Leonard Maltin inspired a good many people from my generation in the field of classic film. His books introduced me to so many people and things I'd not yet heard of, and his love for classic film jumped off of every page. Then he became a mainstream personality and some of us die-hards felt that we'd lost our champion. Well, hear ye, hear ye....Leonard is back with a book that will delight enthusiasts of all things "old movie". Here is a collection of articles which were originally featured in his quarterly publication of the same name. I had a difficult time putting the book down, and my only wish is that the next volume is even better. Thanks Leonard and welcome back to the fold (or should I say, old?).

Maltin has found very interesting people for his book. They have great stories about film-making and persons working in them. If you love classic films, this is must for you. The book does not contain only interviews, but also good articles about film-making. I myself do not care about musicals at all, but for those who do this book contains much valuable information. I hope Maltin will put together an another great book.

Well done and informative. Truly for the movie buff, even if not a crazy one.
As usual, the true movie aficionado, Leonard Maltin does an interesting and fact filled job managing to insert those little nuggets of knowledge which make following movies and all their component parts such a fascinating pastime.

I ordered this book for my nephew. He had been asking for it. It is, supposedly, like the bible for movie lovers.

More a curio than must read but chock full of interesting tidbits about films plus actors from the glory days of Hollywood. The whistle stop train tours were basically an invitation for stars to drink but they were also extremely successful. Nice interviews along with some photos I'd never seen before. Really hammers home the extreme power studios and more importantly, the studio boss had over huge stars.
