours at least.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Classic Victor Borge Style
    What more can I say? If you haven't heard of or watched his routine, you need to. It's clean, quick-witted and very entertaining. If you've seen it once, it's the same routine he does everywhere, but that's not to say it isn't worth watching more than once.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazingly funny
    This movie was one of the best I have ever seen. Victor Borge is hillarious, and very talented. I find my self and my friend quoting parts of the movie- because it's so funny! All I need to say is- "Negi Negi" and we're laughing histerically. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible film!
    "Chronicle of a Boy Alone" ("Cronica de un nino solo") from Argentina, was one of the most harrowing and gut-wrenching films I've ever seen. The director uses a unique approach when it comes to filming. Instead of jumping back and forth from one camera-angle to another, he chooses to use a single camera in many scenes, panning in or out as the scene requires.

    The little 11 year-old-boy in this film experienced a total loss of human-parental contact, and this void in his life became too much for the child.

    Being from the U.S., we are not accustomed to viewing scenes like the ones we occasionally see in this film. The orphanage scenes are emotionally impactful. When the two little boys decide to go swimming, they soon find themselves being chased from their swimming hole by older kids. During their escape, we see the two boys completely unclothed for several minutes of the film. The director does not attempt to film these pre-teen boys from behind or the waist up, but instead chose to film the boys with a single camera from in front of these children.

    I wish I could say this film had a happy ending. Sadly, it reminds us of the plight of so many children in our world. Although filmed many years earlier, this movie resembles the classic Brazilian movie "PIXOTE" about another 10-year-old boy.

    Overall, I would recommend this film to anyone who needs an emotional burst of energy, to be thankful for the things we have in this life, and in the environment in which we live.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Banned by the Argentinian government
    CHRONICLE OF A BOY ALONE Banned by the Argentinian government for nearly thirty years, CHRONICLE OF A BOY ALONE is a searing indictment of a fascist regime running roughshod over its most vulnerable citizens - its children. Focusing on the bleak life of Polin, a boy abandoned by his family and sent to live in a state-run orphanage, it is also a moving protrait of the human spirit imprisoned by the chains of well-intentioned fools. For inside the harsh confines of the supposedly benefical institution, Polin and his friends must deal with constant physical and psychological abuse as well as the emotional tensions brought on by their own burgeoning adolescence. ...
