    Highly recommended for the movie aficionado.

    Marvelous reference for the cross-word puzzler and those trying to remember long-ago movies with old "what's his name." The listing of stars and their appearances is an invaluable cross-check placing who was in what and what year was that?

    Also contains a brief review of all the old movies popping up on TV so you can figure out what you want to watch and what to avoid.

    A definite plus for your collection!!

    New modern edition and the font is easier to read according to my husband. Not been disappointed when buying Maltin's books. Great feature in the back of the book is a listing of what movies famous actors have appeared in!! Great consistency in his editions, except now only difference now is the Classics are in separate edition!!
