Description

"Meticulously researched and richly detailed, this superb book documents film and, later, television production in the New York City area during the first half of the twentieth century. Koszarski covers every imaginable aspect of moving-image production of the East Coast during this period. The depth of the research is astounding. Koszarski brings to life a period when much of television, and even theatrical films, were centered in Manhattan to take advantage of the proximity of Broadway. A remarkable accomplishment and an indispensable, accessible guide to the period. Essential."-Choice "Koszarski's book is both industrial saga and film-buff opium den: Not only does he include all aspects of film production in New York, but also television. The author also writes with such fire and detail about all these films that you quickly forget most of them are either lost, incomplete, or difficult to see at best."-Philippe Garnier, LA Weekly "Marvelous, invaluable, breathtaking film history."-Directors Guild Quarterly
