In less than a century the motion picture has grown from oblivion to one of the most powerful social forces of modern times. Its history is an intermingling of adventure, romance, and heartbreak. Buried in Hollywood's lineage are the hopes of hundreds of would-be starlets, the failures of bankrupt producers, as well as the accomplishments of some of the most prominent artists of the twentieth century. Both in its strengths and its weaknesses, the movies represent, perhaps more than any other art form, American of the twentieth century.
