Hollywood Italians: Dagos, Palookas, Romeos, Wise Guys, and Sopranos

3.67  ·  Rating Details  ·  9 Ratings  ·  1 Review
From the silent era and The Black Hand (1906) to HBO's hit series The Sopranos, Hollywood has had a love-hate affair with Italian Americans. Now in paperback, Hollywood Italians is a celebration of nearly a century of images of Italians in American motion pictures and their often under-appreciated, underpraised, and truly remarkable contribution to popular culture.
