9780002572149: Halliwell's Who's Who in the Movies

Now in its 14th edition, this classic movie reference, formerly known as The Filmgoer's Companion, has informed and delighted film fans for more than 30 years. Opinionated, witty, and packed with more information per square inch than any other film guide, Halliwell's Who's Who in the Movies is as wonderfully unclassifiable as it is impossible to put down.

Who's Who remains a treasure trove of information on who's who and what's what in the movies. Its more than 11,000 entries illuminate the stars of yesterday and today, as well as the bit players and character actors, directors, producers, writers, cinematographers, composers, and all the other talent involved in making movies. You'll find sections on movie sequels, series, and remakes; themes and genres; technical terms; studios and production companies; cinema around the world; year-by-year listings of Oscar winners and other major awards; a brief history of the movies from their beginnings until today; and much more.

This thoroughly revised and updated edition features hundreds of new entries, and once again spices up the proceedings with scores of "quotable quotes," ranging from the revealing to the revolting, which, in addition to being exceedingly entertaining, add a human dimension missing from every other guide to the facts and figures. Upholding the outstanding tradition of Leslie Halliwell, editor John Walker delivers the lively humor and keen insight that have always been the hallmarks of Halliwell's.
