This best-selling encyclopedia is the definitive Who’s Who of cinema, with everything you will ever need to know about major and behind-the-scenes players. It’s packed with biographical profiles of actors and actresses, directors, producers, editors, and other key figures. "Halliwell’s Who’s Who in the Movies" also features filmographies, entries on the major studios and the foreign film industry, a history of the cinema, and information on all the major film awards, including a list of Oscar winners and nominations. Opinionated, witty, and packed with more information than any other film guide, it’s as wonderfully unclassifiable as it is impossible to put down.
