CinemaScope: Selected Documents from the Spyros P. Skouras Archive
- CinemaScope (1953), the process that established the widescreen format in motion pictures, was more than a technical innovation. It breathed life into the film industry, saved Twentieth Century-Fox from liquidation, and inducted its president Spyros P. Skouras into the pantheon of American visionaries. For the first time an intimate story of the second technological revolution in film history emerges from the papers of Spyros P. Skouras. Ranging from correspondence with Churchill and Eisenhower to company memos and financial reports, this collection is an indispensable source for the historian and affords a rare glimpse into Hollywood's corporate performance at its best.
