A great reference book for film buffs
I learned of the existence of this book on Imdb, when desperately searching for information on John Sturges for a book I was writing (the book is this one: anobii.com/books/John_Sturges/014ecf89d6f4c6c8ee ). This marvellous dictionary had the longest biography so far published on Sturges in the English language: 6 fact-filled pages. All the directors listed in here were born before 1920 and well launched in their careers before 1945, while the others are in the second volume, that I don't own a copy of yet. The entries carefully assemble tons and tons of information gathered from papers, books and many different sources and this Dictionary is a precious tool for anyone who loves, researches or studies filmmaking.
