From the Back Cover:

'America in the Movies is a brilliant romp through the fertile field of Hollywood's vision of America in the 1940s and 50s. With geniality and insight, Michael Wood exposes the tangle of fantasy and reality in the waning days of the studio system.' -- Leo Braudy, University of Southern California

Review:

"An almost unheard of combination of virtues for a movie book -- lucid, well-informed, and obviously written in high spirits -- and anyone interested in the subject will want to look at it for himself." -- New York Times Book Review
