Review:

"A tour de force... destined to become itself a classic in film studies and a magnificent introduction to the American cinema for a much wider audience... 'The Classical Hollywood Cinema' will surely arouse discussion and debate--how could it not, since no one who studies film at whatever level can henceforth ignore it." (American Film)

"This brilliant achievement will not soon be surpassed. It will be the foundation for all future research in the field..." (Choice)
