About the author (1989)

Gene Shalit is one of America's most popular movie critics and anthologists of humor. It would be difficult to find another personality who has appeared on the same daily network TV show for thirty straight years, which is Shalit's still-continuing record on NBC's Today. He lives in Western Massachusetts with Fellini D. Katt, named to resonate with feline, film, and Shalit's friend and hero, the late Italian director.
Shalit prefers pasta to popcorn but advocates eating neither at the movies.
