      Lewis does an excellent job giving context to a great deal of history and filmmaking. At times he focuses a little too much on specific films (and his descriptions are not always accurate). But he connects aesthetic and production trends to the general economic changes in the industry, acknowledges the contributions of women, talks about competing industries and film forms, and has just overall great big stills from the films.

      Very good textbook about the history of American film. Lewis writes straightforwardly and even throws a few jokes in every so often. Excellent resource for students who are studying American/Hollywood filmmaking, or for people who are simply interested in understanding trends over 100 years of moviemaking as well as American history.
