Editorial Reviews

Palm Beach Post
Moving Pictures entranced me…. The book is full of delicious vingettes…
— Scott Eyman
Frank Capra
Budd Schulberg has written his greatest book.
Elia Kazan
Although Moving Pictures reads like a novel, I found myself saying, 'Yes, this is exactly how it was. . . . Now I know it from the inside!'
Arthur Schlesinger
A fascinating and significant contribution to American social history.
Garson Kanin
In Moving Pictures, Budd Schulberg relates the saga he was born to write, and he does it with brilliance, knowledge, feeling, wit, and some of the old love. Four cheers.
Irwin Shaw
A fascinating account of a fascinating part of our recent history, a book full of memorable anecdotes.
John Huston
Budd Schulberg is uniquely qualified to tell about Hollywood. . . . Moving Pictures is fascinating.
Melvyn Douglas
Filled with characters who ring absolutely true.
Myrna Loy
Unquestionably the authentic history of the creators of the motion picture—a fascinating book.
Palm Beach Post - Scott Eyman
Moving Pictures entranced me…. The book is full of delicious vingettes…
Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
A fascinating and significant contribution to American social history.
Library Journal
Schulberg's 1981 volume was part autobiography and part insider's guide to the early film industry. Schulberg is the son of film mogul B.P. Schulberg, and Budd was practically raised on the back lots. Schulberg eventually became a screen writer and is noted for penning On the Waterfront. However, he saw through the fantasy and the glamour of Hollywood and understood fully that it isn't called show business for nothing. For readers interested in Hollywood history, this Budd's for you.
