Description by OLDIES.com:
The business of filmmaking began with the Thomas Edison Studio in West Orange, New Jersey. Many studios have come and gone since then. From the little guys like feisty Mark Dintenfass and his 1905 "Actophone" unit (an unlicensed Pathe camera furtively grinding out films in defiance of the Motion Picture Patents Company) to heavyweights like Samuel Goldwyn and M-G-M, 66 studios of all sizes and specialties are covered in this book. The culmination of many years of exhaustive research, these detailed histories discuss films, stars, successes, and catastrophes. Numerous rare photographs are included.
