About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Life and Adventures of Carl Laemmle.

Description:

Fair. Apparently formerly owned by an educational institution with a stamp on rear pastedown and ink private owner gift notice and partial stamp and removed library bookplate(?) on front endpaper leaving some abrasions. Some widening of separation between preliminary page and half-title page but hinges are sound. Cloth has minor edge wear and some dulling along spine. NO dust jacket. 288 pages. Paper slightly age-darkening as would be expected. Illustrated with some b&w photos. Biography of the head of Universal Pictures, the studio that produced Stroheim's FOOLISH WIVES, Lon Chaney Srs. PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, Paul Leni's CAT AND THE CANARY, THE MAN WHO LAUGHED, and many other silent film classics. This volume was published just as the talkie era was coming into its own, with Universal continuing to make a mark in the horror genre with DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN, although this biography is focused almost entirely on Laemmle's personal life and his participation in the development of the film industry in the silent era.

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1931 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. 346 pages.
