About the book

They Made the Movies features conversations with legendary directors who created many of film’s all-time classics, including Frank Capra, Alfred Hitchcock, and Robert Wise. This collection also celebrates the contributions of marginalized filmmakers such as Ida Lupino and Oscar Micheaux, who prevailed in Hollywood despite the discrimination they faced throughout their careers.
