CHARLES F. ADAMS at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Local author Charles F. Adams celebrates the year film critics and historians are virtually unanimous in considering the greatest in the history of motion pictures with 1939: The Making of Six Great Films from Hollywood's Greatest Year. A must-have book that no movie fan should miss, this work captures 1930s Hollywood--an era which, in spite of being crass, commercial, restrictive, and frequently dysfunctional, produced immensely enjoyable films that are still watched with pleasure today.
