Résumé:

Depicts the lives of Jack, Harry, and Sam Warner and describes how they built Warner Brothers into a successful movie studio.

"For two generations the brothers Warner personified Hollywood and the moguls who dictated the moviegoing habits of people the world over. The children of poor immigrants from Tsarist Russia grew up to become part of--and to shape--one of the wealthiest and most glamorous industries in the world. And Jack Warner came to personify the cliché of the self-made tycoon. Michael Freedland explores the history of this remarkable phenomenon, putting each of the four brothers into the context of the company and the background of the industry itself, and looks at their own personal relationships. It was the Warners who brought sound to the cinema with the world's first ever 'talkie'--The Jazz Singer--and having done that, launched first the musical film and then the era of the gangster picture. The Warner Brothers is also the story of the stars themselves, the actors and actresses who became internationally famous through Warner Bros' films: Edward G. Robinson, Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney. There was even a dog: Rin Tin Tin. Michael Freedland has explored his subject by interviewing many of the people who worked in the film industry: the stars, choreographers, producers, directors. The result is a mine of anecdotal and first-hand information which strips away many of the myths and provides a rich and colorful portrait of a now-vanished era. 'This is not yet another studio story', says the author. 'Instead it is a story of the brothers themselves, of the men who made the movies, and in so doing made themselves.'"--Jacket.
