This volume brings current the base volume (1977) with in-depth study of some 400 movies, from the very best to the most contemptible. While the emphasis is on films released since 1977, many older titles are also included. The book ranges from features to serials, TV movies, and foreign releases.

This belated sequel is even more important than the same author's first volume ( LJ 9/15/77), which predated Star Wars/ET/Close Encounters and the films they inspired. This book also fills in that volume's omissions. Information on some 400 films (and updated TV and radio listings) yields credits, detailed cast lists, synopses, quotes from contemporary reviews and genre encyclopedias, brief critical evaluations, and entertaining film buff-y tidbits. There are a few nitpicky errors, and the quality of the entries unavoidably varies somewhat, but generally the level of scholarship is high, as it usually is for all the products emanating from the veteran Parish/Pitts reference book "factory," in part because they are, and utilize other, crackerjack researchers. Highly recommended.
