YAY for cjhtwo!! You got your book back and it took only a month.
I've been reading the book "With Amusement for All: A history of American Popular Culture since 1830" by LeRoy Ashby.
Sometimes a bit dry but always insightful and usually very entertaining -
Such as the information about the 1952 movie "High Noon." (To quote the book.) "The script writer, Carl Foreman, specifically intended the film to be a criticism of HUAC and of Hollywood for knuckling under to it."
Also John Wayne hated the movie "High Noon" because Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper) smashed the Marshall's badge in the ground, Wayne called it "the most un-American thing I've seen in my whole life." LOL LOL Them Hollywood conservatives sure can be sensitive!
