Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
If you're of THAT generation --or if you just like old movies -- you'll remember those films.
They would be set in or just after World War II and they would feature American servicemen, always of course, as good guys.
Those productions faded from sight several years ago, but Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says they now seem on the verge of a comeback. He cites HBO's new 10-part miniseries, "The Pacific," as an example.
Set in the South Pacific in World War II, it tells of three Marines who participated in some of the war's bloodiest battles.
Sokolsky calls the miniseries admirable. It is, he says, a solid production, hampered by a few flaws, yet good enough to hold its own against anything competing networks put up against it.
