"For almost two decades up to the mid-1950s five studios dominated Hollywood. This "big studio system" had each churning out fifty-two movies a year, enough to showcase cinemas across the US with a new line-up each week. Studios assigned these lower-tier screenplays to directors under long-term contract - and expected them to stick to the script and stick to the budget. Just making Movies presents twelve revealing interviews with "house directors" giving an unrivalled picture of how the system operated, as told by those who knew it best."
