Of all the job titles in the screen credits, 'producer' is the most amorphous, partly because these people are uniquely involved in several aspects of a movie project at once, partly because there are so many different kinds: businesswomen and businessmen producers, writer, director, film star producers & executive producers. Producers raise money and supervise development, they procure a script or book or 'pre-sold property' (like Harry Potter or Batman) and more. This book is all about what producers have actually done during Hollywood's history, delving into the careers of the exemplary figures, from Irving Thalberg to the multiple co-producers of 12 Years a Slave.

This is also a great introduction to the ways in which the Hollywood industry works as a business; producers are at the money, business end and their work runs through the entire process of getting a movie onto the screen - or failing to do so.
