Coming Attraction

I'm pleased to announce that my eighth book will be published by McFarland next year.

It's a history and filmography of Pine-Thomas Productions, makers of more than 75 films in the 1940s and 1950s. The book offers much previously unpublished information about company founders Bill Pine and Bill Thomas, nicknamed "The Dollar Bills" for their ability to produce entertaining movies on modest budgets. In researching the book, I've been fortunate to enjoy the support and assistance of both the Pine and Thomas families, as well as an array of fascinating archival resources. There are also vintage photos you won't see anywhere else.

I hope you'll give it a look when it's released.
