If anything defined the 20th century as the age of anxiety, it's the cold war with its ultimate no-win nuclear endgame. While conflicts in Korea and Vietnam dragged on, providing the traditional images of modern warfare, some of the conflict's most dangerous battles were invisible--tactical, intellectual, and fought primarily in the minds and war rooms of U.S. and Soviet leaders: Kennedy, Krushchev, Castro, Kissinger, Gorbachev, and Reagan. This 8-volume, 24-episode series, narrated by Kenneth Branagh, is a comprehensive history that examines the key events of the arc of the Soviet Union, from its birth to its fall, and provides a thorough analysis of what was going on behind closed doors. Informed by the stories of 500 eyewitnesses--from citizens and soldiers to historians and statesmen--and strengthened by painstaking reconstruction of archival historical film footage, CNN's Cold War is a heroic undertaking and a sweeping chronicle of the world's most fragile decades. --Susan Benson

Some people may sneer at this 1965 musical, but the truth is the film has earned its status as a perennially watchable romantic-drama, largely on the strength of a fun story and chemistry between stars Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Veteran filmmaker Robert Wise (The Day the Earth Stood Still) mostly stays out of the way of the film's appealing elements, which include a based-on-fact tale of Austria's von Trapp family, who fled their Nazi-occupied country in 1938. Andrews is delightful and even fascinating as Maria, who sheds her tomboyish ways as a novice nun to accept the mantle of adulthood, becoming matron of the motherless von Trapp clan. Plummer is matinee-idol handsome and gives a smart performance to boot, and the cast of young people and kids who make up the singing von Trapp children make a strong impression. Based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein stage musical, the score includes such winners as "Maria" and the future John Coltrane hit "My Favorite Things." --Tom Keogh

|Napoleon (PBS Empires Series) [VHS]
Lowest new price: $11.99
Lowest used price: $4.98
Until someone invents a time machine, history buffs and more casual viewers have to time travel by watching productions like Napoleon, a rich documentary about one of the most compelling figures in history. This four-hour historic drama by Emmy-winning filmmaker David Grubin masterfully transports audiences to 18th- and 19th-century Europe. Narrated by historian David McCullough, this impressive production chronicles Napoleon Bonaparte's life--from a relatively humble farmhouse in Corsica to his days as a soldier, statesman, and overzealous emperor. Weaving lush footage of landscapes, stunning paintings of Bonaparte and his two wives, close-up shots of museum pieces, and interviews with top historians, this classy documentary delights and informs.
The best bet is to not watch it all in one take. PBS aired the show in two two-hour segments, which is about right. The piece is polished and dramatic but lags during some lengthy battle scenes. Yet by the end, viewers will feel like they've just finished a quickie college history class--a very good one. Watching Napoleon is like stepping into a glorious painting, one that tells in vivid brush strokes the story of a man determined to be master of the universe. --Joni Balter

Gone With the Wind [VHS]
(View amazon detail page)
David O. Selznick wanted Gone with the Wind to be somehow more than a movie, a film that would broaden the very idea of what a film could be and do and look like. In many respects he got what he worked so hard to achieve in this 1939 epic (and all-time box-office champ in terms of tickets sold), and in some respects he fell far short of the goal. While the first half of this Civil War drama is taut and suspenseful and nostalgic, the second is ramshackle and arbitrary. But there's no question that the film is an enormous achievement in terms of its every resource--art direction, color, sound, cinematography--being pushed to new limits for the greater glory of telling an American story as fully as possible. Vivien Leigh is still magnificently narcissistic, Olivia de Havilland angelic and lovely, Leslie Howard reckless and aristocratic. As for Clark Gable: we're talking one of the most vital, masculine performances ever committed to film. --Tom Keogh
