First of all, I hope you own Andrew Sarris' "The American Cinema: Directors And Directions, 1929-1968".
If you don't, you need it. Real bad.
I also would recommend Sarris' "Confessions Of A Cultist: On The Cinema, 1955/1969"
And I highly recommend Robin Wood's book-length study of the films of Howard Hawks called "Howard Hawks".
And also Wood's "Hollywood From Vietnam To Reagan. . . And Beyond."
These are all very interesting.
