Description

Preston Sturges set a new standard for creativity in Hollywood. He not only wrote such films as “The Lady Eve,” “Sullivan‛s Travels,” “The Palm Beach Story,” and “The Miracle of Morgan‛s Creek,” he directed them as well at the rate of two a year. He opened the door for an entire generation of writers-turned-directors and made some of the most popular comedies of the sound era. At his peak, he earned the third-highest salary in the country. He was an inventor, songwriter, actor, playwright, restauranteur, industrialist, and winner of the Academy Award. He even owned a production company with his temperamental equal, Howard Hughes. Drawn from interviews, letters, and other primary source materials, this is the story of a legendary American filmmaker, who made and lost two fortunes, and whose genius shown brightly, as he put it, “between flops.”

Customer Service Changeover: Please read  

Fotolia 142626 small typinghands

Over the course of this week, March 8th, 2020-->March 14th, 2020 (we hope!), we are migrating and switching over to an entirely new customer service system.

Now, we expect that this new system will enable us--when we're accustomed to it--to answer your emails more quickly and efficiently.  

Like everything, though, it's new to us and we're going to need some time to get used to it.  We've been working on the migration for the past year, over 170,000 emails (yes, really!) to now, and we're changing over our chat and contact forms, too. Please--try to be patient with us, if you don't hear from us immediately. Our same-day response promise is still in place, but our reply times may lag, a bit, over the next few days, thanks.
