Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

From its inception, the Canadian film industry has been dominated by Americans. Canadians such as Mary Pickford, John Huston, Marie Dressler, and Norma Shearer left for Hollywood. The government could not mandate that a percentage of films be Canadian-made, the French-language films made in Quebec had limited releases, and only the short films produced by the National Film Board achieved wide recognition. Pratley, Ontario Film Institute director, provides copious details about Canadian cinema up to 1984 and complete credits of films from 1945 to 1984. A lavish book for cinema collections.
