Read Review
Words are dream makers or destiny breakers, it’s your choice. Let your life count by making your words count, take the “journey of words” today.

Bestselling author and global entrepreneur Evan Money traveled the United States for over a year interviewing the greatest thought leaders, speakers, authors and artists of our time. His goal was to discover the true impact of the spoken word; what he discovered was truly groundbreaking.

Imagine sitting with Joel Osteen and learning the most impacting words ever spoken to him or with scholars and analyzing the true force of Martian Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Words of Art is an individual journey for each viewer.

Tremendously content rich, this film has something for every age and every demographic from the icons of personal growth. The more times you watch this film, the more you will discover and grow personally.

30. How the West Was Won

by: Warner Home Video
Release date: Sep 12, 2000
Run Time: 155 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
The first feature film to be photographed and projected in the panoramic three-camera Cinerama process, this epic Western is almost as expansive as the West itself, chronicling a pioneering family’s triumphs and tragedies in numerous episodes spanning three generations and a half century of westward movement. Divided into five segments directed by veteran Hollywood filmmakers Henry Hathaway, George Marshall, and the legendary John Ford (and including uncredited sequences directed by Richard Thorpe), the film was one of the most ambitious ever made by the venerable MGM studio. Its stellar cast reads like a virtual who’s who of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Debbie Reynolds plays a sturdy survivor of many pioneering dangers, and the eventual widow of a gambler (Gregory Peck), who is later reunited with her nephew (George Peppard), a Civil War veteran and cavalryman who heads for San Francisco as the transcontinental railroad is being built. Many more characters and stories are woven throughout this epic film, which is dramatically uneven but totally engrossing with its stunning vistas and countless outdoor locations in Illinois, Kentucky, South Dakota, Monument Valley in Arizona, California, Colorado, and elsewhere. “–Jeff Shannon”

34. Buena Vista Social Club [VHS]

by: Live / Artisan
Release date: Dec 14, 1999
Run Time: 105 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
In 1996, composer, producer, and guitar legend Ry Cooder entered Egrem Studios in Havana with the forgotten greats of Cuban music, many of them in their 60s and 70s, some of them long since retired. The resulting album, Buena Vista Social Club, became a Grammy-winning international bestseller. When Cooder returned to Havana in 1998 to record a solo album by 72-year-old vocalist Ibrahim Ferrer, filmmaker Wim Wenders was on hand to document the occasion. Wenders splits the film between portraits of the performers, who tell their stories directly to the camera as they wander the streets and neighborhoods of Havana, and a celebration of the music heard in performance scenes in the studio, in their first concert in Amsterdam, and in their second and final concert at Carnegie Hall. The songs are too often cut short in this fashion, but Buena Vista Social Club is not a concert film. Wenders weaves the artist biographies with a glimpse of modern Cuba remembering its past, capturing a lost culture in music that is suddenly, unexpectedly revived for audiences in Havana and around the world. Wenders makes his presence practically invisible, as if his directorial flourishes or off-screen narration might deflect attention from the artists, who do a fine job of telling their own stories through interviews and music. It’s a loving portrait of a master class in Cuban music, with a vital cast of aging performers whose energy and passion belie their years. –Sean Axmaker

Featuring a “big stellar cast” (Variety), including Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Laurence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, Robert Shaw, Susannah York and Edward Fox, Battle of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war. But when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, it may well have altered the course of history!

40. Breaking Through the Clouds: The First Women’s National Air Derby

by: Archetypal Images
Release date: Jan 12, 2019
Run Time: 109 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
Breaking Through the Clouds: The First Women’s National Air Derby is the inspiring true story of 20 female pilots, including Amelia Earhart, who defied convention by taking to the skies and racing across America’s in 1929. Facing cultural stereotypes, mechanical failures, threats of sabotage, navigational challenges and endless chicken dinners, the women were pioneering legends in aviation.

This award-winning documentary is expertly researched, beautifully shot and filled with carefully restored footage of the derby, some of which has not been seen in over 80 years. Aerial recreations with brightly colored planes similar to what the women flew in the derby help put the viewer in the pilot’s seat while interviews with family members, aviation experts and aviation legends such as Elinor Smith Sullivan and Patty Wagstaff enhance the story.

Breaking Through the Clouds: The First Women’s National Air Derby is perfect for anyone who has cheered on the underdog or those looking for an example on how to overcome obstacles and follow one’s own passion.

Breaking Through The Clouds: The First Women’s National Air Derby was presented with the National Aviation Hall of Fame’s prestigious Comb Gates Award, Telly and TIVA top honors, winner of multiple film festivals as well as the recipient of a top content and top research award.

This DVD is being promoted by the family of the late Ron Wyatt. Thank you for your support!

This documentary features people in their 90s and 100s who are living extraordinary and passionate lives. Filmmaker Susan Polis Schutz has interviewed some of the most incredible people you can imagine – people who aren’t aware of chronological age at all but live as though the future and youth spring eternal. Through these interviews, she discovered ten characteristics that are the key to people living a fulfilling life at any age. We meet and fall in love with a wide range of engaging characters. For starters: Nola Ochs receives her master’s degree just three months shy of her 99th birthday. Folk singer Pete Seeger, 90, uses his music to change the world. Fan Benno-Caris runs for city council in Addison, Texas, at the age of 91. Katie Brown, 91, bakes and serves cinnamon rolls five days a week. Marlow Cowan, 91, and his wife Frances have over 7 million views on YouTube.com playing the piano in the lobby of Mayo Clinic. Annell and Dr. Ernest Rogers, both nonagenarians, recently got married in a formal church wedding. There is lovely-hearted Leola Dillard, 97, a charity organizer in Yazoo City, Mississippi. John Finn, nearly 100, is the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor for heroism during Pearl Harbor. Laura Simon, 103, is an artist/author working on her second book about her life. Granny D (Doris Haddock), age 100, is a feisty political activist who marches across the country. Les Lieber, age 96, plays his saxophone at Jazz at Noon every Friday in New York City. Don Pellmann, 94, is a Senior Olympics Gold Medal winner, and we see him easily doing the pole vault. Harry Rakoff, 94, saunters along the Coney Island Boardwalk, taking a break from his high-paced job driving a taxi in the heart of New York City. We sit at their feet for words of advice, witnessing how they forgot to grow old and are always curious to see what’s going to happen next. Putting it succinctly, “You can drive yourself nuts worrying about things you can’t do anything about. Instead you should be exhilarated about living every day passionately.” Over 90 and Loving It will inspire people across the age spectrum. We all need heroes and heroines to emulate and this film will reach the hearts and minds of all of us who want to have a full life.
