"This work introduces 50 important and influential Hollywood filmmakers from the period between the end of the silent era and the ascent of blockbuster film... The work will help readers better understand the key developments in Hollywood film history by identifying the collaborative relationships, the enduring legacy of the director's role, and the far-reaching influence of these talented individuals."
