Twentieth Century's Fox tells the whole story - from Zanuck's boyhood to his tumultuous years with the feuding Warners, his battles with the censors and with his own actors, and the legendary acting-out of scenes during story conferences in his famous green office. Along the way, Custen treats us to inside stories about actors such as Edward G. Robinson, Gregory Peck, and Marilyn Monroe. In never-before-published story conference notes, telegrams, and surprisingly candid anecdotes, he reveals how - more than any producer before or since - this diminutive, enigmatic fellow from Wahoo, Nebraska, changed the way we look at film.
