In this major examination of modern American cinema, one of our leading film critics ponders this question - and produces a wide-screen picture of the answer. Here in detail are the careers and creative milestones of the new "Whiz Kids" of hollywood - such glittering names as Scorsese, De Palma, Lucas, Spielberg, Altman, Mazursky, and Coppola. Here are the new masters of comedy - Neil Simon, Mel Brooks, Woody Allen. Here are the blockbusters that made fiscal history- Jaws, The Exorcist, the Godfather, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Nashville, Superman, and all the others. Here, too, are the masterpieces that passed unnoticed, and the disasters that Hollywood would like to forget. Here are the new writers turning out novelizations of screenplays and screenplays of novels, and the current and rising stars who collectively represent America's vision of glamour and aristocracy. Above all, here is a bottom-line report on the new economics that have turned Hollywood from an old-fashioned industry centered on making movies into a "leisure-time" business obsessed with making money for coporate owners. Add to this a complete rundown of the top critics' choice for the best films of the decade, and a comprehensive "Who's Who" in current American filmmaking, and you have American Film Now- the definitve guide to the film industry as it is today and as it will be tomorrow."

Though much of Hollywood's engagement with the law occurs offstage, in the larger theater of copyright, many of Hollywood's valued treasures - from Modern Times (1936) to Star Wars (1977) - cannot be fully understood without appreciating their legal controversies. Peter Decherney shows that the history of intellectual property in Hollywood has not always mirrored the evolution of the law and recounts these extralegal solutions and their impact on American media and culture." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains list of illustrations and index ISBN: 9780231159470 More info

Most of these people have been interviewed so many times their answers had been turned to stone. Interviewers, too, are icon builders, and ask the same questions over and over. Celebreties, despite fame, are struggling to maintain their own living voices. It is Worrell's special gift as an interviewer and writer to hold up a mirror to the most closely held of reflections. Icons reads like a collection of finely honed short storie and raises the craft of celebrity reporting to the finest journalism." -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 0871133067 Donation: Donated by Simon Wincer Contents: Author's note -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction by Otto Friedrich -- Madonna is her given name -- The Eternal Childhood of Steven Spielberg -- Steve Martin in color -- Plain-wrap superstar Paul Newman -- Nastassia Kinski: wild child -- Bob Dylan down executioner's row -- David Lean on the far horizon -- The dark side of George Lucas -- Very very Bette Midler -- Oliver Stone goes to war -- Michael Jackson in Never-Never Land.

George Lucas was a typical Californian child of no great promise - he read comic books and watched TV; no one guessed that his imagination would inspire millions of people. Dale Pollock brilliantly tells the story of Lucas's legendary days at USCinema and his tangles with Francis Coppola and Universal Pictures. Pollock was one of the few reporters allowed on the set of RETURN OF THE JEDI, and he takes us behind the scenes of Lucas's movies. We find out how Artoo-Detoo got his name, how the Force came to be, and many other surprising revelations. Complete with photographs from Lucas's private collection, SKYWALKING is a powerful biography about a man who is setting the future course of film for years to come."

In the decade since then, his reputation as an inventive filmmaker with an unerring gift for knowing what will attract the paying customer has gone from strength to strength. Spielberg's technical assurance and gift for creating dazzling special effects are matched by his ability to interpret stories with the kind of pace and style that brooks no resistance. He has with some justification been called 'a magician in the age of the movies', yet despite his phenomenal success as a commercial filmmaker (no less than four of his films are among the top fifteen top money-making films of all time), he has been conspicuous by his absence in the lists of Academy Award winners. Is he, as some critics claim, merely the 'General Motors of kids movies', or will the next decade see him make a successful move into directing films with adult themes?"
