A very pretty puff piece and little more,
This review is from: You Must Remember This: The Warner Bros. Story (Hardcover)
YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS certainly fulfills its role as a coffee table book: there are a ton of photos and many of them are very interesting. The poster art and lobby stills are gorgeous, and the quality is top-notch. However, if you want to sit down and read it from cover to cover (as I did) you'll be very disappointed. The book begins as a legitimate "biography" of Warner Brothers, telling the story of the studio's creation. It quickly turns into a hagiography, however, lionizing the greatness of the studio and forgetting to tell any remotely negative stories. Basically, the book feels like The History of Warner Brothers as written by Warner Brothers.
