"I think this is a fine volume, one that maintains the high quality of other volumes in the series while making major contributions in its own right. . .a strong, well-argued and well-structured study."--Dana Polan, University of Southern California
"Monaco is especially good at explaining economic and technical trends during the decade. He clearly and succinctly charts the major changes in modes of film exhibition, and he provides helpful accounts of new developments in cameras, lenses, color stock, sound recording, etc., in all cases showing how such things influenced film style. One feature of his book I particularly liked is the detailed attention he gives to the major stars of the decade, and to the groundbreaking directors and films."--James Naremore, author of "More than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts"
