Martin Bandyke Under Covers for May 2022: Martin interviews Scott Eyman, author of 20th Century Fox: Darryl F. Zanuck and the Creation of the Modern Film Studio

Thu, 05/05/2022 - 2:06pm

From New York Times bestselling author Scott Eyman, 20th Century Fox: Darryl F. Zanuck and the Creation of the Modern Film Studio is the story one of the most influential studios in film history, from its glory days under the leadership of legendary movie mogul Darryl F. Zanuck up to its 2019 buyout by Disney.

March 20, 2019 marked the end of an era -- Disney took ownership of the movie empire that was Fox. For almost a century before that historic date, Twentieth Century-Fox was one of the preeminent producers of films, stars, and filmmakers. Its unique identity in the industry and place in movie history is unparalleled -- and one of the greatest stories to come out of Hollywood.

This narrative tells the complete tale of the films, stars, intrigue, and innovations of the iconic studio that was.
