Abstract:

The real story of the Warner brothers has all the drama of a big screen production - a rags-to-riches immigrant tale with tension and strife between four brothers, love and marriage, death and divorce, plotting and betrayal. Harry, Sam, Albert, and Jack. Their father Ben insisted that by sticking together they could succeed and prosper. And stick together they did, until they were separated over the years by the death of one brother, and, ultimately, by shocking betrayal. Using family letters, interviews, and personal recollections, Cass Warner Sperling, granddaughter of Harry Warner, and coauthor Cork Millner, along with Jack Warner Jr., have shaped a moving biography of this legendary Hollywood family. Written in a cinematic style and weaving in present-tense voices of still-living family members and former Warner Brothers associates, Hollywood Be Thy Name transports readers back to the beginnings of the movie era and into the lives of Hollywood's most enduring legends.
