Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent behind the scenes info about making the movie 'Hugo' "The Hugo Movie Companion" is an excellent behind-the-scenes book about making the movie 'Hugo'. Selznick has brief one and two page essays on the time period of the movie, the historical background of movie making, and the people who are needed to make the movie. Not just the principal actors, but the technical people and what they do are described. The last chapter is an essay on how the last two minutes of the movie was filmed. There were lots of pictures throughout the book. This was a fun and informative read.
