Blacks in American Film and Television: An Encyclopedia

Blacks in American Film and Television: An Encyclopedia

by Taylor and Francis, Bogle

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A long overdue work, this one-man reference, highlighted by critical syntheses and the author's opinions, devotes sections to movies, television, and people profiles. Not that this is a quirky critical work; Bogle finds worth in nearly everyone's career and almost every movie or TV show, save some of the so-called ``blaxploitation'' product. Bogle provides basic production credits on movies and television shows and extensive detail in the profiles. Despite a few omissions ( Across 110th Street , Finian's Rainbow , Godfrey Cambridge), this is highly recommended. Thomas Wiener, formerly with ``American Film,'' Washington, D.C.
