THE STAR MACHINE by Jeanine Basinger

In an entertaining compilation of Hollywood lore, trivia, and analysis, a leading film historian provides a close-up look at the golden era of filmmaking and the creation of stars at the height of the studio system, from the 1930s to the 1950s, explaining how the star machine worked, the grooming of actors, and the careers of such actors as Tyrone Power, Errol Flynn, Lana Turner, and others.
