About this title

Synopsis:

Explores the history of the Hollywood movie industry as a whole, provides eight in-depth portraits of leading studios and concludes with a reference section packed with facts and figures, charts and diagrams and hundreds of stills and production shots.

Book Description:

This fully revised and updated edition of an award-winning classic traces the history of Hollywood from the silent era to the present day. The Hollywood Story comprehensively covers every aspect of movie-making in America, taking in nickelodeans, drive-ins and multiplexes; the transition from silent to sound, black and white to color; the relationships of producers, directors, stars and technicians; and the function and output of the studios - their major hits and most expensive flops.

Praise for the first edition:

'The Hollywood Story is a must for the movie buff... Never has so much information been compiled into one, easy to read, accessible volume.'

Bob Dorian, American Movie Classics

'A book that more than lives up to its claims... For all those unable to store sixty years of Variety under the bed, Mr Finler has performed an invaluable service.

The Economist
