[front hinge a bit damaged (but not split or separated), small red remainder dot on bottom edge of text block; the jacket shows a bit of surface wear, with some minor crinkling at the spine ends]. (B&W photographs) "A provocative, original, and richly entertaining group biography of the Jewish immigrants who founded and came to dominate the American film industry. These men -- Adolph Zukor, Carl Laemmle, Louis B. Mayer, the Warner brothers, Harry Cohn -- created an image of America out of their own idealism, a vision that proved so powerful that it ultimately came to shape the myths, values, traditions, and archetypes of America itself." ****NOTE that additional postage charges will be assessed for international shipping of this slightly heavier than average book; if this concerns you, please contact us for a shipping quote before placing your order.****
