Few people would argue with the films selected for detailed notices and reviews in this book. Many of the movies are award-winners, and most chalked up impressive figures at the box-office. Who would dispute the inclusion of "Citizen Kane" or "Rebecca" or "The Best Years of Our Lives"? However, along with "The Yearling" and "Reap the Wild Wind" and "Hello, Frisco, Hello", I've also included a few surprises. "A magnificent publication." -- Rodney Bourke in International Movie Making (April 2006).

    "What Makes a Cinema Classic?" What makes a cinema classic? I’d answer: Popularity! Especially present-day popularity. That definition puts "Citizen Kane" top of the heap. With critics and fans, this seminal movie has rated number one for many years. 2008 is no exception. Movies that likewise have always enjoyed a considerable cult following but have lately gained in recognition include: "Algiers", "All That Money Can Buy", "Anna and the King of Siam", "Bird of Paradise", "Blithe Spirit", "Blood and Sand", "Body and Soul", "The Canterville Ghost", "Cover Girl", "Dixiana", "A Double Life", "Five Graves to Cairo", "49th Parallel", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", "Frenchman’s Creek", "Gaslight", "George Washington Slept Here", "The Grapes of Wrath", "The Great McGinty", "The...

All the movies are not only reviewed in depth, but detailed with full cast and behind-the-camera credits, plus release and other background information. Of course, one of the reasons for the continuing or new-found popularity of these films lies in the fact that many have lately been televised or have been re-issued on DVD.< Less
