About this title


A fixture in Roger Ebert's Video Companion, the Glossary of Movie Terms has attempted to identify and label those cliches and inevitable developments that become wearying to the faithful movie lover. To that end, Ebert and loyal fans have penned wit-filled terms to create a virtual lexicon of the inane in film.

Product Description:

Provides humorous definitions and descriptions for cliche scenes and gimmicks used in motion pictures.

Store Description

Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
