THE JOHNSTOWN FLOOD (Television Release USA 1992)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Johnstown Flood—documentaryis graphic especially in the voiceovers of the people dying off screen as Richard Dreyfuss narrates the film. The movie relies on good organization of story. Actors reiterate parts of actual persons who survived the flood. Scenes run on a black and white format with painted pictures depicting what Dreyfuss is talking about. The movie ends on a solemn note. This film was pulled from a television series, American Experience, and presented as a standalone film.
