The Glamorous Years : The Stars & Films of the 1930s

£16.99

Product description

The Glamorous Years : The Stars and Films of the 1930s
by Alfred Brockman

There never was such a time. There can never be such a time again. The Second World War put paid to all that.

Only those people who lived and went to the cinema once, twice, thrice and even four times a week can know what it was like to live through the exciting (despite the Great Depression) days of the movies in the Twenties and Thirties, the Roaring Twenties and the Glamorous Thirties.

This book is devoted to the movies of the Thirties when long queues, stretching to hundreds of yards waited patiently outside cinemas in rain, snow, biting cold and over-powering heat to see the latest release. Not then was there a television set in nearly every home in the country, churning out modern and old-time movies by the scores. To see a film one had to visit a cinema and to the cinema they went in their millions all over the world.
