Radical Hollywood: The Untold Story Behind America's Favorite Movies

Radical Hollywood: The Untold Story Behind America's Favorite Movies Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Radical Hollywood is the first comprehensive history of the Hollywood Left. From the dawn of sound movies to the early 1950s, Paul Buhle and Dave Wagner trace the political and personal lives of the screenwriters, actors, directors, and producers on the Left and the often decisive impact of their work upon American film's Golden Age.

Full of rich anecdotes, biographical detail, and explorations of movies well-known, unjustly forgotten, and delightfully bizarre. Featuring an insert of rare film stills, Radical Hollywood relates the story-behind-the-story of films in such genres as crime, women?s films, family cinema, war, animation, and, particularly, film noir.

Review:

"This is one of the few complete and cohesive histories of the history of progressives in Hollywood...an important contribution to the literature of film and politics." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A highly readable, affectionate history that invites a new appreciation of our most distinctly American cultural creations." Z Magazine

Review:

"Spectacularly informative." National Review
