Abstract:

Humorous, unpretentious account of the success-story of Warner Bros., with anecdotes of stars, actors, celebrities, movie moguls, and some of the Warner Bros. pictures.

"The autobiography of Jack Warner begins with his death and ends with 'My Fair Lady.' From the automobile accident at Cannes, which almost claimed his life--in fact, he was reported killed--back through the early days in Ohio; from the first movies and the beginning of the nickelodeon up to the modern-day theatres, the growth of Hollywood in the fabulous twenties, the creation of talking and sound films by his brothers and himself; through the Depression and war years until the recent success finally capped by 'My Fair Lady, ' Warner writes of public triumphs and of his personal observations and reflections on the Hollywood scene. The book is filled with people and anecdotes, the glittering people of both the movies and the international set, where Warner moves, of course, with equal ease. Here, too, are scenes from earlier days, days of drudgery and hard work--the Warner family and their drive toward the goal of their own studio, which became one of the best known in the world--Warner Bros. The eight-page photo insert evokes the nostalgia of the early years and the excitement of the present in the movies."--Dust jacket flaps.
