If you're a movie or television fan - how many of these questions can you answer?

  • What was the last picture show in The Last Picture Show?
  • Where was the stagecoach headed in Stagecoach?
  • What was the name of the dinosaur bone in Bringing Up Baby?
  • What did Gomer Pyle do before he entered the Marines?
  • Who played Gentle Ben?

  • Like The Book of Answers, this book answers hundreds of questions in one of the New York Public LIbrary Telephone Reference Service's most popular areas - film and television. It covers the biggest stars, breakthrough productions, famous on-and-off-screen incidents, and film and TV history and trivia.

    Movies and TV: The New York Public Library Book of Answers is both informative and entertaining - a treasure trove of fascinating movie and TV facts, a perfect companion to The Book of Answers, and a real treat for movie and TV fans.

    From Library Journal:

    Did you know that in 1913 Mabel Normand started the first pie fight in a movie? That the Academy Award statuette "Oscar" was named after someone's uncle? That in the 1960s the Lone Ranger and Tonto advertised Jeno's Pizza Rolls? These and other unusual facts were culled from the files of the New York Public Library's Telephone Reference Service. A diverse selection of neatly categorized trivia is presented in question-answer style--covering topics ranging from horror movies to comedy, directors to sitcoms, children's TV to soap operas. Not intended as an in-depth work, this book is pure entertainment and will delight the casual movie and TV buff. For circulating libraries.
