    Features interviews with retired artists' film and theater actors and actresses, set designers, cinematographers, casting directors, script supervisors, and so on—who reside in the Motion Picture Country Home in Los Angeles or in the Performing Arts Lodge in Toronto. They recount their experiences over decades of creative work in Hollywood and on theater stages worldwide and their anecdotes involve such fellow performers as Audrey Hepburn, Sean Connery, Roddy McDowall, John Wayne, and Elvis Presley, among many others. Their colorful reminiscences are blended with a wealth of archival footage, photos and film clips to illustrate the cultural legacy represented by these veterans of the performing arts.
