Format: Hardcover
If you enjoy watching or just knowing about cinema, this book is for you. For those of us that are old enough to remember, we are whisked back to what we were doing at the time and remember the impact of the first of a series or the first of a new technique. For the rest of us it gives us the backgrounds that we did hot have the privilege of seeing first hand.
Being divided into years makes it easy to retrieve information and to view what was going on at the same time.

The book its self looks like a collection of newspaper articles and posters of the time of each movie. You can not get this information from some cheap cinema magazine.

For those people who are too impatient or that browsing drives them up the wall there is a comprehensive Contents and Index; includes are special features such as "The Oscar Story" and "
Special Effects: Tricks of the Trade."

They seem to have left out a few of my favorites yet; I am just having fun reading the blurbs. The have everything from "Laura" to "Total Recall"

Having an Associate Degree in Film Making from the nineties, I wish I had at the time this book at hand. It contains more or less everything you want to know about the movie film.It is easy reading and enticing. Very hard to put down as it is so interesting.
As I write this I have just heard Ingmar Bergman has died so I devote this little review to one of the most important directors in the history of film.

Not just Russell but all the stars! Not the best book maybe but as a RC fan I enjoyed the nice clippings and the full page photos of the BEAUTIFUL MIND and GLADIATOR movie posters. This is a collection of press releases, I guess is the best way to put it, and very good resource material but not a book you just sit down and read through. A pick and choose type book.

This book is an excellent review of the oscars year by year. I recommend it to anyone interested in the movies as a business. It is also a good history book.
