Price: $10.00
If it were not for the vision and enterprise of Darryl F. Zanuck and 20th Century-Fox, chances are none of us would be enjoying widescreen films today. Instead, we’d still be watching movies and TV on the same postage-stamp screen that became standard when movies began to talk in 1927. This survey of Fox’s contributions to the CinemaScope Revolution which that studio started back in 1953, examines no less than 140 key films (with extensive cast and technical credits, plus release details and other background information, including prizes and awards).

    "CinemaScope Two: 20th Century-Fox" Here is a follow-up book to "CinemaScope One: Stupendous in 'Scope" which provided a general overview of the CinemaScope (or widescreen) Revolution initiated by 20th Century-Fox in 1953 with "The Robe". This new book concentrates on that one creative and innovative studio which, under the inspired leadership of Darryl F. Zanuck, led the motion picture industry out of the TV doldrums and into the 21st century. Here are some of the films that captured the public's attention (and more importantly, money). 140 of them are lovingly detailed with extensive cast and technical credits and much background information. And there are lots of interesting reproductions (in black-and-white, alas) of contemporary posters from all over the world.
