This book was released on 2014-05-28 with total page 316 pages. Book excerpt: "Erickson is one of those select few writers who can always be counted on to produce a quality book. His writing is informative, breezy, and most entertaining. I never have to worry about the information contained in one of his books; in fact, I learn a great deal from his impeccable research…he also sprinkles his text with interesting tidbits. This new book is no exception…. Erickson has given us a substantial history of these films and series…a pleasure to read and I recommend you get this excellent book."--Classic Images There was a time when "American popular entertainment" referred only to radio and motion pictures. With the coming of talking pictures, Hollywood cashed in on the success of big-time network radio by bringing several of the public's favorite broadcast personalities and programs to the screen. The results, though occasionally successful, often proved conclusively that some things are better heard than seen. Concentrating primarily on radio's Golden Age (1926-1962), this lively history discusses the cinematic efforts of airwave stars Rudy Vallee, Amos 'n' Andy, Fred Allen, Joe Penner, Fibber McGee & Molly, Edgar Bergen, Lum & Abner, and many more. Also analyzed are the movie versions of such radio series as The Shadow, Dr. Christian and The Life of Riley. In addition, two recent films starring contemporary radio headliners Howard Stern and Garrison Keillor are given their due.

This book was released on 2021-09-28 with total page 426 pages. Book excerpt: When Ozzie Nelson died in 1975, he was no longer a household name. For a guy who had created the longest-running TV sitcom in history, invented the rock video, and fronted one of the most successful big bands of the 1930s, it's baffling that Nelson has faded so far from American media memory. Larger than life offscreen--an attorney, college football star, cartoonist, songwriter, major band leader--Ozzie created a smaller-than-life TV persona, the bumbling average Dad who became known to the rock generation (which included his teen idol son Rick Nelson) as the essence of blandness. But America also saw Ozzie as their iconic Dad: not a "father knows best," since his pontifications usually proved flawed by the end of each episode, but the father who tried his best. This book is the only full-length biography of Ozzie Nelson since he published his memoirs in 1973. It treats the big band and early TV icon with affection and hints that American pop culture may owe more to Ozzie than is generally acknowledged.

This book was released on 2015 with total page 300 pages. Book excerpt: Volume 1 was very much an 'overview' of British cinema, from its earliest days to the present. In this, the second volume, the essays will be more specific to certain periods and will encompass the evolutions of individual genres and directors. This will make for complimentary essays to volume 1 rather than simply an updating of them. The section on silent cinema and melodrama is replaced in this volume by War and Family Films the former being an interesting genre that has periodically appeared in British films in differing ways, and the latter because Britain has always produced hugely successful movies that appeal to family audiences. Rather than have three individual essays pertaining to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, the volume will include examples of films made or set in those countries within the genre reviews. The volume will include information on established British directors such as Ken Loach and Danny Boyle as well as writing about avant-garde newcomer Ben Wheatley, who directed the fabulously strange, "A Field in England" (2013). This volume will also shine the spotlight on the British Film Institute, and its role in funding, preservation and education in relation to British cinema. This book takes a different angle to the first volume and as such would make an excellent companion to "Directory of World Cinema: Britain.""
