This copy of The Movies by Richard Griffith and Arthur Mayer is a "Revised and updated edition of the classic history of American motion pictures." It's marked Copyright 1957, 1970 by Arthur Mayer and The Estate of Richard Griffith.

It's a big, fat soft cover book with so many wonderful photos it was hard to choose just a few samples to show you. This book was so popular, it's the fourth printing of the paperback version.
