Newman, Kim. How the West was Found, Won, Lost, Lied About, Filmed and Forgotten. London: Bloomsbury, 1990. 237 p., illus. "is a cheeky survey of the Western genre's gene pool, a mythological history of the conquest of America as it is written in the Western movie. The progression of chapters follows a roughly historical timetable, beginning with tales of European settlement, and progressing through mountain men, the Civil War, trailblazing train and telegraph sagas, Indian wars, to the official cowboy period of the 1880s. Newman ends up with a consideration of "un-American Westerns" produced outside the U.S. and the struggling fate of the genre in recent years. Under these headings Newman collects and treats hundreds of individual film stories as if they were chapter and gloss in a fundamental text on American history as well as the history of a genre."

A Cappella Books, 2000 Rosenbaum, film critic for The Chicago Reader, argues consumers are powerless against "the media-industrial complex." He examines "how movies are packaged, distributed, and promoted, exposing industry secrets such as how Miramax often buys distribution rights to movies it then fails to distribute, presumably to make sure its competitors don't get them. The book shows, for the first time, how the corporate ownership of movie theaters defies antitrust laws and precedents stretching back over 50 years."
