9780028604299: Movie Time: Chronology of Hollywood and the Movie Industry from Its Beginning to the Present

This compendium of bite-sized morsels of information about Hollywood and the film industry in a timetable format makes it easy and fun to browse or to track information month to month, year to year. From Theda Bara to Demi Moore and from "The Birth of a Nation" to "Reservoir Dogs," Movie Time covers it all: the personalities; the movies; the industry; births, deaths, marriages, and divorces. Each year starts with a one-page "snapshot" including a summary highlighting the year, lists of major awards and trends, little-known facts, and a timeline. Following this are entries for the year arranged chronologically in four categories, prepared with period photos and quotes.

From the Author:

Movie Time is a reference book and a page-turner
I wrote this book with the idea that it would be useful for looking up information and it would read like a novel. I scanned Daily Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, issue by issue. They are not indexed anywhere, so much of the information in Movie Time appears here and nowhere else. If you love movies, I think you will find it hard to put this book down once you dip into it. You can write to me with your comments about the book at gbrown@interport.net. Hope you enjoy it!
