If the film doesn't measure up as a piece of historical scholarship, it does manage to be a rather touching exploration of the troupe's life cycle: achieving notoriety, then being torn apart by fame, then being destroyed by forces beyond its control.

Presents a wide-ranging picture of a unique cultural phenomenon, even if subjects like Liza Minnelli too often fall into semiarticulate expressions of hagiographical awe.

Although the film recounts an intriguing slice of social history, it is too haphazard and repetitive to be truly memorable.

Will American viewers with no familiarity of this group find much to hold their interest ...? Yes, to a point. The documentary has an ace tucked in its spangled G-string: Liza Minnelli

Very entertaining, poignant documentary about a largely forgotten but truly groundbreaking bunch of entertainers.
