From the Inside Flap: "David Cook's Lost Illusions is an excellent account of Hollywood in the 1970s—a decade of social upheaval around the world and major transformation in the U.S. movie industry. His book overflows with useful data, and his lucid account of mainstream entertainment is nicely supplemented by the special chapters by other scholars: Douglas Gomery on exhibition, William Rothman on documentaries, and Robin Blaetz on the avant-garde."—James O. Naremore, author of More than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts
