WOMEN WHO RUN THE SHOW: How a Brilliant and Creative New Generation of Women Stormed Hollywood, 1973–2000

Mollie Gregory, Author . St. Martin's $25.95 (400p) ISBN 978-0-312-30182-8

Documentary film producer and director Gregory interviews over 100 powerful women who've made their mark in film in this hefty book. She organizes it by decade; thus, the 1970s chapter is called "Beachhead," the '80s is "Securing the Perimeter" and the '90s is "Breakthrough." She investigates the barriers women like The Sting producer Julia Phillips came up against and lauds the accomplishments of Mimi Leder, who directed The Peacemaker. Dense and very thorough, Gregory's work will be important to those in the fields of film studies and women's studies. Photos. (June)
