   I hope some may enjoy & or want to check these 2 "Movie Books" out-(NOTE: & as Ipreviously wrote, in my opinion they should have a running thread,etc on these, movie-memorabilia & all such great items!)

 

I already suggested these to another TCM-ITE on these great forums-(but won't divulge handle unless they want)

 

 1st  "The Great Stars: The Golden Years" (by David Shipman) I think it's out of print, but it's avaisble on amazon & "Harvest Books" which handles such books & a lot!)

It covers virtually all the "Studio-System Heavyweights" & many photos of all

I actually read this so much it came apart, no kiddin'

 

2nd "The Genius of the System" (By Thomas Schatz)-(It was also a great TCM documentary a few yrs ago)

 

2 "Must Have Cinema Books!"  Although not among my top 5 I own to date

 

 

THANK YOU :D

I'm pretty sure I own that book "The Great Stars" since I saw it on my bookshelf the other day while I was cleaning the room with my Swiffer for the first time in months.

 

I can also recommend "Did He or Didn't He" which is a goofy book but a lot of fun. Also "Va-Va Voom" which is about all the fun girls of films. I do have more serious books, like the series on each studio's entire output of films, and of course exposes on Dreyer, and Bunuel and "The Foreign Film Encyclopedia" so I think your idea of spotlighting film books here is a great idea, Spence!
