9781411635241: Hollywood Gold: Films of the Forties and Fifties (Hollywood Classics (Paperback))

Hollywood's Golden Era? I'd pick the period from 1939 through 1960. Here are 144 classic movies from this Golden Age of the Cinema, ranging (alphabetically) from "The Admiral Was a Lady" to "You Were Never Lovelier". Other films discussed in comprehensive detail (and with full background and release information) in this book include "The Adventures of Mark Twain", "The Chase", "Daisy Kenyon", "The Ghost of Frankenstein", "Humoresque", "In Old California", "Joan of Paris", "Letter from an Unknown Woman", "Magic Town", "Nightmare Alley", The Paradine Case", "Roughly Speaking", "The Scarlet Claw", "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and "You'll Never Get Rich".

Book Description Lulu.com. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 260 pages. John Howard Reid has written three books dealing specifically with American movies of the 1940s. The other two are titled Memorable Films of the Forties and Popular Pictures of the Hollywood 1940s. However, I consider this book to be the best of the three. Admittedly, Im a little prejudiced because I contributed a few items myself such as additional comments on that colorful Maria Montez vehicle, White Savage, on the Tyrone Power lend-lease to A Yank in the R. A. F. , on the Bing Crosby song-fest, Top o the Morning, on the Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn partnership in State of the Union, on the mediocre Charlie Chan, The Shanghai Chest, on Fritz Langs must-see thriller, Secret Beyond the Door, on Fred Astaires Second Chorus, on Michael Curtizs wonderful, absolutely delightful Rosalind Russell vehicle, Roughly Speaking, on that classic film noir, The Postman Always Rings Twice and the truly nightmarish Tyrone Power Nightmare Alley, on the Anatole Litvak-Henry Fonda The Long Night, and on what is possibly the best movie of the whole decade, namely Letter from an Unknown Woman. I also have some remarks on that Marilyn Monroe early venture in Ladies of the Chorus , on Bette Davis Beyond the Forest and Ernest Hemingways The Killers; plus five or six lesser titles such as Humphrey Bogarts The Big Shot and Val Lewtons The Leopard Man. While my contributions are comparatively few, the real meat of the book lies in the extensive cast and camera credits plus the background information and reviews provided on each of the 150 or so titles covered in the books 260 large-format pages. For easy reference, the movies are alphabetically arranged from The Admiral Was a Lady and The Adventures of Mark Twain through to You Were Never Lovelier. One of the most enjoyable of the many highlights youll find in all John Howard Reids books are the exclusive comments often provided by the stars and the directors themselves. Reid didnt waste his time in Hollywood. On You Were Never Lovelier, for instance, he provides brief comments by both Rita Hayworth and Fred Astaire. You wont find information like this anywhere else. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781411635241
