Re: The Q & A on Michael Curtiz with Alan K. Rode on Dec. 12th

Great question, Christy! Alan, Could you please tell a bit about the challenges you faced in writing this book? How long did it take you to research, write and edit this incredibly detailed biography? Given the fact that Curtiz died in 1962, were there many people you could turn to for first hand ac...

Of the many movies that used Las Vegas as a setting, from about the time of Roy Rogers' Heldorado (1946) to The Hangover Part III (2013), are...
