Secrets of the Occult: What is the Occult?

Bonus feature from the DVD, RT 28:31.

Secrets of the Occult could have easily been a three or four hour project. Instead of opting for comprehensiveness, this production aims to capture the quick, sporadic interest of a casual viewing. In that respect, it achieves a vast amount within a condensed time frame. This documentary is an inclusive, engaging expositional synopsis of alternative thought and practice.

Rock Family Trees: The Fleetwood Mac Story

Fleetwood Mac are a British/American rock band formed in 1967 which have experienced a high turnover of personnel and varied levels of success. From the band's inception through the end of 1974, no incarnation of Fleetwood Mac lasted as long as two years.

The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green, and from 1975 to 1987, with more pop-orientation, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

Buster Keaton: The Playhouse

A 1921 film written and directed by and starring Buster Keaton. The movie runs for 22 minutes, and is most famous for its opening sequence in which Keaton plays every role.

The film is set up as a series of humorous tricks on the audience, with constant doubling, and in which things are rarely what they at first seem to be. It opens with Keaton attending a variety show. In this first sequence, Keaton plays the conductor of the orchestra, every member of the orchestra, the actors, the dancers, the stagehands, the minstrels, and every member of the audience, male and female. This elaborate trick-photography sequence turns out to be a dream when Joe Roberts rouses Keaton from bed. The bedroom then turns out to be not a bedroom, but a set on a stage.
