It specialized in selling dreams: wildly popular comedies like It Happened One Night and Men in Black. Sweeping epics, including Lawrence of Arabia, and sci-fi blockbuster Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Since 1924, Columbia Pictures has made over 3,000 movies and has become one of the most successful studios of Hollywood's golden age. Every one of those titles appears in this grandly oversize, picture-filled book, along with a synopsis, casting, lively critical commentary, and running time. Some of Hollywood's brightest stars--in front of and behind the camera--appear, including Clark Gable, Rita Hayworth, Clint Eastwood, Dustin Hoffman, Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Kate Winslet, Frank Capra, and Steven Spielberg. Plus: commentary on the studio's operation in this corporate age; sister company TriStar; and every Columbia film that won, or received a nomination for, an Oscar.
