GRATEFUL FOR THIS DOCUMENTARY
Review by Dr. F. on 07/17/20 review stating GRATEFUL FOR THIS DOCUMENTARY
I just watched this documentary which was cut a little bit short of the actual documentary. It is a phenomenal documentary on an industry that has not been very well respected or truly appreciated for the talent that is behind the worker. If more people watch this documentary and feel proud about shining shoes we can make AMERICA SHINE AGAIN!!!

I am buying
Review by Shoe on 07/17/20 review stating I am buying
I watched the version that played on PBS, the version Im buying is longer. Ive been shining 11 years, its a very misunderstood profession, this gives us a voice and I hope when you watch it an understanding that its a profession and honorable, its interesting that we get to see that its done world wide by men and women. 5 stars!
