From "The Saturday Evening Post" to "Kellogg's Corn Flakes" - If ever there was one American artist whose work completely epitomized the sentimental and idealistic innocence of family values as they were perceived in yesterday's America, then that artist would have to be, none other than, Norman Rockwell.

As an artist/illustrator - Throughout his 5-decade career, Rockwell produced more than 4000 works. Almost right from the start his paintings and their subject matter struck a nostalgic chord with the American public and, as a result, his popularity soared all across that nation (and, even beyond).

Through stills, archival film-clips and interviews with historians, family members and art critics - This well-researched celebrity-documentary (from the "American Masters" series) delivers a professional, in-depth look at Norman Rockwell, his life, and his paintings.

*Note* - In 1978 (at the age of 84), Norman Rockwell died from "natural" causes.

What a great documentary about Norman Rockwell. I loved it. I do like his work, there's something about his work that I really like.
