"A widely respected expert on Hollywood cinema and the development of the studio system, Jonathan Kuntz has welcomed generations of UCLA students to the study of cinema with his popular course on the history of the American motion picture."

In "The Birth of Hollywood," Professor Kuntz serves as a mesmerizing guide through the earliest days of cinema, from the invention of film and the Hollywood system up through the development of the first "talkies."
