Format: Hardcover
An entertaining, well written book that paints a picture of Hollywood from the early days until the dawn of the 1960s. Goodman enjoys story telling and the book is loaded with gossip of the time, from the reporters perspective. In many instances, names of columnists aren't mentioned which is unfortunate, so you'll have to take Goodman's word for it. The first chapter, about the author's fascinating 1947 interview with an aging, drunken, down-on-his-luck director D.W. Griffith is excellent (Griffith, an early genius of the motion picture art, invented much of modern cinematographic and editing techniques). It made me better appreciate how important both his "Birth of a Nation" and "Intolerance" turned out to be. Recommended for serious Hollywood historians. No doubt, Griffith would be disappointed at today's silver-screen offerings from Hollywood with their dreadful pale color, amateurish acting, and weak story telling.

Is there anyone out there who has? I found it tiresome in the extreme. And how come you can buy a hardcover copy for a buck but the paperback is $89? Gee, is somebody greedy because I don't think there is that kind of clamor for this book in any circles.
