ALLAN DWAN: THE LAST PIONEER
by Peter Bogdanovich
An entry into the Praeger Film Library Series by Peter Bogdanovich.
"There will never again be a movie career like Allan Dwan's. Over fifty years, he directed at least 400 pictures, and produced, wrote or supervised as many more. Film history being the mess it is, his exact total is not likely to be known, but certainly two-thirds of that opus - almost the whole silent period - is virtually lost forever. The few examples that remain from those more carefree times make it clear that the years before 1929 - when he had the most independence - were his most creative, valuable and successful." - Peter Bogdanovich
