Following the same successful formula as The Art Book, The Photography Book and The Fashion Book, The Movie Book is an A-Z guide to 500 celebrated individuals who have made a landmark contribution to the medium of film. The entire industry is represented - from actors and directors to costume designers and special-effects wizards; from major movie moguls and pioneers of the silent screen to some of today's most worshipped idols. Packed with absorbing details and rich with history, all genres of cinema are included - from Hollywood blockbusters to French New Wave; from groundbreaking science-fiction films to animation classics; and from screwball comedies to film-noir thrillers. Each entry is evocatively illustrated with a high-quality film still, photograph or cinematic sequence; each is also accompanied by an authoritative text that reveals the significance of each name within the history of film. In addition, The Movie Book uses a comprehensive cross-referencing system and glossary to guide the reader through the complexities of the motion-picture industry.
