This dazzling story of Hollywood during the decade of its greatest success is a social and cultural history of the movie capital's golden age. Its cast includes actors, writers, musicians and composers, producers and directors, racketeers and labor leaders, journalists and politicians in the turbulent decade from World War II to Korea.
Otto Friedrich (1929-1995) was a journalist and cultural historian. At one time editor of the New York Daily News and an essayist for Time magazine, he was the author of nine books, including Before the Deluge: Portrait of Berlin in the 1920s.
