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.”

Remember our Fallen

Memorial Day, originally called "Decoration Day" was created
to honor those who have been slain in defense of the US.

As many of our returning customers know, we close on the holidays to recharge our batteries, as we're normally open 6/days/week.  As a former servicemember, I feel strongly that Memorial Day should be observed--and remembered.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 5:00 p.m, the night of May 24th 2019 through the morning of May 28th 2019.  Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  

Thanks, and have a happy and safe--and memorable--Memorial Day.
