Read full description of the books The Stewardess Is Flying The Plane! American Films of the 1970s:With films such as The Godfather, Star Wars, The Sting, Rocky, Apocalypse Now, Jaws and M*A*S*H, the 1970s is now considered the second Golden Age of Hollywood. There is renewed interest in some of the decade's most durable genres, including disaster films and blaxsploitation flicks, allowing viewers to rediscover early performances from major stars such as Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton. Today's major film directors also got their start in this period, including Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Spielberg. The Stewardess is Flying the Plane! is a lavishly illustrated, fun and informative look at more than 400 films of the decade - not just classics like The Godfather or Taxi Driver, but cult favourites like Kansas City Bomber and even spectacular flops like Lost Horizon. With an introduction by Peter Bogdanovich, hundreds of never- before-published photographs and new interviews with key participants in the '70s film industry, The Stewardess is Flying the Plane! is the most comprehensive overview of this fascinating era of American film.
