Description:
One of the most remarkable trade papers that Hollywood ever produced. Founded by Tamar Lane in Los Angeles in the mid-1920s, THE FILM MERCURY consistently argued that film was an art form in need of true artists. Yet the weekly paper also indulged in gossip and analyzed movies from 'the Box Office Angle.' A one of a kind LA publication that preceded HOLLYWOOD REPORTER and DAILY VARIETY and deserves to be rediscovered. -- Eric Hoyt, 2017
