This conglomeration of musings on myth, psychology, drama and poetry, often cantakerous or catty towards various actors or actresses, is so over the top in its plummy, fruity verbiage and the author's obvious love of the sound of his own voice, that few readers will make it to the end without skipping a page or three. The second caveat for modern readers is that Tyler wrote about the Hollywood films of his day, the late 1930s, and 1940s.

The best book of criticism bar none on the most important film genre. The Genius of the System: Hollywood Filmmaking in the Studio Era Thomas Schatz. First published in 1988, and thus the only one of my choices not first published in the 1960s (showing my age). Surely one of the greatest books about a national cinema ever written? Leyda spent several years in the USSR in the mid-30s, studying at the world’s first film school, and assisting Eisenstein on his eventually banned film, Bezhin Meadow. And those ‘witnessed years’, as he calls them, are the fulcrum of the book. But the whole sweep of Russian cinema up to the years just after Stalin’s death are vividly chronicled by Leyda.
