Summary "Variety is not only a fascinating look at the history of entertainment as reported by the world's most highly-regarded commentator of show business news, it is also a history of American popular culture, and a record of the influence and confluence of art, life, and Hollywood. Illustrated with hundreds of front pages, articles, and new and archival photographs spanning Variety's more-than-century old archives, it includes personal anecdotes written exclusively for this book by a host of well-regarded artists. Variety is a decade-by-decade documentation of the seminal moments in history, including how pop culture reflected and responded to such pivotal moments in time as audiences' move from vaudeville houses to movie theaters, the sinking of the Titanic, the invention of the summer blockbuster, global politics, war, the moon landing, technological advances and the ever-changing social mores that were both reflected by and influenced the world"--Jacket
