Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
The go-to choice for both film geeks and casual couch potatoes.
San Francisco Chronicle
The best of the bunch.
Esquire
The single most important reference book in every home.
Library Journal

First published in 1969 as an outgrowth of Maltin's self-published serial Film Fan Monthly, this stout, newly updated paperback edition adds more than 300 paragraph-long review entries to its 17,000 succinct qualitative summaries. Rated on the star system, the films are organized alphabetically by title. Listings appear to be current only to mid-2007, since prominent films like No Country for Old Men, released in November 2007, are absent. Prefacing the book is an alphabetized contact list of distributors that specialize in rare movies. A lengthy index of stars and their movies rounds out the book. Recommended for public libraries and film collections.
