Hollywood Book Praised
Noted national film critic and historian Leonard Maltin has written a glowing review of the new IHS Press book Hoosiers in Hollywood.
Written by David L. Smith, Hoosiers in Hollywood presents native Hoosiers, as well as those who spent much of their formative years in the state, who have contributed in some fashion to the motion picture industry. The book includes Oscar winners and nominees, movies shot in or about Indiana, and Hoosiers on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, there are more than 300 illustrations, including promotional shots from Hollywood studios and movie posters.
In his review, Maltin called the publication "an entertaining, attractive, and suprisingly interesting coffee table book."

Hoosiers in Hollywood costs $59.95 and is available online from the Indiana Historical Society's History Market or by calling (800) 447-1830
