We recently added An American Family: Anniversary Edition to the DBRL collection. This DVD is a two hour collection of memorable moments from the groundbreaking 1973 television series. The series has been getting a lot of attention this year with many PBS stations rebroadcasting the entire 12 hour series and HBO releasing the fictional movie Cinema Verite based on the series. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
On January 11, 1973, Americans stepped into the home of the Loud family of Santa Barbara, California. Chronicling the lives of its family members, the series made them household names. During the seven months that they lived in front of the camera, viewers watched dramatic life events unfold, including Pat asking for a separation from her husband Bill, and the bohemian New York lifestyle of their gay son, Lance. A 2-hour compilation of the most memorable and compelling moments of the series.
