Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Ever since its debut in the Saturday Evening Post in 1919, MERTON OF THE MOVIES has delighted book and film lovers alike and is considered one of the first real Hollywood novels. Filled with lighthearted film parodies, glimpses into a bygone Hollywood era, and a likable main character, it is easy to understand why MERTON OF THE MOVIES inspired an often-revived Broadway play, several films, and a brand new radio play. It was included in Lawrence Clark Powell's famous list of thirty California classics.

Synopsis:

This is one of the original books on life in Hollywood in the early days of moviemaking in the Twenties. It set the style for many movies to follow and was made and remade several times. Lawrence Clark Powell listed it as one of the thirty California classics.
