    I bought this book for 150 new forty six years ago and it remains my favorite film book ever It's been my guide ever since then; I'm still seeing films discussed in it for the first time The Ballantine reprint is very good adds indexes as well

    As Leonard Maltin says in the Introduction most people associateB movies with tackiness and everything bad They were certainly cheap but as Don Miller delves into them some extraordinaryinnovations were allowed to be put through only because thefilms were cheap and no one was going to be out of pocket LikeThe Sin of Norah Moran 1933 a real downer by Majestic which has heroine going to the electric chair with a lot of graphicdetail but was from first to last stream of consciousness I think it predates The Power and the Glory 1933As William K Everson is to the Western Don Miller must be tothe Bs there doesn't seem to be any B movie from even the lowlieststudio Action Mayfair that he hasn't seen Way back in 1930there were no double features but by 1933 with the depressionkilling movie attendance little films started to rear their headsSometimes it produced sleepers so called when minor films wereso good they caught everyone napping King of the Jungle 1933starred Buster Crabbe to cash in on the Tarzan craze one criticfrom The Times compared him to Johnny Weismuller from the neckup he is a vast improvement just love that uote but it proveda big hit by spoofing the genre before it had even got goingmuchlike Lon Chaney's The Monster by showing what would happen ifTarzan here named Kaspa was brought back to civilization AndMama Loves Papa a Paramount film released in the dead box officeseason of summer featured a new screen team Mary Boland andCharlie Ruggles and made the NBR's top film list of 1933Another oddity mentioned was the very B Hello Sister of Fox it had began life as an Erich Von Stroheim directed A as WalkingDown Broadway which if you have seen the movie makes a lot sense He vowed to give Zasu Pitts the dramatic role of herlife and the finished film had her as a psychotic old maid insanelyjealous of her pretty room mate By the time the film was releasedanother director had been bought in and what emerged was a grittybut light weight film about young love in depression New York Pittsrole was supporting and only her whining was present When talkiescame in studios were reacting like passengers on the Titantic according to Bill Haines and stars whose contracts were due toexpire were jittery whence the reason a 1930 exploitation filmlike Party Girl had Douglas Fairbanks Jnr Jeanette Loff and anuncredited Marie Prevost they went were work was offeredMiller says the minor studios specialized in different genres andhad different looks to them the same as the majors Majestic wasone of the hidden gems they were a small versatile company whoseproduct was far above average The Sin of Norah Moran had loadsof experimentation The Vampire Bat1933 a superior horror whichstarred Lionel Atwill Fay Wray and Melvyn Douglas a trio whichhad all been seen in major films that year The World Gone Madhad Pat O'Brien and Evelyn Brent as well as Mary Brian Neil Hamiltonand Louis Calhern in a topical film for 1933 about big businessand stock market corruption Brent was also in The Crusader aboutyou guessed it an honest DA Majestic disappeared in 1935 and before it went out of business in 1934 Mayfair specialized in luridmelodrama Her Resale Value Sin's Pay Day and Sister to Judasetc By 1935 a lot of these studios were gone but strangely the cinema double bill was here to stay Major studios were getting in onthe act and setting up B producing units making movies that couldshowcase their up and coming talent or players nearing the end oftheir contractSome seen better days stars owed the rest of their careers to theBs Richard Dix dropped by RKO because of faltering box office wasbrought back by same studio for a series of westerns then in the1940s found himself with a life sentence literally issued byColumbia to appear in The Whistler series Another actor who foundhimself shackled to Columbia was Warner Baxter for The Crime Doctorseries and yet another once big star Richard Arlen found himselfin a series of Universal oaters buddied up with Andy Devine But wait there's Chester Morris a completely under rated actorin my opinion hit pay dirt in the 40s with Columbia's BostonBlackieMiller writes in a breezy very readable style it sounds like heis remembering the films from first hand experience of sittingin the movie theatre You know exactly who he likes and doesn't he rates Jane Withers highly saying she was a breath of fresh airand a welcome relief against the sugariness of Shirley Temple Healso doesn't believe Marian Nixon ever received a fair go in thetalkies The way he describes Grand National's coup of obtainingJames Cagney is hilarious Imagine Cagney in an indie not FirstNational but Grand National Among other chapter headings ForAdults Only about the proliferation of exploitation films thatwere about in the 1930s Reefer Madness The Pace That KillsAssassin of Youth Strangely when the book was written in 1973they had some funny ideas about marihuana not being addictive page87 Two Dollar Bills about Pine Thomas productions even onecalled The Runt of the Litter all about PRC The only down sideof the book is that it ends in the late 1940s boo hooI'd just like to mention a terrific B team that Miller mentions aswell Frankie Darro and Mantan Moreland They were starred in a series of Monograms which saw Frankie as a bell hop delivery boysoda jerk etc usually getting involved in a murder mystery as ayoung Sherlock He would be teamed with Mantan an Afro Americanactor I always liked in movies The fact that they acted as an eualteam there was no down talking or racist jokes in the 1940suite a feat I read an interview with Darro where he praised Mantanand said it was an honour and privilege to work with him and thatthey were great mates It definitely showed

    It's a superb run down of Hollywood movie making practices from the thirties to the fifties; written in very chatty garrulous conversational terms Every paragraph practically mentions a film and who starred in that film; who directed that film; and anything unusual to note about how the film was made or in what way it pioneered Mind now 'Dog' films are also called out; this is not just a book of 'raves' and 'exulting' When a movie bombed; or when a studio floundered that too is remarked upon There is freuent mention of what studio was boughtsold into what successor studioThe format is refreshing because most books which start out to describe the enormous production history of the era here wind up being mere 'film catalogues' or 'film encyclopedias' This author clearly has seen all the films he writes about; and his uickly rattles off his opinions and recommendations whether yeanayNevertheless this book is spared from the other extreme the opposite end of the spectrum of 'boring film books' in that it is not a film critic's ponderous work of theory and film analysis This is not a work of analysis; it is of a historical survey The perfect middle ground light and brisk; but informative without being sententiousTop sum up this title is really a must have on any film buff's shelf It gives much mileage for its purchase price than many other similar works might Hollywood was constructed on the strength of the genre' film This book covers those trends in the proper necessary depth Few other works do you will discoverI'll make this assertion as well understanding 'B' movie history distinguishes the dedicated film buff from hordes of lazy devotees; and also sets one apart from the often 'useless' airy ivory tower cineaste' type Miller's fun investigation along with the work of Susan Sackett offers formidable ammo with which to bombard the modern blinkered filmgoing ignoramuses who swear that the Golden Age of Hollywood is either a fib or a lie; and that it never was any better than what we got today appalling levels of stupidity out there today


  4. Michael Ritchie Michael Ritchie says:

    I love this book This was my third time reading it in the 30 years since it was published The first time in the late 80s I was a classic movie fan but not necessarily a B movie fan so I hadn't seen many of the films Miller discusses The second time a few years back I was much familiar with the genre thanks largely to Tuner Classic Movies This time I've seen a great number of the films covered maybe half this time due to YouTube and some niche DVD releases Miller relates the history of B movie production from the the beginning of talkies to the end of WWII not only the Bs made by the bigger studios but the movies from the low budget Poverty Row studios like Monogram and PRC A good chunk of the book is short plot summaries of the films but I found these very interesting I keep this book on my movie reference shelf to consult whenever I watch a B film I consider it a treasure and I'm sad that the author died before he could write a revised edition for the age of home video access


  5. Mumbler Mumbler says:

    Don Miller's survey is lot broad than deep There's a lot of affection for this world of moviemaking and some for particular movies actors or filmmakers And plenty of amusing dismissals of efforts or rather non efforts that he was not impressed with Miller can turn a sentence; there are some that I really enjoyedA month or so later a modern version of The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins appeared in not especially suspenseful form with David Manners Phyllis Barry and that gaunt menace Gustav von SeyffertitzIf you like Thirties and Forties movies a lot you'll probably want to take a look You might not want to read the whole thing at once It will certainly drop a few movies onto your lists
