Here it is: the first-time look at the remarkable American multinational mass media empire and its century of entertainment-the story of Twentieth Century Fox (1915-2015). Or, to borrow the title of a classic 1959 Fox film, The Best of Everything. This is the complete revelatory story-bookended by empire builders William Fox and Rupert Murdoch-aimed as both a grand, entertaining, nostalgic and picture-filled interactive read and the ultimate guide to all things Twentieth Century Fox. The controversies and scandals are here, as are the extraordinary achievements. Among other firsts, the book offers fun tours of its historic production and ranch facilities including never-before-told stories about its stars and creative personalities (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, James Dean, and Shirley Temple got started there). Finally, it is the first such work approved by the company and utilizing its own unique resources. The authors primarily tell a celebratory tale, but most importantly, an accurate one.
Michael Troyan has worked as an archivist at the Walt Disney and Warner Bros. studios as well as a consultant and film historian elsewhere.
