The movie was great, a little cheesy with some other actors. My teenage daughter objected to the sad tone taken with the demise of tobacco, but the point was how tobacco's rise and fall led to the rise of Durham, and fall unless an alternative was found (medicine, they say). Very interesting lesson in a slice of economic history, and tobacco's role in advertising most of all. We did not tour the buildings, opting instead for a self-tour which had very limited value. Everything smelled like tobacco, not a good thing.
