Audience Reviews for The Story of Mankind

    I saw it years ago as a child and thought I wanted to see it again. Don't bother. It has a few good moments, but they are not good enough nor do they occur often enough to merit watching it. Price hands in a good performance, and he looks great. Otherwise, pretty bad. Very superficial writing and even more superficial execution. Plodding. Unimaginative. One of the worst scenes showed Aristotle mixing chemicals with modern lab glassware. I suppose when you are in a hurry to make a movie you can't be bothered with details. The Cleopatra section features some of the worst acting I've seen. OUCH!

    This movie isn't as long as I had dreaded, so I was happy about that, but then on the other hand I was disappointed that we didn't get to see all of the great actors for very long. They all had short scenes, except for Price and Colman. I think maybe packing a film with so many stars wasn't such a great idea, although it does draw in more fans. This story has been seen before in many other more exciting movies too, so it doesn't even have that going for it. Overall, it was interesting to watch, and I loved Price and Colman, but it's not a great movie.

    Not very good but a cavalcade of familiar faces camping it up.
