Although a major Hollywood studio still bears William Fox's name, the man himself has been largely forgotten by history—even written off as a failure. Now, in this commanding biography, Vanda Krefft corrects the record, explaining why Fox's legacy is central to the annals of Hollywood. At the heart of William Fox's life is the myth of the American dream. His story intertwines the fate of the nineteenth-century immigrants who flooded into New York, the splendor of the city's vibrant and ruthless Gilded Age, and the birth of America's movie industry at the dawn of the modern era. Drawing on a decade of orig-inal research, The Man Who Made the Movies offers a rich, compelling look at a complex man emblematic of his time, one of the most fascinating and formative periods in American history. Growing up in the tenements of New York's Lower East Side, the eldest son of impoverished Hungarian immigrants, Fox began his career selling candy on the street. That entrepreneurial ambition would eventually expand one small Brooklyn theater into a $300 million empire of deluxe studios and theaters that rivaled those of Adolph Zukor, Marcus Loew, and the Warner brothers. and would launch such stars as Theda Bara. Amid the euphoria of the Roaring Twenties, the early movie moguls waged a fierce battle for control of their industry.
