Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. More than any other film director, Roman Polanski has obsessively explored sexual mores in the mainstream of movies. But a Polanski movie isn't for the small-time art house crowd—they are big screen events, whether it is the atmosphere of terror in Rosemary's Baby or the reconstruction of forties film noir of Chinatown. Off-screen, Polanski has hit the headlines—his wife Sharon Tate was murdered by Charles Manson, and he was later accused of drugging and raping an underage girl which has made him a fugitive from the United States. This Pocket Essential explores the life of this world famous BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning director, reviews and analyzes each of his movies, and includes a handy multi-media reference section for further study.

From the Publisher:

Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are brief, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. In addition to an introduction to the subject, each topic is individually analyzed and reviewed, examining its impact on popular culture or history. There’s also a reference section that lists related web sites and weightier (and more expensive) books on the subject. For media buffs, students, and inquiring minds, these are great entry–level books that build into an essential library.

Review:

“These miniature guides are packed to the margins with important facts and enlightening commentary.” -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
