Hollywood by Charles Bukowski Pdf

‘What will you do?’ ‘Oh, hell, I'll write a novel about writing the screenplay and making the movie.’ ‘What are you going to call it?’ ‘Hollywood.’ Henry Chinaski has a penchant for booze, women and horse-racing. On his precarious journey from poet to screenwriter he encounters a host of well-known stars and lays bare the absurdity and egotism of the film industry. Poetic, sharp and dangerous, Hollywood – Bukowski’s fictionalisation of his experiences making the film Barfly – explores the many dark shadows to be found in the neon-soaked glare of Hollywood’s limelight.

Working in Hollywood by Ronny Regev Pdf

A history of the Hollywood film industry as a modern system of labor, this book reveals an important untold story of an influential twentieth-century workplace. Ronny Regev argues that the Hollywood studio system institutionalized creative labor by systemizing and standardizing the work of actors, directors, writers, and cinematographers, meshing artistic sensibilities with the efficiency-minded rationale of industrial capitalism. The employees of the studios emerged as a new class: they were wage laborers with enormous salaries, artists subjected to budgets and supervision, stars bound by contracts. As such, these workers--people like Clark Gable, Katharine Hepburn, and Anita Loos--were the outliers in the American workforce, an extraordinary working class. Through extensive use of oral histories, personal correspondence, studio archives, and the papers of leading Hollywood luminaries as well as their less-known contemporaries, Regev demonstrates that, as part of their contribution to popular culture, Hollywood studios such as Paramount, Warner Bros., and MGM cultivated a new form of labor, one that made work seem like fantasy.

Hollywood's Melodramatic Imagination by Geoff Mayer Pdf

Melodrama is the foundation of American cinema. It is, however, a poorly understood term. While it is a pervasive and persuasive dramatic mode, it is not tied to any specific moral or ideological system. It is not a singular genre; rather, it operates as a "genre generating machine" capable of determining the aesthetics and structure of the drama within many genres. Melodrama centers the conflict around the clash between good and evil and provides a sense of poetic justice--but the specific values embedded in notions of good and evil are determined by the culture, and they shift from nation to nation, region to region, and period to period. This book explores the "populist" westerns of the 1930s, the propaganda films that followed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the popularity of Sax Rohmer's master villain Fu Manchu. "Melodramas of passion" and film noir also offer a challenge to melodrama with its seemingly alienated protagonists and downbeat endings. Yet, with few exceptions, Hollywood was able to assimilate these genres within its melodramatic imagination.

Hollywood's Man who Worried for the Stars by Carolyn Roos Olsen,Marylin Hudson Pdf

For years people said someone should write a book about Bö Roos, but nobody will believe it. Now his daughter Carolyn has written the book, and it is believeable as it captures Hollywood's Golden Age and Bö Roos's unique part in it as one of Hollywood's most powerful and successful business managers. It's an amazing piece of Hollywood history that hasn't been covered before. Ben Newman, Attorney (Bö Roos) virtually founded the profession of business manager and personal manager (to Hollywood's stars). Daily Variety Because of his flamboyant, high powered and hectic way of life, Bö (pronounced Boo) Roos could have been the model for the movie sterotype of the Hollywood business manager. The New York Times Bö Roos' life story is a saga that would top the Horatio Alger novels of yesteryear. The Foreign Friends of Acapulco newsletter Bö Roos was a man of outsize personality and zest. Ballerina Margot Fonteyn Bö Roos not only keeps (his clients) on an allowance - he eats, drinks, and even weeps with them. Saturday Evening Post Bö invested and took risks right alongside his clients claiming more conservative managers were 'guys going through life with nothing on their chests.' Working with him was always full of excitement and the unexpected. Carolyn's captured his story well. Al Marsella, CPA
