About this product
- DescriptionLong recognized as the definitive reference work on the hundreds of science fiction movies that from 1950 through 1962 terrified and fascinated a generation with zombified teenagers, robots, invading aliens and monsters of every kind, Bill Warren's Keep Watching the Skies! is greatly expanded in this 21st Century Edition. With new entries on several films, it also revisits, revises and expands the commentary on every film in the 1982 and 1986 two-volume edition. In addition to a detailed plot sypsis, cast and credit listings, and an overview of each film's critical reception, Warren delivers richly informative assessments of the films and a wealth of insights and anecdotes about their making, often drawing on remarks by the filmmakers that have emerged in the quarter century since the original edition. The book is arranged by film title, contains 273 photographs, has seven useful appendices, and concludes with an ermous index.
- Author BiographyBill Warren ( sci- completist extraordinaire -Joe Dante) has written and contributed to many books and articles and for ten years was the Hollywood correspondent for a French television series. He has long been active in the Los Angeles Science Fiction/Fantasy Society and he and his wife Beverly live in Los Angeles. Film Quarterly (40:4) gave thanks to Warren's extraordinary ability to tap and release, in the reader's memory, intense...memory-impressions. He knows exactly which scenes to describe, in order to yank us, Proust-like, into the past. Research associate Bill Thomas is a lead reference librarian and lives in Lancaster, California.
