Description : Best remembered for the iconic classics Gone with the Wind (1939) and The Wizard of Oz (1939) to the silver screen, Victor Fleming also counted successful films such as Red Dust (1932), Captains Courageous (1937), Test Pilot (1939), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), and the groundbreaking Joan of Arc (1948) among his more than forty directing credits. One of the most sought-after directors in Hollywood's golden age, Fleming (1889--1949) was renowned for his ability to make films across a wide range of genres. In Victor Fleming: An American Movie Master, author Michael Sragow paints a comprehensive portrait of the talented and charismatic man who helped create enduring screen personas for stars such as Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, and Gary Cooper.

Description : The complete, definitive biography of Hollywood's first superstar Douglas Fairbanks was the greatest leading man of his generation—the first and the best of the swashbucklers. He made some of the greatest films of the silent era, including The Thief of Bagdad, Robin Hood, and The Mark of Zorro. With Charlie Chaplin, D. W. Griffith, and his wife, film star Mary Pickford, he founded United Artists. Pickford and Fairbanks ruled Hollywood as its first king and queen for a decade. Now a cache of newly discovered love letters from Fairbanks to Pickford form the centerpiece of the first truly definitive biography of Hollywood's first king, the original Robin Hood, the true Zorro, the man who did his own stunts, built his own studio, and formed a company that allowed artists to distribute their own wealth outside the studio system. Fairbanks was fun, witty, engaging, creative, athletic, and a force to be reckoned with. He shaped our idea of the Hollywood hero, and it has never been the same since. His story, like his movies, is full of passion, bravado, and romance.

Description : Founded in 1935, The Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film and Media is home to one of the most important film archives in the world. The collections include over twenty thousand works, from the earliest movies to the most contemporary moving picture art - from a twenty-seven-second film made by W.K.L. Dickson and William Heise in 1893 to video art and media works by artists such as Chris Marker, Pipilotti Rist, and Joan Jonas. Here, for the first time, is a volume that celebrates this remarkable archive, with over five hundred images from individual films, drawn largely from the Museum's collection of still photographs. Special sections detail significant collections, including those of works by Andy Warhol and Joseph Cornell, of films starring Douglas Fairbanks, and of films produced by the Edison and Biograph companies, two of the world's first commercial film producers. An introduction by Steven Higgins, Curator in the Department of Film and Media, outlines the history of the Museum's collections and gives some insight into how The Museum of Modern Art goes about fulfilling its mandate: acquiring, preserving, and exhibiting these extraordinary and singular works, which form such a large part of the history of the moving image.

Description : John Howard Reid's books are not only noted for the wealth of essential information he provides on each film he discusses, but for the insight and clarity of his reviews. Reid has been reviewing films professionally since 1955, and has contributed an enormous amount of material to newspapers and magazines in England, France, Australia and the USA. In the course of his work, Reid has come into contact with many famous stars and directors, and is often able to provide quotes and information that no other sources can duplicate. As a reviewer for one of Reid's previous books rightly pointed out, "Nobody does it better than John Howard Reid." In fact, Reid often provides far more information than the titles of his books suggest. "140 All-Time Must-See Movies" is a typical case. The book actually provides full details and reviews for 160 feature films plus brief comments on over 30 shorts.
