How many other people has this encyclopedia said was dead when they were really alive? This encyclopedia said Harold Russell was dead, but he is still alive.

The first edition of this extraordinary compendium of information on film makers...their personal as well as professional bios etc., was incredibly well researched, well balanced and comprehensive. Unfortunetly, the still young author, Ephrim Katz died shortly after publication before he had completed a companion volumn on the films themeselves. Since then, other people have written updated editions. However, although they don't acknowledge this, they deleted a number of selected entrants with each new edition. (For example, gone without a trace is Helen Broderic, the brilliant film comedian, whose performance in Rogers' and Astaires' 'TOP HAT' is legendary.) This is a nasty cheat. If possible, find a used copy of the first edition on a used book site, to complement this updated, but recklessly abridged new edition.(I leave it to the reader to deal with my spelling errors.)
