Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this companion volume to his Hispanics and United States Film: An Overview and Handbook (LJ 12/94), Keller (regents professor, Univ. of Arizona) focuses on biography and filmography, including entries for actors, directors, and cinematographers active in the U.S. film industry from its beginnings to the present. The many Spanish-language films that have been made here are covered, but because the focus is U.S. films, one finds only very brief entries for some major foreign stars, e.g., the Mexican actor Cantinflas, whose career played out primarily in Mexico. Keller pays attention to the requirements of written Spanish, avoiding what he refers to as the "crimes against Spanish orthography" seen in other such works. The result is a high-quality reference tool that allows even those fluent in Spanish to concentrate on the information rather than on spelling. Keller plans future editions that will include additional performers and incorporate any needed corrections and revisions. Recommended for libraries owning the previous volume and for all film collections needing hard-to-find reference information.James E. Ross, WLN, Seattle
