Spyros P. Skouras (1893-1971) was the most influential Greek immigrant in American history and one of America’s preeminent citizens during the Cold War period. In an astonishing sixty-year career, he shaped two industries (film and shipping), turned Twentieth Century-Fox into a global film leader, saved Hollywood by introducing CinemaScope, masterminded Century City in Los Angeles, and, not least, helped save millions of Greeks from starvation and disease during World War II. For the first time his story is being told in his own words and in full detail. Coinciding with Skouras' 120th birth anniversary, this book is a valuable contribution to American and Greek Diaspora historiography that will inspire younger generations to pursue the intertwined ideals of business excellence and public service. http://www.stanford.edu/~ichriss/Skouras.htm "The important and timely story of Spyros P. Skouras, in the hands of a researcher with Dr. Chrissochoidis' background, passion and experience, has the potential to produce something that I believe will resonate deeply not just with Greek-Americans but with all Americans." Linda P.B. Katehi, Chancellor, University of California, Davis.
