Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot

Depending on your calculations, 2013 is the 90th anniversary of Warner Bros. studios. (Remember, Warner Bros. themsleves put out a 25th anniversary short in 1930.) As part of that celebration, a documentary called Tales from the Warner Bros. lot was made, and that is running twice on TCM, at 7:00 PM tonight, and again at 9:00 AM tomorrow.

The thing is, I'm not certain exactly what we're getting. TCM is fitting this documentary into a one-hour time slot, with the schedule page showing a running time of 53 minutes, but the page you get when you click on the link giving almost no information whatosever. IMDb, on the other hand, lists a documentary under the same title that runs 106 minutes, albeit with no user reviews.

I'm always up for a Hollywood history documentary, however, as long as it's good.
