  • America's Film Legacy


America’s Film Legacy is a guide to the most significant films ever made in the United States. Unlike opinionated “Top 100” and arbitrary “Best of” lists, these are the real thing: groundbreaking films that make up the backbone of American cinema. Some are well-known, such as Citizen Kane, The Jazz Singer, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Birth of a Nation, and Boyz n the Hood. Others are more obscure, such as Blacksmith Scene, The Blue Bird, The Docks of New York, Star Theatre, and A Bronx Morning. Daniel Eagan’s beautifully written and authoritative book is for anyone who loves American movies and who wants to learn more about them.
