    Editorial Reviews

    Library Journal
    Did you know that in 1913 Mabel Normand started the first pie fight in a movie? That the Academy Award statuette ``Oscar'' was named after someone's uncle? That in the 1960s the Lone Ranger and Tonto advertised Jeno's Pizza Rolls? These and other unusual facts were culled from the files of the New York Public Library's Telephone Reference Service. A diverse selection of neatly categorized trivia is presented in question-answer style--covering topics ranging from horror movies to comedy, directors to sitcoms, children's TV to soap operas. Not intended as an in-depth work, this book is pure entertainment and will delight the casual movie and TV buff. For circulating libraries.--Carol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, N.J.
