A portrait of moviemaking in Hollywood's classic studio era, this study reveals the genius of a system of collaboration and confrontation, rather than viewing it as a business which stifles artistic talent. It focuses on four representative companies - Warner Bothers, MGM, Universal and Selznick international and traces their distinctive house styles and studio operations from the 1920s through to the 1950s. Thomas Schatz has also written "Hollywood Genres".
