Overview

This is the most comprehensive reference work available anywhere, ever, to (1) films and their directors, and (2) directors and their films. Part one is by director. Each entry lists films, years of release, alternate titles, and, when appropriate, the director's pseudonym. Part two is a listing of over 108,000 films (from A, directed by Jan Lenica, to Zyte, from Rene Leprince), giving a director for each.

In this two-way index, part 1 lists directors with all their known films in chronological order, and part 2 lists each film with its attributed director More than 108,000 films released around the world between 1895 and 1990 are listed. Cartoon movies are included, for example, KoKo's adventures and Japanese cartoon features. All known titles for a film are given, including different languages or alternative titles. The year of film release is the only other piece of information provided, so, for example, readers looking for a film entitled "Hope" will find five entries differentiated only by director and date. The compiler does not list his sources of information, and the list is not comprehensive. For example, "The Peanut Butter Solution", a sf movie of the 1950s, is not listed Because the range of information given is very narrow, this specialized title will not appeal to the typical film fan but should prove useful for film scholars.
