From the introduction: "But where The Film Index and the six volumes of The New York Times Film Reviews were conceived as primarily for film scholarship, and to be used as library reference works, this New York Times Directory of the Film has been pointed to that rising generation of film buffs who can name all the actors who ever played Charlie Chan, and throw in their Number One Sons for good measure. Essentially, the Directory is an enlargement of the original Index to the reviews, with such 'extras' as up-datings of The Times' annual 'Ten Best' lists (from 1924) , the Academy Award winners (from 1927, and the New York Film Critics' Award selections (from 1935) - plus a reproduction of the Times' original review of each of the winning pictures. Carried over from the Index is the Portrait Gallery, with photos of around 2,000 stars, starlets and child actors, and also the Personal Name and Corporate Indexes." SR900OS; 1243 pages

4 Aldgate, Anthony & Jeffrey Richards Britain Can Take It: the British Cinema in the Second World War.
Oxford Basil Blackwell 1986 0631135499 / 9780631135494 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
312 pages, illustrations, cloth, dust jacket, former owner's embossed label otherwise fine. From Publishers Weekly: "Aldgate and Richards, university lecturers in history in England, have written an instructive study of how documentary filmmakers, most notably Humphrey Jennings, Paul Rotha, Pat Jackson and Harry Watt, gave British film its true identity during World War II. Though regarded as inferior by the Ministry of Information, which directly influenced wartime British film content, these filmmakers made an impact on the course of even the most commercial movies. The authors discuss 11 key films by such filmmakers as Leslie Howard, Noel Coward, David Lean and Carol Reed that most aptly captured the sentiments and meaning of the war. Not only did the MoI accept the ideas of the documentarians, but mainstream filmmakers also incorporated the realism of documentaries in their work. A scholarly book, it is an excellent narrative as well, and although incomplete given its length, this is a highly recommended study." ; 9.40 X 6.70 X 1.10 inches; 312 pages

149 pages, well illustrated, yellow pictorial wrappers, normal shelf wear to covers otherwise very good. From Library Journal: "Betrock's study of the teen exploitation film is smart, fun, and well researched. Although the emphasis is on the "renaissance" of these B-pictures, Betrock traces the genre all the way back to the silents. Included is an overview, essays, snippets of critical reviews of the day, and annotated filmographies of such delights as High School Hell Cats and Sex Kittens Go To College . The lurid movie posters and reprinted newspaper ads spread generously over the pages are hilarious. For those without Michael Weldon's The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film (Ballantine, 1983) , this entry is recommended for YA and large film collections." ; 10.60 X 8.30 X 0.40 inches; 149 pages
