as I've said many times before: Kevin Brownlow deserves an honorary Oscar for his work as a filmmaker, film preservationist, and film historian.... but of course a slug like Jerry Lewis wins (Hersholt humanitarian award) instead.

Here are all 13 episodes, beginning below--including that glorious theme music created by Carl Davis in the back of a taxi!:
