Leonard Maltin's reputation as one of the world's most popular authorities on the history of film is well known. Equally well known is his affection for the classic era of the movies. In his quarterly subscription-only newsletter Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy, Maltin-through personal remembrances as well as first-hand interviews with the actors, writers, directors, and performers of the Golden Age-chronicles the history of a bygone magical era. Available here for the first time to the millions of viewers and readers who turn to Maltin year after year for his insights on movies and Hollywood is a collection of the best articles from his newsletter.
It's all here: The imaginative schemes Hollywood dreamed up to "ballyhoo" its latest pictures... the skewed vision of silent movies that the film industry perpetrated on the public once talkies came along... the longtime marriage of music and movies... and the careers of Hollywood's unsung heroes, on both sides of the camera, who share amazing and amusing stories you've never read before. Illustrated with rare photographs, one-sheet movie posters, advertising art, and personal memorabilia from the stars themselves, this book will capture the attention of old-time movie fans and casual readers alike.
