About this Item

The endless parade of Paramount hits, ranging from the first full-length film made in Hollywood - The Squaw Man in 1913 - and the first winner of an Academy Award - Wings in 1928 - to the blockbusters of the Eighties, and the blazing galaxy of Paramount stars, from Mary Pickford to Meryl Streep, are fully documented in this indispensable book. Its lavish illustration, in themselves a collection of collector's items, are an irrestible added attraction. A heavy book, it will require extra postage. Bookseller Inventory # 000585

About this title


Provides a year-by-year description of major films by the Hollywood studio, and includes cast, credits, synopsis, and a list of the studio's Academy awards and nominations

From Library Journal:

Here is the latest in Crown's series of histories of the major Hollywood studios by the author of The MGM Story. Previous books provided a still from each film, along with a brief paragraph giving major credits, a synopsis, and often a critical word or two. Unfortunately, though all Paramount films are included, some lack a photo and have only a one-sentence description. Most of this book's intended audience would probably prefer a picture and more information on such minor worthwhile films as Buy Me That Town or The Mad Doctor (both 1941) instead of full-page photos from Saturday Night Fever or Raiders of the Lost Ark . Still, a necessity for special collections. John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Freehold, N.J.
