Ross Adams in "Dress Circle" Feb. 2011:
Another essential book for the film buff's library, this book, at a little over A5 size, is smaller than previous books in the series.
Nonetheless, its 343 pages are packed with information and reviews on classic films.
The index section takes up 130 pages. The remaining 213 pages are filled with essential information on some 88 movie classics.
Not as many photos in this edition, but some of the reviews are quite extensive.
John Howard Reid provides all the information you need for classic movies, including complete cast and production staff. For "The Ten Commandments", for instance, Reid devotes over nine pages. The cast list alone takes up four pages.
Probably all the great stars of yesteryear are represented by one or more movies in this book.
