about this book

The Academy Award-winning filmmaker recommends 52 classic films (all available on video), to be viewed on a weekly basis for one full year. From timeless musicals to powerful dramas and thrillers, to legendary masterpieces and neglected treasures to sparkling comedies and landmark foreign films, each choice is accompanied by an illuminating essay which discusses the film's background, its stars and its place in film history, and followed by a list of tie-in recommendations.
