3.0 out of 5 stars Postwar Hollywood Survey
A vast and interesting survey of the ways in which the landscape of Post WWII American Cinema had altered. This book was a required text for a film class I took on films of the 1960's and 70's, which actually made for an interesting comparison how film had transformed even past the Postwar period.

This review is from: Postwar Hollywood: 1946-1962 (Paperback)
