‘Five Came Back’: How the Story of Hollywood Directors In World War II Became a Great Netflix Series

2 April 2017 11:26 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Entertainment journalist Mark Harris followed up his well-reviewed 2009 “Pictures at a Revolution” with an even better and more accessible book, the dramatic story of five top Hollywood directors and their roles in producing WWII propaganda films, told over 500 pages: “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War. The first book was doomed not to become a movie due to prohibitive clip costs. But the urge to open up Harris’s exhaustive research on “Five Came Back” via dramatic documentary shorts shot in the global arena was irresistible — and they were free.

2 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »
