For thousands of years, animals have been used in entertainments, most often as wild beasts to be pitted against one another or whipped into submission by tamers. Fortunately, the advent of film has widened these roles in ways that reflect our love and fascination of our fellow creatures. This sweet collection of essays discloses behind-the-camera stories of the interplay and affection between animal actors, human counterparts, directors, and trainers. The "stars" of the books include dogs, cats, penguins, horses, birds and cats; but also Julia Roberts, Ewan MacGregor, and Stephen Spielberg. A joy for animal lovers and film buffs alike.
