Pub. Date: 02/12/1993
Publisher: Gale Group
This series, 10 volumes in all when complete, will be the most thorough history of the business, technology, and art of the film industry, from its earliest roots 100 years ago, through the 1990's. Volume 6: Boom and Bust: The American Cinema in the 1940s provides both a comprehensive overview of the 1940s and a detailed look at its key individuals, events, and films. Topics include changes in the structure of the studio system, the shift to independent production, and discussion of the dominant stars, genres, and production trends throughout the period.
Undoubtedly and deservedly, the Scribner s volumes will become the standard reference works for the history of American film. -- (Film Quarterly on Vols. 1-3)
