Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 5/28/07
Original Nancy Drew Movie Mystery Collection
This is something kids will like, particularly little girls, IF
you can get them to watch a black and white show. This ran as a series of
short movies in the 1930's, so I'm guessing that kids watched them at the
matinees. They are releasing these because of the new Nancy Drew movie
To me it is hard to watch because it's kind of boring, aimed at
kids back then. I think kids and elderly people will like to watch it (or
any devoted Nancy Drew fans). It says that it's a "complete set", but
there are only four "episodes".
The star is Bonita Granville, a sort of long-faced girl who
reminds me a little of Chloe in "Smallville". The other characters
involved in these movies include her dad, who was also prominent in the books,
and her school friends.
The only extras on this set are some theatrical trailers.
It is not a very expensive set, so it is worth the price anyway.
