The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) is director Vincente Minnelli’s (and producer John Houseman’s) quintessential movie about Hollywood and moviemaking. MGM’s popular hit, with David Raskin’s soundtrack and Robert Surtees’ great B/W cinematography, was an entertaining, noirish melodrama. It tells the steamy story of the ruthless eighteen-year rise and fall of a tyrannical, manipulative Hollywood movie tycoon – told in flashback and from multiple perspectives (from the point of view of a director, actress, and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer).
