About this title


This award-winning examination of the American film industry has already been acclaimed as "A major achievement in film history, unlikely to be surpassed for many years" ("American Historical Review") and an "indispensable" set ("Film Quarterly") that "should become the standard reference work in every American library" ("Choice").

The 10-volume, illustrated series considers the film industry from its early roots in the 19th century right up to 1990. It examines the development of film and the film industry, analyzing both the genres, themes and technology that defined each decade and the political and economic background that gave rise to them. Each volume focuses on a separate decade, providing a narrative on the evolution of both the business and the art of film in America. Each volume is heavily illustrated, and ends with several indexes, notes, a bibliography and a variety of appendixes of top-grossing films, stars and Oscar winners, and more.

From the Back Cover:

This book, the first in a multivolume history of American film, looks at the initial twelve years of projected motion pictures and their aural accompaniment - from 1895 to the fall of 1907.
