Abstract:

The fascinating tale of Hollywood powerhouse Paramount Pictures?beginning with its birth in the 1910s through the turbulent decade of the 1930s?was told in Early Paramount Studios by Marc Wanamaker, Michael Christaldi, and E.J. Stephens. Now the same authors are back to tell the next 60 years of the studio saga in Paramount Studios: 1940?2000, with a foreword by former Paramount head of production Robert Evans. This book picks up the story during the time of World War II?a successful era for the studio?which was followed by a decade of decline due to the upstart medium of television. By the 1960s, the studio teetered on the brink of bankruptcy before rebounding, thanks to several 1970s blockbusters, such as Love Story, The Godfather, and Chinatown. The tale continues through the final decades of the 20th century when Paramount showcased some of the greatest hits in its history.
