The Songs of Hollywood

Philip Furia and Laurie Patterson

  • Extremely well-illustrated with 200 film stills
  • Fascinating look at songs in both musical and dramatic films, the first book to cover both in one treatment.
  • Argues for original film musicals over film adaptations of Broadway musicals, and takes the latter to task for being "stagey"
  • Concluding chapter celebrates Hollywood's innovations in recent years, past the "golden age"
