Inside Warner Bros. (1935-1951)( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few books offer as direct and intimate a portrait of the tumult, trauma, and glory of making movies as this fascinating collection. Culled from Warner Bros.'s voluminous files, these revealing memos, letters, and production reports recapture the conception, the second thoughts, the inspirations, doubts, conflicts, and triumphs that produced some of the most popular films ever made: Casablanca, Jezebel, Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Maltese Falcon, A Streetcar Named Desire, Dark Victory, Mildred Pierce, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Now, Voyager, The Big Sleep, Key Largo, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and many, many more. It is a story as tempestuous as its stars: laced with Jack L. Warner's caustic and canny comments on everything from director Michael Curtiz's camera angles to Joan Blondell's revealing gowns, Bette Davis's ferocious fights about her career, the blossoming romance of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Errol Flynn's complaints about the sorry state of his wig, Ronald Reagan's dismay with the studio, George Raft's brawl with Edward G. Robinson, and on and on. Alongside the moments of high tragedy and low comedy, there is the story of very talented people doing their utmost to make the best movies they can. Whether it's the prodding and encouragement of executive producers like Hal Wallis and Darryl Zanuck, the passion and persistence of directors like John Huston, Raoul Walsh, and Elia Kazan, or simply the bright ideas and dim views of screenwriters, supervisors, and makeup men, everyone has his or her say in this panoramic picture of a major studio in its heyday. A monumental slice of film history, a bit of soap opera combined with the drama of high finance, and a gold mine of behind-the-scenes intrigue, Inside Warner Bros. offers rich fare for anyone interested in the movies of Hollywood's Golden Age, and an irresistible look at the legendary and colorful people who created them."--Dust jacket

Rudy Behlmer, whose now classic Memo from David O. Selznick was called "the most revealing, penetrating book on filmmaking I know" by director King Vidor, performs the same service for Zanuck in this first-time-ever collection of his personal correspondence to the directors, writers, actors, technicians, and studio executives who made the period magical. Here is a from-the-top, at-the-moment, insider's look at the myriad elements that went into the production of a feature film during the colorful days of the old studio system, from the man who pulled it all together. And, like all important histories, Memo from Darryl F. Zanuck is equally revealing about the way things work today

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the most outstanding films produced by M-G-M during the late 1920s and 1930s were directed by the colorful W.S.

On White Shadows Van Dyke spent four months in 1927-1928 filming in Tahiti, first in collaboration with the noted documentarian Robert Flaherty and then as the sole director.
