Reviews

"...a fascinating study that readers will find difficult to pause between finishing one chapter and starting the next one."--Los Angeles City Historical Society Newsletter
"It is rare for a scholar to have access to all the papers necessary to tell a story like this, from a corporation's inception onwards. Jewell not only makes great use of this primary material, but presents a clear, fair-minded narrative that puts the facts into proper context."--Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy
"Jewell is the foremost authority on RKO, one of the major studios of the classic Hollywood era. . . . The author is clear and candid. . . . A readable, thought-provoking analysis."--CHOICE
