Praise for the First Edition: "There is much here for the serious film buff to relish." --The Jerusalem Post Magazine "[A] fascinating and challenging study, one that sheds light not only on the changing character of the American Jew, but on the changing nature of American society and the films that reflect it." --The Australian Jewish News
