The Rise of the American Film

New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1939. First Edition. Near Fine in a lovely, Near Fine example of the dust jacket. A comprehensive history of American cinema up to the beginning of World War II, beginning with George Melies, the birth of the Hollywood studios, and D.W. Griffith, and ending with the dawn of the "auteur" era (Vidor, Lang, von Sternberg, Capra, Ford, etc.) A focused, factual look at cinema's first four decades. Profusely illustrated with black-and-white plates throughout. A title that emerges in jacket from time to time, but virtually never in this condition. [Book #112385]
