9781432799304: 1930s Hollywood the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Vol. 1

30s Hollywood has been covered in great detail over the decades. In spite of this, 1930s- Hollywood The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Vol. 1 provides a concentrated review of what made the decade stand out as a winner. Vol. 1 focuses on Tinseltown's highs and lows throughout a turbulent period in America's history. On the backdrop that was the Great Depression, Hollywood was able to deliver the goods to a society that had just about given up. The "movies" were the only form of cheap entertainment that provided escapism for the millions of distressed and temporarily displaced people across the country. The volume also delves into the lives of two charismatic individuals whose talents, smarts, and overall appeal changed the history of the cinema forever. Plus the book compatibly covers a topic that remains as omnipresent as it was back then, Gossip! Inside, readers will get a quick case study on the origins of the "fan magazine" and how it evolved into the conglomerate of entertainment based publications, via on-line media outlets that we all are fortunate to have with us today. In modern times, many are still interested in showbiz and celebrities. It's the reason Hollywood is a billion dollar industry. Nonetheless, fascination with celebs began long ago during Hollywood's silent days. Vols. 2 and 3 completes the trilogy. Demand will bring these volumes to the marketplace expediently in the near future.
