I'm really looking forward to seeing both of these and really grateful to Angel Levine for what she has done to preserve some of the history of this game. Here's a little excerpt from the write-up:

"If there is a tragic irony to Levine’s story, it is that since she started filming, 31 of her interview subjects have passed away. When she told me that, I nearly collapsed, incredulous that so many greats could fade from the annals of billiards history. But, then I also smiled, grateful that someone like Angel Levine could be so passionate and committed to make sure their stories were documented and their tales will have the chance to inspire and educate future generations of pool players."

Thanks Angel.

Very glad to help Angel spread the word and to help promote the use of film and television to create excitement about billiards. She is an incredible woman.

It's like having national geographic on the scene....this production will go down in history and will be looked upon for generations in the future. I, for one, can't wait to see it! If there is anything I can do to be of assistance don't hesitate to ask.


Angel, I sent a pm. Wanted to make sure you didn't miss it. Thanx

I can't wait to buy a copy of the dvd when it's release. Sign me up!

This is really the sort of thing that pool and it's people deserve. I am very excited to see this!
