Summary
This book explores the role of women in the development of Los Angeles and the nascent film industry. From Mary Pickford's rise to become perhaps the most powerful woman of her age, to the racist moral panics of the post-World War I years that culminated in Hollywood's first sex scandal, the author describes how the path through early Hollywood presaged the struggles over modern gender roles that animated the century to come.--From back cover
