When I first found this book, I was excited to see the 'featured' couples that Turner Classic Movies would come up with to showcase and I can fully say that it does not disappoint. The book is great because, while it contains the famous screen teams like Bogart and Bacall and Tracy and Hepburn, it also throws in a few that only made one memorable movie together. It would be great if TCM would come out with a second edition of this book complete with more great couples - if only for the beautiful photos and great insider information.
