Fields monster movies with Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman cartoons with Woody Woodpecker, Chilly Willy, and Mighty Mouse westerns with Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, and James Stewart travelogues of the world's picturesque places newsreels of major headline stories musicals with top singers and bandleaders.Collectors have always wanted a reference book detailing the total output of Castle Films.

For handy reference, there are separate indexes by title, subject, and serial number, a listing of Castle's color film releases, and a special section "decoding" Castle's various pseudonym titles and disclosing the "true identities" of many films.Castle Films: A Hobbyist's Guide is a fascinating, nostalgic look at one of the pioneers of home entertainment.
