Robert Cochran and Suzanne McCray screened close to two hundred films from laughable box-office bombs to laudable examples of filmmaking -- in their research for this book. They ve enhanced their spirited chronological narrative with an appendix on documentary films, a ratings section, and illustrations chosen by Jo Ellen Maack of the Old State House Museum, where "Lights Camera Arkansas " debuted as an exhibit curated by the authors in 2013. The result is a book sure to entertain and inform those interested in Arkansas and the movies for years to come."
