A completely revised and udpated edition of the classic film reference which has sold nearly 150,000 copies in its previous editions.
Ephraim Katz's The Film Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive one–volume encyclopedia on film and is considered the undisputed Bible of the movie industry. With up–to–date additions, this fifth edition features more than 7,000 A–Z entries on the artistic, technical, and commercial aspects of moviemaking, including:
– Directors, producers, stars, screenwriters, and cinematographers
– Styles, genres, and schools of filmmaking
– Motion picture studios and film centers
– Film–related organizations and events
– Industry jargon and technical terms
– Inventions, inventors, and equipment
– Plus, an index of Academy Award winning films and artists, top grossing films, and much more.
Well-written, user-friendly, and bursting with essential data, famous stories, and terrific trivia, this book is the most intelligent and accessible film companion available, a must for every movie lover. Its chief assets are its in-depth entries on actors, directors, writers, cinematographers, composers, and editors, which come complete with date and place of birth as well as an extensive filmography. You can also read the cinematic history of every major film-producing country; look up technical terms like "boom," "dolly," and "Steadicam"; and find the meaning of those illusive phrases that appear so often in movie credits, assignations like "gaffer," "key grip," and "best boy." Whatever the extent of your movie knowledge, whether you're a burgeoning cineaste or a long-time expert, you'll find yourself turning to this superb volume again and again. --Raphael Shargel
