This social and cultural history of Hollywood during its golden age is "...a must for movie buffs and a rewarding read." --Publishers Weekly

This is an excellent book loaded with facts and vignettes of the Hollywood movie industry during the 1940's and 50's. It takes you from the "Golden Age" right through to the start of the HUAC hearings and how television impacted the film industry. I found this book by accident and I can't say enough about what an excellent a read it is. If you're a fan of history and of the film industry this slice of Americana will provide insights into a world that was managed by press people and moguls who ruled like emperors over other people's lives.Was this review helpful?

This is a wonderfully readable and interesting account of Hollywood in the 1940's. It combines stories of stars, films and displaced intellectuals to create a great feel for the time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
