9780810819498: The First Tycoons

MacCann has shaped from 28 different memoirs and histories a cumulative story of the conflicts and achievements of the founders of the great movie studios. Carl Laemmle, Marcus Loew, William Fox, Samuel Goldwyn, Jesse Lasky, and Adolph Zukor are the stars of this history, some of them speaking in their own voices, others assessed by film historians. Zukor (described by Ramsaye as "inwardly driven by Napoleonic ambition") becomes the central figure of the era.

A source book for students and teachers and a treasure for general readers and classic film fans.

Skillfully put together to form a coherent picture... sufficient human interest to hold the attention of any keen student of cinematic history. (Film Review Annual)

Excellent and insightful introduction...Some of the material MacCann has collected here is just wonderful....Works splendidly as a basic source book for students....Provides great insight into what used to be called `the romance of business'... (Film Quarterly)

An extremely valuable source book for teachers and students of the motion picture industry...a wealth of Hollywood history for film fans and buffs. (Movie Collector's World)
