The book is arranged by film title, contains 273 photographs, has seven useful appendices, and concludes with an enormous index.

Bill Warren ("sci-  completist extraordinaire"-Joe Dante) has written and contributed to many books and articles and for ten years was the Hollywood correspondent for a French television series. He has long been active in the Los Angeles Science Fiction/Fantasy Society and he and his wife Beverly live in Los Angeles. Film Quarterly (40:4) gave "thanks to Warren's extraordinary ability to tap and release, in the reader's memory, intense...memory-impressions. He knows exactly which scenes to describe, in order to yank us, Proust-like, into the past."



Research associate Bill Thomas is a lead reference librarian and lives in Lancaster, California.
