Early Warner Brothers Studios
I make no secret of the fact that my favorite studio producing films in the 1930s and 40s was Warner Brothers. They certainly made some damn fine silent films, too! Warner Brothers have more films in my personal top twenty than any other studio. Even the lamest programmer has something to recommend to me. The look, the feel, the grit and the snappy dialogue of a Warners film is unmistakable, as unmistakable as a Max Steiner or Erich Wolfgang Korngold score.
An important new book on the studio covering the early years of the brothers Warner from the early silent days on up to through the 1950s is covered in Early Warner Bros. Studio by E.J. Stephens and Marc Wanamaker.
The authors will be signing copies of the book at Larry Edmunds Bookshop which is the oldest remaining movie book store on
Larry Edmunds Bookshop
6644 Hollywood Boulevard
More than just a book signing, part of the evening plans will include a slide show of photos of Early Warner Bros. Studios as well as a discussion with the authors about the book.
