4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting insight to a shameful episode in Hollywoods past, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an engrossing book written it would appear by someone who is more of a historian than film buff.There are a number of issues that I would disagree with.In particular his categorising "Confessions Of A Nazi Spy" as an insignificant B picture.The point is that it had a budget of $650000 which was normal for an A picture at the time and it starred A lister Edward G Robinson,so it was by no means an insignificant picture.The author also has a tendancy too often to drift off into American politics.There is far too much about Gabriel Over The White House and about Huey Long.However despite these points I found this book to be a fascinating insight into a rather shameful episode in Hollywoods past.With the recent controversy over The Interview it shows that things don't change that much.

A lot of interesting information of Hollywood films from 1930 to beginning of war. If you like classic films and second world war history this is the Book for you.
