Comments for the Liveliest Art

The Liveliest ArtThe Liveliest Art: 06/12/07

The Liveliest Art by Arthur Knight covers the history of filmmaking from the early days of photography through the establishment of television. The book is at its best when covering the history of American cinema and the business of Hollywood and of the Movie Theater business.

Knight though, takes a manifest destiny approach to history writing, seeing all the developments worldwide were designed to make Hollywood possible and to make American cinema better than any other country. One quote that sums up the whole attitude of the book is: "No one can out Hollywood Hollywood."
