Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Designed according to the way people choose rental selections at a video store, this book is divided into 12 classifications: action/adventure, classics, comedy, cult films, etc.; and then is further divided into subclassifications and checklists of stars and directors. Its intent is to help the person who enjoys a certain type of film to find others like it, so this is a handy item for an individual to own. Movies are listed by title with date of release, note of color or black and white, running time, MPAA rating, annotation, and an occasional recommendation. Skillfully organized and indexed, this work could be used for collection development and simple reference questions in libraries that already have Leonard Maltin's TV Movies and Video Guide (NAL Bks.) and Halliwell's Film and Video Guide (Scribner's), both annuals. Arthur Bargar, Milford P.L., Ct.
More usefully indexed than the usual directory. Under the science fiction heading are to be found sub-topics such as family, spectacular sets, Oscar winning special effects, future cops and robbers, Japanese.... Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
