Format: Paperback
Year's ago, this book was commonly seen in stores. It never really impressed me. Then, one Christmas, a cousin gifted it to me. I figured, "Oh, well. It's worth a look, I guess." Eventually, I found myself more and more entrenched in this text, as the years went by, and I dug deeper into film history(a favorite subject). If you're a film historian of any kind, this book will be a great addition to your film guide collection. It covers the business itself, the movies-big and small-that were released in a given year(often including where they premiered and in what month), the personalities, births and deaths, marriages, and the top box office: films and actors both. For instance, in 1939(referred to as "the year of the movie"): war breaks out in Europe; HUAC begins its search for commies in Hollywood; Ann Sheridan is nicknamed the "Oomph" girl; Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper start their feud; "Stagecoach" revives the A western picture; average ticket price is 23 cents; top males at the box office are Mickey Rooney, Tyrone Power, and Spencer Tracy, respectively; top females are Shirley Temple, Bette Davis, and Alice Faye; worst actor, per the Harvard Lampoon, is Tyrone Power; George Burns and Jack Benny are up on charges of smuggling; Paramount decides not to renew Betty Grable's contract; et al.

This is a great book for Hollywood-o-philes who are seeking to get an overall chronology of what-happened-when, who-won-what-awards, who-were-the-top-stars-and-which-were-the-top-movies through out Hollywood's entire history. It's the sort of book you can look up one fact and two hours later realise that half the afternoon has gone. This book is a great addition to the reference lobrary of any Hollywood movies fan.
