I believe the greatest Hollywood movies were made in the fabulous 40's. I also believe that the stars of those years were the biggest, greatest and impacted the viewing audiences unlike any other era. The stars and movies of our era DON'T COME CLOSE TO THE GREATS OF THE 40's. There is no comparison at all.

In the 40's every movie had a logical story and was free from phony, stupid, Special effects. All we get in today's movies are stupid Cartoon characters and horrific special effects which even disappoint children.

Give me the movies of the GREATEST MOVIE ERA the world has ever seen. That is what I want and sophisticated will surely agree with me.

The definitive book on 1940s Hollywood is probably Otto Friedrich's "City of Nets: A Portrait of Hollywood in the 1940's." But if you're looking for something to expand your library of books about Hollywood during its golden age, you might want to get this one. While it's not authoritative or exhaustive by any means, it's an alternative look at an endlessly fascinating time and place.City of Nets: A Portrait of Hollywood in the 1940's

By James R. Anderson on February 20, 2011
Format: Paperback
The best summary of a decade of Hollywood films you'll ever find. A decade that gave us classics from Rebecca and Double Indemnity to The Lady Eve and Notorious. We're left with the question: what happened to American films in the last 10-20 years, and WHY ? And what happened to America ?
