Hollywood Movie Musicals and More Movie Musicals by John Howard Reid
By John Howard Reid   
Rated "G" by the Author.

"Hollywood Movie Musicals: Great, Good & Glamorous" (to give the book its full title) has proved a bestselling item in Amazon's Kindle store; yet its sequel, "More Movie Musicals: 100 Best Films plus 20 'B' Pictures" has received only a fraction of that support. Why?

More Movie Musicals

Currently "Hollywood Movie Musicals" rates number 17 in sales in Amazon's "Musicals" category, number 58 in "Movies & Video Reference", and number 61 in "Movies & Video Guides".

In contrast, "More Movie Musicals" rates nowhere.

True, the printed book, "Hollywood Movie Musicals" has also sold more copies than its sequel, but it has been on sale for a longer period of time.

It was always my intention to publish two books on this subject. You just can't fit all the great Hollywood musicals into 270 large format pages of text and photos. You need at least twice as many!

Both Kindle editions were published at the same time, and they retail for the same $4.99 price. Both have 245 pages of text.

However, I consider "More Movie Musicals" to be the equal of my other book for both Kindle users and movie musical fans generally.

Detailed in "More Movie Musicals" are not only some of the all-time great film musicals such as "An American in Paris", "The Band Wagon", "Calamity Jane", "Deep in My Heart", "The Emperor Waltz", "The Great Caruso", "Footlight Parade", "The Great Caruso" and "South Pacific", but some of the most enjoyable "B" movies of the genre, like Frankie Laine's "When You're Smiling", Kay Kyser's "That's Right, You're Wrong" and Jimmy Durante's wonderful "Hollywood Party".
