With entries spanning across the decades, this comprehensive guide has expanded star and director indexes, and capsule reviews of obscure and forgotten-the sort that turn up on Turner Classic Movies in the wee hours of the morning. This is the perfect companion for anyone who loves the thrill of discovering vintage movies on DVD or cable.
