This review is from: The Men Who Made Hollywood: The Lives of the Great Movie Moguls (Hardcover)
This book achieved what I had wanted in giving a thumbnail sketch of the the Great Hollywood producers but is modestly written and in part is just a series of anecdotes...a great shame the author didn't try to draw some conclusions as to the reasons for success behind each Mogul and studio.I also expected a more in depth look at the financing of the studios and the films...similarly more about actor's contracts would have coloured the page.This book does nothing more than list than the studios and offer background without ever going further than that.An opportunity missed!!!!
