Review

"the author has obviously done his homework, is careful to ask intelligent questions and doesn't clutter things up with nonsensical chatter. [This work] fits well on the shelf with the other four volumes" -- American Cinematographer

Format: Library Binding
Tom Weaver's been doing these interview books for quite a few years now, and he has his technique down to an Art. All I can say is that if you liked any of the previous books in this series, or have read any of Tom Weaver's other interviews, or his film writing, you won't be dissapointed.
As always, Weaver seems to know just what words to ask each interviewee to elicit the most informative response. Many of Mr. Weaver's interviews may be the last recorded comments from some of his subjects. Tom is to be applauded for getting to many of these people before they have passed on.
A personal aside here, I knew Les Baxter through correspondence and a few phone calls back in the early to mid-1970's, and sadly, the brilliant, friendly, gifted and charming composer that I knew was near the end of his life when the interview was conducted. Tragically (of course, this is not Mr. Weaver's fault), not much of the greatness of this brilliant man makes it through the pain and great ill health that Les suffered in his last year or two.
It is, of course, just this sort of problem that makes Mr. Weaver's interview books so worthwhile, he is really trying to preserve some of the memory and personality of these unique people, and, for that, and his great success in doing so, I salute Tom Weaver. This is a wonderful book.

Another compilation of Tom Weaver very interesting interviews for all Sci Fi/Horror Movie fans and collectors.
Tom covers interviews with some greats (and some not so well known contributors) for the much appreciative Sci Fi/Horror fan.
All interviews in Tom's pre published articles are combined in another great read which is a must buy for all us fans of the genre.
Thanks to Tom and McFarland publishing.
