9781893224322: The Antic Life and Times of Jack Warner (Hollywood Classics)

Warner, whose career began in the family grocery store in Youngstown, Ohio, was without a doubt one of the most powerful figures in America. He not only influenced film taste, but also politics generally, with his socially conscious films.A fascinatingly complex man, Warner was an immigrant who told jokes in the FDR White House, a jester who treated his wife, son and mistress cruelly, and a family man who built an empire with his brother who ultimately double crossed him.

Jack Warner was HOLLYWOOD, made HOLLYWOOD, and this story tells how and why. A must read for Hollywood aficianados.
