Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Focusing on 2009 cinema releases, Monush (Encyclopedia of Hollywood Film Actors) divides this annually published reference work into nine chapters, the broadest of which are devoted to domestic and foreign films, subdivided by A and B budgets. Movies are organized alphabetically by title, and entries are studded with black-and-white captioned film stills. Accompanying the photos are one-sentence plot synopses and details on production companies, crew, and cast members. Subsequent chapters offer photos of talented emerging actors, lists of Academy Award winners and nominees, brief biographies of 2500 living actors, and concise obituaries for stars who passed in 2009. An indispensable reference resource for film studies collections.
