9780762451562: Majestic Hollywood: The Greatest Films of 1939

1939 was a watershed year. The Great Depression was barely over; economics, politics, and culture braced for war. There was a lull before the storm and Hollywood, as if expecting to be judged by posterity, produced a portfolio of masterpieces. No year before or since has yielded so many beloved works of cinematic art: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Gunga Din, Only Angels Have Wings, Destry Rides Again, Beau Geste, Wuthering Heights, The Wizard of Oz, Stagecoach, Ninotchka, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Dark Victory, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Women, and of course, Gone With the Wind.

Majestic Hollywood showcases fifty films from this landmark year, with insightful text on the cultural significance of each movie and entertaining plot descriptions. Also included are stories from the legendary artists who made the films: directors William Wellman and John Ford; cinematographers Arthur Miller and Lee Garmes; actors Judy Garland, Rosalind Russell, Ray Milland, Sir Laurence Olivier, and Olivia de Havilland.

This world of entertainment is illustrated by rarely seen images. Made during the most glamorous era in movie history, whether scene stills, behind-the-scenes candids, portraits, or poster art, the photos are as distinctive, evocative, and powerful as the films they were meant to publicize. Presenting the best of these images and the stories behind them, this book is a cavalcade of unforgettable films from 1939: Hollywood's Greatest Year.

He has lectured at USC, UCLA, Lincoln Center, and Universal Studios.

From Booklist:

As shown by these 50 films, 1939 was a landmark year in movie making. Arranged chronologically by release date, titles range from the well known (including The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind) to the lesser known but still powerful (e.g., Love Affair.)Each listing offers release dates, a brief story, production highlights, and concise critical reaction, along with wonderful black-and-white photo stills. The introduction offers reasons why these films succeeded and reminds readers that film preservation makes them available. An index interfiles names and titles. This coffee-table book is recommended for most public libraries and academic libraries supporting film studies. --Patricia Hogan
