A History of the Movies (Classic Reprint)

La description

Excerpt from A History of the Movies At the end of four years I had produced a manuscript of ap proximately words. The editorial board of one publishing house to whom it had been submitted suggested presenting it in three volumes! The mere thought of three volumes disheartened me so thoroughly that the manuscript was retired to my shelves. Then Harry Block, an editor who had read portions of the manu script, returned from a year's absence abroad. He rescued the book from my library shelves, read it, and generously offered to assist me in reducing it to one-volume length. Thanks to him that work has been done. Without his enthusiasm, intelligence, and skill, I do not believe that the book could ever have been completed.
