    "Remembering Edward Weston" video, don't know if it's available on DVD
    (Brief footage of Cole, Brett and Charis Wilson)

    "Brilliant Fever" video made in Pittsburgh by Kenneth Love about W. Eugene Smith's Pittsburgh project.

    "The Adventure of Photography" - 2 DVD set, I believe originally done on French TV. Lots of historical nuggets, and some errors.

    "90 degrees South" - DVD made of Herbert Ponting's presentation of his still and moving (!) pictures from the 1911 Scott expedition to Antartica.

    "Dorothea Lange: A Visual Life" - apparently video only

    ....and I'm sure there are plenty of others. Of these, my favorites are "A Visual Life" and "Photography Made Difficult"....
    ...and Stieglitz at PBS

    I was in Oklahoma for two weeks on business. Just got off the plane. I was pretty much trapped at a training session for the USPS. No time for cameras or visiting museums. Maybe next time I will be able to see it. Thanks for the information.

    The wealth of images on the DVD alone is worth the price. The video portion I wish had less just driving around; but maybe that was intended in order to show his methods of subject matter selection. Another good video is that of his father filmed by Willard Van Dyke in 1948 for USIA.

    I'm have to disagree to the last comment. I found Van Dykes "The Photographer" to be very disappointing, especially since I paid $100 for it from the NTIS NAC before someone started selling home copies of it for $20. Edward doesnt even utter a word, its more of a cold war propaganda film than an Edward Weston film. IMHO, of course. Even at $20 I would have been disapointed. I would recommend "remembering Edward Weston" over that one.

    My copy arrived, and it's a neat thing. Brett Weston is a little mumbly, and the sound is a little distorted, so it helps to listen on headphones rather than with the typical TV speaker, but it's great to watch him at work, particularly in the few darkroom snippets, and it's worth it for the images.

    I was amazed to note that Brett has a slight NEW ENGLAND accent.

    Black finger-nail polish?

    I played the clip from the DVD and I swear Weston's finger nails were BLACK! Here in Hollywood, we see a lot of that nowadays but I can't imagine a man wearing finger nail polish way back when that DVD footage was shot. Are my eyes deceiving me or is this a Halloween trick?

    That's the Amidol stains. I thought the same thing years ago when I saw Ansel Adams' portrait of Edward Weston for the first time.

    You'll notice that it's only the nails on ONE hand. Stained from having his hand in a tray of developer.
