Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

Studs Terkel, himself an octogenarian, has personally interviewed senior citizens ranging from their early 70’s to almost 100 years of age. In his introduction, Terkel addresses how priceless our elderly citizens and their personal experiences are to our country’s heritage. Shirley Venard does a remarkable job interpreting each woman’s personal account. Her performances personify their wit, intelligence, fortitude, weariness, spirit and grand sense of humor. Allen Hamilton is a virtual chameleon as he reenacts a wide variety of male personal histories. He adds all the ingredients necessary to portray strong-willed, intelligent men from all walks of life, who have been seasoned by life’s unexpected twists and turns.
