1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
$35.00
This brand-new edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die covers more than a century of movie history. Every film profile is packed with details including the director and cast, a plot summary and production notes, and little-known facts relating to the film's history. Is it any wonder this intensely readable book has sold more than 1.5 million copies world wide?

Chronicling the complete history of filmmaking, this important survey dates back to silent-era sensations such as D. W. Griffith's controversial The Birth of a Nation and the immortal Little Tramp movies of Charlie Chaplin. It then covers blockbusters of the more recent past like Gone with the Wind, A Clockwork Orange, Avatar, and The Black Swan. Also described are Hollywood's most memorable musicals, great dramas, screwball comedies, experimental "New Wave" films from 1950s and '60s Europe, major films noir, classic westerns, action and adventure films, and outstanding documentaries.

This all-new edition has been updated with:

  • 50 new films
  • 200 new images
  • Key quotations from the movies
  • More movie posters than ever
  • New interesting facts and movie trivia

    For students of cinema, discerning film buffs, DVD collectors, and readers who simply enjoy reminiscing over cherished screen moments, the 5th edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is a must-have compilation of film knowledge.
