About the Book

"Hollywood Speaks is a remarkable book. Schuchman's inquiry into how deafness has been treated in movies provides us with yet another window onto social history in addition to a fresh angle from which to view Hollywood. Moreover, he joins the ranks of the few scholars who have made use of Hollywood studio archives."
-- Thomas Cripps, author of Slow Fade to Black: The Negro in American Film, 1900-1942
