Summary

"Richard Koszarski recreates the rise and fall of Fort Lee filmmaking in a remarkable collage of period news accounts, memoirs, municipal records, previously unpublished memos and correspondence, and dozens of rare posters and photographs - not just film history, but a unique account of what happened to one New Jersey town hopelessly enthralled by the movies."--BOOK JACKET.
