1 Benayoun, Robert The Films of Woody Allen.
New York Harmony Books 1987 0517569280 / 9780517569283 Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
176 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , pictorial wrappers, 9 by 11-1/2 inches. Translated by Alexander Walker. First revised edition. From the publisher: "The Films of Woody Allen is a gorgeously illustrated appraisal of the genius behind these scenes, written by French film critic and director Robert Benayoun. Woody Allen's comedy looks so effortless that viewers have always found it easy to assume that Woody Allen the actor and Woody Allen the director were one and the same. Benayoun shows that in fact Allen is one of the most self-aware and accomplished living directors, who like Fellini, Bergman, and Antonioni is always testing the limits of the medium and grappling with important intellectual questions at the same time that he entertains. ~ In his stunning selection of more than 200 stills from Allen's movies and candids of the moviemaker at work, Banayoun adds a convincing fourth dimension to his arguments, absorbing readers in their memories of the films at the same time that he draws them into the details of Allen's technique.

2 Jeavons, Clyde A Pictorial History of War Films.
Secaucus, Nj, Citadel Press 1974 0806504269 / 9780806504261 First American Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
253 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. Special research by Mary Unwin. Picture research by John Kobal. Review from the Amazon website: "There are hundreds of movies listed, pictured and discussed in this book. The dicussion of each film is brief no doubt, but is examines each film with a critical eye and provides other contextual information. I must say though, that nearly every film described in this book, from "The 49th Parallel" to "The Guns at Batasi" is a classic in its own right. The author, Clyde Jeavons, was a curator at the British National Film and Television Archives at that time, and therefore had access to a huge collections of films. Mr. Jeavons really knows his stuff, and he has been active in British and International film institute circles to this day. The chapters of this book are organized by genre, from early films, to pre-WWII, to movies made during WWII, to post WWII films, including a few of the Korean and Vietnam wars. The book also includes foriegn war films, including a number Japanese and German ones." From the collection of Laurence Dring and with his business card "Soldier of fortune specializing in Civil Wars". From the Soldier of Fortune obituary by Jim Graves: "Lawrence W. Dring II, whose almost legendary career in Special Forces was described in a three-part Soldier of Fortune magazine series - February, March and April 1982 - died 25 August 1983 of a seizure and heart attack caused by complications from wounds he suffered in Vietnam. In four tours in Vietnam - most of it with MIKE Forces (Mobile Guerrilla Force) in the Central Highlands - Dring carved out a career as a soldier that frankly, I don't know who could match. Dring started out as an enlisted man and came out in 1968 as a captain. Along the way he earned, among other decorations, many of the medals grunts have respect for: two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars, two Soldier's Medals, the Cambodian Medaille Militaire, four Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry and five Purple Hearts." ; 253 pages
