A profusely illustrated history of moviemaking in Utah, from the early twentieth century to the present. For more than 100 years, the magnificent scenery and locales of Utah have played host to hundreds of Hollywood films and TV episodes, including memorable films such as The Searchers, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Planet of the Apes, Easy Rider, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Thelma & Louise, and Forrest Gump. This book gives readers the inside scoop on how these films were made, what happened on and off set, and more. Author and film historian James V. D’Arc provides a wealth of trivial factoids for movie buffs, including anecdotes about the interactions of Utah locals with actors and crew. New and updated text and photos have been added to the previous edition (When Hollywood Came to Town) to bring this edition up to date with movies and TV shows filmed in Utah since 2010. James V. D’Arc was curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive at the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, for 41 years. He lives in Orem, Utah.

Artists and filmmakers in the early twentieth century reshaped our vision of the American West. In particular, the Taos Society of Artists and the California-based artist Maynard Dixon departed from the legendary depiction of the “Wild West” and fostered new images, or brands, for western art. This volume, illustrated with more than 150 images, examines select paintings and films to demonstrate how these artists both enhanced and contradicted earlier representations of the West. Prior to this period, American art tended to portray the West as a wild frontier with untamed lands and peoples. Renowned artists such as Henry Farny and Frederic Remington set their work in the past, invoking an environment immersed in conflict and violence. This trademark perspective began to change, however, when artists enamored with the Southwest stamped a new imprint on their paintings. The contributors to this volume illuminate the complex ways in which early-twentieth-century artists, as well as filmmakers, evoked a southwestern environment not just suspended in time but also permanent rather than transient. Yet, as the authors also reveal, these artists were not entirely immune to the siren call of the vanishing West, and their portrayal of peaceful yet “exotic” Native Americans was an expansion rather than a dismissal of earlier tropes. Both brands cast a romantic spell on the West, and both have been seared into public consciousness. Branding the American West is published in association with the Brigham Young University Museum of Art, Provo, Utah, and the Stark Museum of Art, Orange, Texas.

For well more than a century, Western films have embodied the United States' most fundamental doctrine--expansionism--and depicted, in a uniquely American way, the archetypal battle between good and evil. Westerns also depict a country defined and re-defined by complex crises. World War II transformed the genre as well as the nation's identity. Since then, Hollywood filmmakers have been fighting America's ideological wars onscreen by translating modern-day politics into the timeless mythology of the Old West. This book surveys the most iconic and influential Westerns, examines Hollywood stars and their political stripes and reveals the familiar Westerns tropes--which became elements in popular action, science fiction and horror films. This then sets the stage for the Western revival of the 1990s and a period of reinvention in the 21st century.

Strangers In Hollywood is the story of a special group of immigrants who came to the "New Land", not to plow the American soil but to harvest the riches of Hollywood. They were the first actors from Scandinavia - Denmark, Norway and Sweden - to leave their mark on the American film industry. Included here are the stories not only of the major Scandinavian actors of the period, Greta Garbo, Sonja Henie and Anna Q. Nilsson, but also those film personalities who are now forgotten: female impersonator Bothwell Browne from Denmark; child star Tula Belle from Norway; millionaire's daughter Sadie Lindblom from Sweden; and Samuel Goldwyn's infamous "Edsel" Sigrid Gurie.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “One of the greatest tricks that the patriarchy plays on women is to deliberately destabilize them, then use their instability as a reason to disbelieve them. Much of BRAVE reads like the diary of a woman driven half-mad by abusive men who assume no one will listen to her. In this case, the truth was finally—and, for McGowan, triumphantly—exposed...” —The New York Times Book Review "BRAVE works beautifully as a manifesto. It’s a call to arms—not just against the specific men who mistreated McGowan and the men and women who enabled that mistreatment, but against an industry."—The Boston Globe A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto – A voice for generations Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit. Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck. BRAVE is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE. "My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. BRAVE is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you do the same." -Rose McGowan

When Don Miller's Hollywood Corral was originally published in 1976, it was eagerly embraced by the thriving core of Western film fans that had coalesced during the preceding decade. There had already been several historical surveys of the genre, but none had focused exclusively on the low-budget series Westerns of Hollywood's Golden Age. Miller's work was a lively and informative volume on the subspecies, which included more than 2,000 movies. Hollywood Corral was eagerly accepted by its target audience: serious B Western fans and collectors. Long out of print, it has been much sought after by a new generation of hobbyists who, thanks to the proliferation of old movies on videotape, videodisc, and cable TV, have discovered the joys of B Western watching. With the original's mistakes corrected and a different photo selection accompanying this reprint, Hollywood Corral had been augmented with newly written essays covering specific aspects of the genre not fully covered by Miller. Some of the country's leading film historians are represented in these pages, contributing knowledge about B Western production little known even among the genre's most fervent devotees. Studio styles, literary precursors, location shooting, music scoring, and other facets of B Western production are examined with the same reverence and regard for historical accuracy generally accorded studies of more prestigious film forms. Hollywood Corral sports a breathtaking array of rare photos: over 400 in all, many of them never-before-published candid and behind-the-scenes shots, illustrating the entire history of the B Western era. And it also features a detailed bibliography that will direct students of the genre to other published works on Westerns. Newly written contributions from Gene Autry and Roy Rogers - the era's most beloved cowboy stars - round out this vastly entertaining package, which is sure to delight nostalgia-minded browsers and hardcore B Western aficionados alike.
