Moguls and Movie Stars
DVD ($39.92)

The acclaimed seven-episode Turner Class Movies network documentary about the history of Hollywood comes to DVD loaded with extras and additional insights from noted moviemakers and show-biz experts, plus a 40-page book of photos and commentary about the stars, directors and studios that created America’s movie industry. With each hour-long segment focusing on a different era of filmmaking, including “Peepshow Pioneers (1889-1907),” “Warriors and Peacemakers (1941-1950)” and “Fade Out, Fade In (1960-1969),” it’s an engrossing examination of how dreams of “moving pictures” became a dynasty.
