Summary
"David Thomson's Biographical Dictionary of Film returns, with its old entries updated and 300 new ones - from Luc Besson to Reese Witherspoon - making more than 1300 in all, some of them just a pungent paragraph, some of them several thousand words long. In addition to the new "musts," Thomson has added key figures from film history - lively anatomies of Graham Greene, Eddie Cantor, Pauline Kael, Abbott and Costello, Noel Coward, Hoagy Carmichael, Dorothy Gish, Rin Tin Tin, and more.".
"Here is a rare book, one that encompasses the chaos of art, entertainment, money, vulgarity, and nonsense that we call the movies. Personal, opinionated, funny, daring, provocative, and passionate, it is the one book that every filmmaker and film buff must own."--BOOK JACKET.
