Then - the movie business boomed and a sleepy town called Hollywood hit the big time....
Now - with spectacular special effects, anything is possible...dinosaurs can come back to life and a pig can become a world famous star.
Go behind the scenes with this star-studded guide - meet anxious actors and dastardly directors, get animated by an A-Z of cartoon capers, and see if the groovy movie screen test gets you on the road to stardom.
If you want to be in the know, get 'The Knowledge'!'
If you have read Martin Oliver's other books, like 'Dead Dinosaurs' or 'Spilling the Beans on Blackbeard', you will appreciate how he puts knowledge across, in a humorous way. This book is no exception.
A colourful, humorous cover opens to 160 pages, split over 11 chapters:-
Groovy movie timeline
Groovy movie goofs and gaffs
Groovy movie making
Groovy movie going
Black and white illustrations/cartoons throughout.
The book is well-illustrated and includes some great anecdotes about the movie industry and how it operates.
A few minor criticisms. One of these is that the book focusses almost entirely on the US film industry and Hollywood with barely a mention of the British, European or Asian studios. Secondly, there is at least one error: Mae West and Busby Berkeley are certainly not the only movie figures to have given their names to other things.
Nevertheless, a great little book guaranteed to entertain and interest....
