Reviews

"

Thorsen presents us with a thoroughly engaging book about a littlediscussed area of filmmaking in the silent era, managing to make the story accessible even for those readers with little or no knowledge of business or finance. What is more, he does so in a way that makes it of interest not only to scholars interested in the relatively niche area of the business of filmmaking, but those researching the silent era in general.

"

By working with the actual sources, the volume is rich in detail ... the book is an entertaining story about one of the big players in early film history.
