Synopsis: Featuring an extra-sturdy library binding!
Here is a spectacular and informative new guide to the history and magic of the movies. Stunning real-life photographs of cameras, projectors, stars and studios offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the development of movies and the making of films. See the earliest cameras, the luxurious first picture palaces, Charlie Chaplin's original tramp costume, stars from the silent screen to the present day, and a real Oscar. Learn how still pictures can be made to move, how the sound track works, what a praxinoscope does, how explosions are created on a film set, and how a model dog comes to life. Discover the secrets of special effects, the many different faces of screen makeup, the story of animation, how a film finally appears in your theater, the techniques used to film Star Wars, and much, much more.
Product Description: Full-color photos.

The "multiple visuals are eye-catching, impressive, and accurate."-- School Library Journal.
