Talking Pictures: With the People Who Made Them
Sylvia Shorris (au); Marion Abbott Bundy (au); Robert Altman (fr). Producers, screenwriters, gaffers, camera operators, key grips, soundmen, & scriptgirls -- with a list of behind-the-scenes movie makers, this book presents a firsthand view of Hollywood from the bottom up. These 40 interviews chronicle the Golden Age of Hollywood, when major movie studios produced some of America’s favorite films. By hearing firsthand about the machinations of moguls like Louis B. Mayer & Darryl Zanuck, we learn about how studios were run & how decisions about movies were made. We see how informal Hollywood was, how easy it was to get a job, how crucial a role nepotism played, & how careers were open to craftsmen & con men alike. “A tribute to the men & women responsible for captivating American audiences.” Photos.
