Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungImpressed by the success of The Birth of a Nation, Robert Goldstein, owner of a well-known Los Angeles costume supply house, produced his own epic film drama, The Spirit of '76 and screened it in Los Angeles shortly after America's entry into World War I. The film was denounced as anti-British and treasonous, and Goldstein was arrested. This book documents the background to the film, and its making, his arrest, trial, and the repurcussions.

In 1990 he was awarded an honorary doctorate of letters by Bowling Green University; Lilian Gish called him "our preeminent historian of the silent film."
