'The Name Above The Title' provides a star vehicle for one of the few really great men of moviedom.The history of Hollywood and the story of Frank Capra's forty-year career then 1971 there run parallel: the rise of the motion picture from Mack Sennett's Keystone Klown Kollege through the triumphant years of the best and best-loved movies ever made - many of them with Capra's name above the title.<br /> From the time young Capra left his Sicilian ghetto in Los Angeles for Columbia PicturesHarry Kohn's then second-rate studio on Poverty Rowhe had his eye on the Holy Grail - the Oscar - and after nine fantastic years he got his first one followed by the longest unbroken string of Motion Picture Academy Awards in theatrical annals: three for best directortwo for best pictureand one for best documentary. 'It Happened One Night' received all five major awards.Among the titles with his name above them: Mr. Deeds Goes to TownMr. Smith Goes to WashingtonState of the UnionIt's a Wonderful LifeLost HorizonYou Can't Take It with Youand many others. 'The Name Above The Title' is full of good stories about such famous stars as Jean ArthurBarbara StanwyckKatharine HepburnSpencer TracyBette DavisHarry LangdonFrank SinatraClark GableJimmy StewartGary CooperClaudette Colbert Walter Hustonand hosts of others.There is even a fascinating full-length portrait of that archetype of a Hollywood S.O.B.Harry Kohn - andamazinglyCapra makes you rather like the guy! There is also much about the art of movie-making: an analysis of the great directorsthe techniques of photographythe methods pioneered by Capraadvice to young filmmakersand what does - and doesn't - make for good comedy. Throughoutthe reader will find ample evidence of Capra's characteristic sense of pace and his ear for dialogue.It even hasrare in a book of reminiscencessuspense.George Seaton remarks: "There are more cliff hangers in it than a Pearl White serial.Will Mack Sennett relent and rehire Capra Will Jack Holt punch Frank in the nose Will the Directors Guild win" "If it hits you right off it's good entertainment" Frank Capra says of films.He also holds that "there are some things you can take with you." 'The Name Above The Title' offers both: good entertainmentand many fine memories that you can take with you.
