As a warning I should mention this is a book by someone who loves true B movies. If you are one who thinks the term B Movie means bad movie and are expecting a book on the worst movies ever made, this is NOT for you. But if you are looking for a helpful reference book to help you decide which old films you'd like to add to your collection, this is simply the best book ever written.
The author's obvious love of the genre is apparent in every word. My copy, which falls apart more and more as I thumb through the loose, yellowing pages,(a paperback, you know) each time I gingerly take it down from the shelf, never fails to make me smile.
I recently purchased a boxed set of three 'Flash Gordon' serials (from Image Productions) and was amazed at the quality of the approximately 70 year old prints. Yes, the production is kind of cheesy, the acting is iffy but still, given the young audience they were made to please, they gave many hours of pleasure back then and to a somewhat lesser extent today. The set was worth it just to see 'Ming The Merciless' again. These are the kind of 'treasures' you find tucked into those gigantic out-of-copyright collections put out by MILLCREEK (and others).
There are many 'B' movies made these days ... they just don't call them that. Today the 'B' stands for 'Blockbuster'.
If you love the old 'B' Movies, you'll love this book.
