Synopsis: An encyclopedic listing of more than 2,400 feature films in which a performer, director, designer, or composer was nominated for or received an Academy Award offers detailed and insightful synopses of each film and behind-the-scenes gossip.

From Booklist: From A Nous la Liberte to Zorba the Greek, this book describes and analyzes every film that has been nominated for an Academy Award since its inception in 1927 to the latest ceremony in 1995. Entries are in alphabetical order by film title and numbered. Each entry includes the production company, film studio, and date of release, followed by a list of awards received and nominations. A synopsis of the plot is included, as well as occasional biographical information and critical remarks by the author. There are cross-references to other films (by number) both in the entry and in a list at the end of the entry. The author also tells which films actually won the awards for which the film described was nominated. The entries range from less than 100 words (Captain Fury) to more than a page (West Side Story).

An alphabetical index of all persons nominated for awards cites the entry numbers for the films, with references to awards received in boldface type. It includes winners of the Irving G. Thalberg, Jean Hersholt, and other special or honorary awards. A second appendix lists all the nominees and awards by year. This appendix has extensive footnotes about the history of categories and judging. Matthews, a professional film critic, has an obvious love of movies. Although there is a disclaimer on the cover that this work "is neither authorized nor endorsed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences," he did extensive research in its library. The critical and analytical information is engaging reading for the movie enthusiast.

Several other books treat Academy Award^-winning films. The Academy Awards Index [RBB F 1 94] lists nominees and winners by year and by award. The Oscar Movies [RBB Ap 1 94] is similar to Oscar A to Z but includes only the 600 films that won awards. Public libraries that need another book on this perennially popular topic will want to purchase Oscar A to Z.
