Columbia Companion to American History on Film

This scholarly work focuses on how Hollywood films have dealt with historical figures, places, and events from the silent era to the present day. Each section is filled with filmographies, lists of pertinent films, discussions by noted film critics, cross-references, and bibliographies of relevant materials in both print and nonprint formats. Each section also tries to ascertain what the key films on the topic are; if filmmakers have altered the facts to enhance the story; and if social, political, or technical factors have influenced the production.--School Library Journal
