Format: Paperback
I was delighted to discover that the first book I've ever seen on legendary director John Landis was not only informative but really funny! Profusely illustrated, this book is really made up of long interviews with Landis and his collaborators including Dan Aykroyd, Elmer Bernstein, Harold Ramis, Chris Miller, Jamie Lee Curtis, B.B. King and many others. There are also essays about Landis movies by such fantastic filmmakers as David Cronenberg, Guillermo Del Toro, Sam Raimi, Frank Oz, Costa Gavras and many others. And articles by film critics Christopher Frayling, Dave Kehr, Bill Khron, and more. Even an interview that Landis did with Jack Arnold for CAHIERS DU CINEMA in the eighties. And I was amazed to find it so up to date it talks about Landis most recent documentary (which aired on HBO in December) MR. WARMTH, THE DON RICKLES PROJECT. An extremely well produced book with tons of photos and illustrations, most of which I had never seen before. A truly great surprise and one of the best movie related books I've ever bought.

Format: Paperback
First I must say that John Landis is by far one of the most enthusiastic film makers still around today. He has also directed some of my most favorite films, ANIMAL, HOUSE, BLUES BROTHERS, AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, to name a few. All great films and all extremely successful. I highly recommend this book as the text is great but the photos are ever better as they are not your normal press packet shots, but John's personal photos that no one has ever seen, truly inspiring.

I love this book and if you love film, you will go nuts for this amazing recap of one of my favorite film directors.

Yeah, actor Vic Morrow would have loved this book, if only he had survived making one of Landis's films. Too bad.
