about this item

This book looks at how the Warner Bros. studio used edgy, stylistic, and brutally honest films to construct a view of America from 1927-1941. Author Chris Yogerst looks at how the Warner Bros. films during this period represented important cultural and social changes—from the coming of sound in film, the Great Depression, the rise of crime, and the increased concern about fascism leading up to World War II.
