Format: Hardcover
And I mean that in a good way because if you're a B-movie science fiction fan, this will be your favorite "class". Bill Warren's magnus opus, "Keep Watching the Skies" is THE definite reference book on the science fiction movies made in the 1950's and into the early '60s. It is an inexhaustive review of every good, bad, and ugly movie from those two decades. Extensive research is at the heart of the book. This is an author who is seriously in love with this genre'. Warren has gleaned numerous unknown tidbits about the actors, sets, budgets, etc. from these great, but often underappreciated, B-movies.
Classic science fiction movie fans will be totally absorbed by the book. Best read in small chunks, it's almost impossible to put down! Warren not only provides an interesting and honest narrative of each of the films, but adds a chonological list of when the films were distributed and gives a separate synopsis of the films' plots, actors, directors, etc., in a different section of the book. A great index is available and can be of tremendous help when you're watching a midnight sci fi movie fest and can't remember that particular actor's name.
By all means, buy the 1997 printing of the book because it contains both volumes (1950-57 and 1958-62). It's a steal at any price.
