"While the book fills in a huge gap in the understanding of how the movie business has taken shape, it also, more importantly, offers insight into how film history was initially packaged for audiences in America and abroad. . . . Hollywood Vault offers lessons on the tension between studios' fixation on the bottom line and the afterlives of cinema history that would serve both concerned cinephiles and archivists well. . . .a badly needed history.
