Featuring more than 100 still photographs from movies, as well as filmographies by year and genre, Sunshine in the Dark is an encyclopedic resource for movie fans and anyone interested in Florida popular culture.
Authors and historians, Fernandez and Ingalls have identified more than 300 films about Florida- many of them shot on location in the state- to analyze how filmmakers from the Marx Brothers and John Huston to Oliver Stone and Francis Ford Coppola have portrayed the state and its people. Sunshine in the Dark is the first complete study of how the movie industry has immortalized Florida's extraordinary scenery, characters, and history on celluloid.
