HEMINGWAY – KEN BURNS

Looking forward to the Ken Burns documentary on Ernest Hemingway airing on PBS April 5-7. If it’s half as good as Burns’ Civil War series, it should be a classic.

Featuring original manuscripts and rare archival photos and films, the series promises new insights into Hemingway’s creative process behind such masterpieces as A Farewell to Arms and the short stories “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” and (my favorite!) “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber.” With voice-overs by Jeff Daniels, Meryl Streep, Keri Russell, Patricia Clarkson, and Mary-Louise Parker, viewers can look forward to a series comparable to Burns’ other masterpieces.

Beginning April 5, I’ll be glued in front of the TV with mojitos at hand.

  1. Burns knocks out series after series. An amazing work ethic. His last one was about country music, I think. I watched an episode and a half of it. Found his presentation pretty tedious and predictable, to tell you the truth. Probably Iโ€™m in the minority about that.
