Leonard Maltin opens his personal archive in this book where he takes readers on a fascinating journey through Golden Era Hollywood. He landed one-on-one interviews with Warner Bros. sexy pre-Code siren Joan Blondell; Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Burgess Meredith; Cecil B. DeMille's right-hand-man Henry Wilcoxon; and others. Later in his career, Maltin sat down with men and women who worked inside the top studios during the heyday of movies and early television which revealed what life was like under the titans of Hollywood. Included are key feature articles from Maltin's newsletter Movie Crazy, which provides new perspectives on the Warner Bros. classics Casablanca and Gold Diggers of 1933 as well as many other masterpieces—and bombs—from Hollywood history. Readers will also look at Hollywood's "overlooked" studio, RKO Radio Pictures, which gave us such classics as King Kong and the many dance musicals of Astaire and Rogers. History shines through from the first page to the last in this unique volume, which includes 150 rare photos and a comprehensive index.

#1 New Release on Amazon! Backwards and in Heels ─ women in film and their struggle against bias “After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels...” - Ann Richards Women have been instrumental in the success of American cinema since its very beginning. One of the first people to ever pick up a motion picture camera was a woman. As was the first screenwriter to win two Academy Awards, the inventor of the boom microphone and the first person to be credited with the title Film Editor. Throughout the entire history of Hollywood women have been revolutionizing, innovating, and shaping how we make movies. Yet their stories are rarely shared. This is what film reporter Alicia Malone wants to change. “Backwards and in Heels” tells the history of women in film in a different way, with stories about incredible ladies who made their mark throughout each era of Hollywood. From the first women directors, to the iconic movie stars, and present day activists. Each of these stories are inspiring in the accomplishments of women, and they also highlight the specific obstacles women have had to face. “Backwards and in Heels” combines research and exclusive interviews with influential women and men working in Hollywood today, such as Geena Davis, J.J. Abrams, Ava DuVernay, Octavia Spencer, America Ferrera, Paul Feig and many more, as well as film professors, historians and experts. Think of “Backwards and in Heels” as a guidebook, your entry into the complex world of women in film. Join Alicia Malone as she champions Hollywood women of the past and present, and looks to the future with the hopes of leveling out the playing field.
