The whole equation : a history of Hollywood by David Thomson( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in Polish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the Hollywood film industry explores the ways in which movies, both shape and are shaped by American culture, discusses the contributions of film pioneers, and profiles Hollywood's leading citizens. A magnificent history of Hollywood from the invention of film to the present day, by the everywhere acclaimed David Thomson, who has established himself as the greatest living film critic and historian, the Atlantic Monthly, irreplaceable, the New York Times, and simply the best writer about the movies, San Francisco Chronicle. Now we have his master work, the Whole Equation, which, in his own words, embraces the murder and the majesty, the business statistics and millions of us being moved, the art and the awfulness. It accommodates the artistic careers, the lives of the pirates, the ebb and flow of business, the sociological impact in short, the wonder in the dark, the calculation in the offices, and the staggering impact on America of moving pictures, which is also the thunderous artillery of America unleashed on the world. Thomson tells us how D.W. Griffith and Charlie Chaplin created the first movies of mass appeal. He writes about Louis B. Mayer, who understood the whole equation and reaped the profits. He shows us how David O. Selznick exemplified the vanity and passion that gets memorable movies made; how the movies, offering a sense of common experience, helped Americans through the difficult years of the 1930s and '40s; how and why the quest for the blockbuster changed the industry. He examines the films of Capra, Wilder, Hitchcock, and Spielberg; of Gable, Cagney, Monroe, Crawford, Brando, Bogart, Nicholson, and Kidman; of Irving Thalberg, Lew Wasserman, Harvey Weinstein and scores more. He considers noir films, the blacklist, agents, method acting. He tells us the stories behind the Godfather, Chinatown, and Jaws. And he follows the money, a trip essential to understanding Hollywood at its most thrilling and most disappointing. David Thomson has given us a one volume history of Hollywood that is as well one of the most brilliant, most insightful, entertaining, and illuminating books ever written on American film

2 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in Polish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Evans's biography of Aristotle Onassis, <Ari</, metwith great acclaim when it was published in 1986. Ariprovided the world with an unprecedented glimpse of theGreek shipping magnate's orbit of dizzying wealth, twistedintrigues, and questionable mores. Not long after the bookappeared, however, Onassis's daughter Christina and hislongtime business partner Yannis Georgakis hinted toevans that he had missed the "real story" -- one that provedOnassis's intrigues had deadly results. "I must begin,"Georgakis said, "with the premise that, for Onassis, BobbyKennedy was unfinished business from way back..."</ His words launched Evans into the heart of a story thattightly bound Onassis not to Jackie's first husband, but tohis ambitious younger brother Bobby. A bitter rivalryemerged between Bobby and Ari long before Onassis andJackie had even met. <Nemesis</ reveals the tangled thread ofevents that linked two of the world's most powerful men intheir intense hatred for one another and uncovers thesurprising role played by the woman they both loved. Theirpower struggle unfolds against a heady backdrop ofinternational intrigue: Bobby Kennedy's discovery of theGreek shipping magnate's shady dealings, which led him tobar Onassis from trade with the United States; Onassis'sattempt to control much of Saudi Arabia's oil; Onassis'suntimely love affair with Jackie's married sister LeeRadziwill; and his bold invitation to First Lady Jackie tojoin him on his yacht -- without the president. Just as theself-made Greek tycoon gloried in the chance to stir thewrath of the Kennedys, they struggled unsuccessfully tobreak his spell over the woman who held the key to all oftheir futures. After Jack's death, Bobby became ever closerto Camelot's holy widow, and fought to keep her frommarrying his sworn rival. But Onassis rarely failed to getwhat he wanted, and Jackie became his wife shortly afterBobby was killed.</ Through extensive interviews with the closest friends,lovers, and relatives of Onassis and the Kennedys, longtimejournalist Evans has uncovered the shocking culmination ofthe Kennedy-Onassis-Kennedy love triangle: AristotleOnassis was at the heart of the plot to kill Bobby Kennedy.Meticulously tracing Onassis's connections in the world ofterrorism, <Nemesis</ presents compelling evidence that hefinanced the assassination -- including a startling confessionthat has gone unreported for nearly three decades. Alongthe way, this groundbreaking work also daringly paintsthese international icons in all of their true colors. FromEvans's deeply nuanced portraits of the charismatic Greekshipping magnate and his acquisitive iconic bride to hisprobing and revelatory look into the events that shaped anera, <Nemesis</ is a work that will not be soon forgotten.</
