“Although Moving Pictures reads like a novel, I found myself saying, ‘Yes, this is exactly how it was. . . . Now I know it from the inside!’” —Elia Kazan

From his father , B.P., we get the early days of nickelodeons and the "movie" scene in New York. The birth of this form of entertainment is so well told by Schulberg. One particularly funny take- a fireman in Chicago decided to put a railway car on "rockers" so he could make the whole car shake and move as people watched "The Great Train Robbery". People would actually flee screaming from the rail car/theater !
So many great stories of how the industry was born.
Also a fascinating study in how an industry forms, coalesces , consolidates. When movies were new, there were no job descriptions, corporations, areas of responsibility. It was all being made up on the fly. And by the 1930's had congealed into the studio system.
What a great read . Filled with descriptions of early 20th century Hollywood - when Wiltshire blvd was all dirt and mud !
