Also included is a yearbook of the stars and directors from the movies described.

Hollywood Picks The Classics includes plot synopses, casts and crews, famous quotes, trivia, facts about the stars and awards, and behind-the-scenes gossip. But what makes this book unique are the dozens of personal top-ten favorite lists from Hollywood stars, directors, and writers.

Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of pictures, many of which have never been seen, jam-packed with information, and with an introduction by screen legend Esther Williams, Hollywood Picks The Classics is an entertaining and visually exciting guide for the film novice as well as the film buff.
