There was drama, too, of course, in "King Kong" and, towering above all the rest, "Gone with the Wind". John Huston launched his great trilogy of Westerns (and John Wayne's stellar career) with "Stagecoach". On the other side of the Atlantic Alfred Hitchchock's fame grew with "The Lady Vanishes" and "The 39 Steps" and British upper lips were still stiff in "Sanders of the River" and numerous movies featuring Sherlock Holmes.

Review:

"Nourmand, who owns London's Reel Poster Gallery, and Marsh, a designer and art director, have compiled a lovely array of posters from movies of the 1930s. Among the book's treasures are full-page reproductions of the poster for the French Wizard of Oz, with a gallant Dorothy strutting toward the Emerald City with her cartoonish sidekicks behind her; the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup, done in an abstract wash of color, with Groucho's signature cigar clearly visible; and It Happened One Night, which shows Clark Gable gazing longingly at the stunning Claudette Colbert. An introductory essay serves as the book's only text; after that, Nourmand and Marsh organize the posters loosely by genre: romance, adventure, comedy, war. Although the book lacks a table of contents, a rear index lists the 110 films alphabetically." From Publishers Weekly "These are colorful, exciting images that will enhance any movie - lover's fascination with the major art form of the 20th century." The Bloomsbury Review"
