How exciting! Maisy has put her sun hat, pajamas, toothbrush, and camera into a bag, and she’s off to the train station with Panda and Cyril. They’re headed for the seashore, but getting there is only half the fun. Coloring and snacks help pass the time on the ride to the beach, where Maisy can’t wait to swim, collect seashells, build sandcastles, and lots more. At nighttime it feels special to go to bed in a hotel—knowing that tomorrow another vacation day awaits!

This work examines film series. Some are representative of three periods in American film history--silent cinema, Classic Hollywood cinema, and the post-Classic or New Hollywood cinema. And some are in the tradition of other national cinemas, including those of France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and India. The series are examined from a variety of cultural and critical perspectives. In the initial chapter the editor analyzes the series form. Part One examines early cinema, outlining the events and situations after 1907 that allowed early filmmakers to begin creating series based on the complex narratives of popular fiction. Part Two explores the cultural implications of such series as Tarzan, Nancy Drew, and Maisie. Chapters in Part Three analyze James Bond and Star Wars, two of the most widely recognized series in Hollywood history. Part Four examines mid-century Germany's Fridericus and France's Angelique and Caroline. The final part presents studies of the postwar Japanese series Godzilla and Tora-San, the popular Better Tomorrow series from Hong Kong, and several Hindi series from postcolonial India.

M-G-M: Hollywood’s Greatest Backlot is the illustrated history of the soundstages and outdoor sets where Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer produced many of the world’s most famous films. During its Golden Age, the studio employed the likes of Garbo, Astaire, and Gable, and produced innumerable iconic pieces of cinema such as The Wizard of Oz, Singin’ in the Rain, and Ben-Hur. It is estimated that a fifth of all films made in the United States prior to the 1970s were shot at MGM studios, meaning that the gigantic property was responsible for hundreds of iconic sets and stages, often utilizing and transforming minimal spaces and previously used props, to create some of the most recognizable and identifiable landscapes of modern movie culture. All of this happened behind closed doors, the backlot shut off from the public in a veil of secrecy and movie magic. M-G-M: Hollywood’s Greatest Backlot highlights this fascinating film treasure by recounting the history, popularity, and success of the MGM company through a tour of its physical property. Featuring the candid, exclusive voices and photographs from the people who worked there, and including hundreds of rare and unpublished photographs (including many from the archives of Warner Bros.), readers are launched aboard a fun and entertaining virtual tour of Hollywood’s most famous and mysterious motion picture studio.
