By tvtv3 TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 14, 2004
Format: Hardcover
THEIR FIRST TIME IN THE MOVIES takes a look at movie stars from 1900-mid 1980s and examines the first time they acted in the movies. Stars discussed include Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, Dustin Hoffman, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Jack Lemmon, Robert DeNiro, and John Travolta among many others. Most of the actors in the book have one page devoted to their lives and their first time in the movies. The book is a solid hard-cover book and includes some interesting pieces of cinematic trivia.
This book also includes a video and DVD. The video and DVD contain somewhat different material than the book, but the two forms of media themselves are identical in content. Basically, the video/DVD is a documentary of several famous stars from the 1900s-the late 1970s. It briefly discusses each star and shows clips from their first motion pictures.
This is a great gift for any average movie fan. Granted much of the material can be found in other sources, but this set brings a lot of that stuff together fairly nicely.
