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
