Product Description

In 1963, Hollywood's movie studios were contentedly churning out the westerns, prudish sex comedies, and overblown historical epics that had consistently made those who dominate the industry very, very wealthy. But the tastes of American moviegoers was about to change - suddenly and radically. Exploring the genesis of five movies at a pivotal moment for the future of American films - Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate, the popularhits Guess who's Coming to Dinner and In the Heat of the Night, and the big-budget disaster Doctor Doolittle - the book follows their fortunes through the waning days of the studio system & smack dab into the 'nouveau Sixties' Illus.
