..."Written in seven parts, the book starts with a historic time-capsule section, followed by the chapters covering the early silent movie epoch; "Hollywood's Golden Era"; cinematography of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s; the evolution of Latin American cinema; biographies of pioneering Puerto Rican actors, and Puerto Rican Oscar recipients. The book also touches on cinema made in Puerto Rico and México, while highlighting legendary talents... Excellent and Informative." -Rudy Mangual, Editor Latin Beat Magazine
