If you're a keen fan of Hollywood poster art, this book will also prove of great appeal. The index of films actually occupies only 60 of the book's 210 pages. The other 150 pages house a collection of more than 250 vintage Hollywood posters, chiefly from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.
True, aside from the book's full color front and back cover, all the posters are reproduced in black-and-white, but they still look mighty appealing, particularly those reproduced on a full large-format page.
