From Library Journal
This is an ambitious, historical What's What (rather than Who's Who ) of world film, an admirable, similarly formatted companion to Slide's The American Film Industry: A Historical Dictionary (Greenwood, 1986). Alphabetical listings include countries; production and distribution companies; associations and unions; schools; archives; festivals; awards; theories; magazines; color systems; equipment; and even film characters and genres. The entries are succinct and sturdily written, many with bibliographies. Information is generally accurate, with a few omissions but some interesting esoterica. Once again Slide and his hard-working associates have made the work of film scholars, students, and teachers easier and maybe a bit more fun.
