PICTURES AT A REVOLUTION Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood

by | Read by Lloyd James

Contemporary Culture • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Hollywood was transformed in the 1960s, and author Mark Harris makes the argument that 1967—and the five films nominated for an Oscar that year—marked the true beginning of the "new Hollywood." Filled with beautiful moments of sniping and tales of an industry consumed by petty rivalries and fragile egos, Harris’s book traces the simultaneous evolution of these five films—BONNIE AND CLYDE, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, THE GRADUATE, GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, and DOCTOR DOOLITTLE—each one a microcosm of a much larger forces at work. Lloyd James's delivery is at times bemused, at other times measured and pronounced as he conjures such legends as Dustin Hoffman and Faye Dunaway—actors we all know and love today—when they were just starting out.
