I LOVED this book! Filled with cynical, humourous yet accurate commentary into the individual style and approach of each major Hollywood studio up to the 1950s.
Although written in a highly conversational tone (what books aren't these days?), Mordden considers his reader to be an active film viewer (i.e. "I hear murmurs in the house -- isn't 'Lady in the Dark' a musical? Not after Paramount got hold of it.").
Enjoyed this book so much that I later purchased it! This belongs on the bookshelves of all classic film lovers.
A book full of facts and pictures of interest, but so badly organized as to be rendered pretty much useless to me.
