Overview

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Seemingly everyone involved in the making of this award-winning movie provides detailed, informal yet informative comments on every aspect of its design and production, and the impact that it has had on American society. Steven Spielberg opens with an introduction on the idea of the film and is quoted throughout. Teens will be drawn to the hundreds of photographs, many in color, that make up at least half of the book. Some are stills from the movie, but many are behind-the-scenes shots and have never before been published. All illustrations relate to the adjacent text and help to tell the story. The screenplay, with the scenes added to the 2002 version, is also included. Bits of trivia sprinkled throughout add to the fun.-Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
