Behind the Oscar
The Secret History of the Academy AwardsBook - 1994
Tracing the awards from their founding by Louis B. Mayer in 1928 to the present, Holden shows the evolution of the ceremony from a five-minute pat on the back to a six-week orgy of self-congratulation. "Marvelously entertaining, but also a serious and comprehensive inquiry".--Publishers Weekly. Photos.
