    "HOLLYWOOD'S MIRACLES OF ENTERTAINMENT" Packed with information, this book is an absolute mine of reading pleasure for all movie buffs and classic cinema enthusiasts. The films covered range from Fred Zinnemann's gripping 1948 film noir, "Act of Violence", to Metro's commercially unsuccessful "Yellow Jack" (1938) which attempted to cash in on Sidney Howard's fame as the screenwriter of "Gone With The Wind". Justly famous pictures like "Cover Girl" jostle for attention with movies that are half-forgotten like Richard Dix's spectacular western, "The Arizonian" (1935), which leads into a detailed examination of director Charles Vidor's whole career in the cinema. Similarly, a review of Lon Chaney's "Wolf Man" (1941) is followed by a comprehensive reference guide to all the "Wolf Man" movies up to 1963. Other miracles of entertainment vary from Frank Capra's "Platinum Blonde" (with Jean Harlow) to... More > the suspense of "Sorry, Wrong Number"; from the side-splitting antics of Eddie Cantor as "The Kid from Spain" to the screams of Fay Wray in the hands of "King Kong"; from the musical high-jinx of "His Butler's Sister" to the thrills of "The Invisible Man".< Less
