The new edition of Halliwell’s unique and bestselling encyclopedia of the people in the movies. More than just a guide – it’s an essential, addictive and hugely enjoyable companion for anyone who enjoys films.
Halliwell’s Who’s Who in the Movies is the essential A–Z of the people in cinema. While Halliwell’s Film Guide is about films, the Who’s Who contains everything you will ever need to know about the players in them. Packed with comprehensive biographical profiles of actors and actresses, directors, producers, editors and other key personnel, as well as notes on the major studios, foreign cinema, cinematic themes and definitions of technical terms, this truly is a unique publication.
This new edition is completely revised and updated and includes more substantial biographies of the stars, a history of the cinema from 1894-1998, lists of Oscar winners and nominations through the years, details of all the major film festival awards, as well as over 1000 new entries on the famous – and not so famous – names in the movie industry.
