This unique treasury provides information on close to 2,000 stars and the movies that they made -- from the early silent films to today.

While watching movies, we sometimes wonder about other roles played by the stars. The question of whether or not an actor or actress was in a specific film often leads to spirited debate. With The Film Lover's Companion in your library, the answers to such questions are at your fingertips!

For each star, old or new, there is a concise biography and complete chronological list of all movie and TV appearances. Included are triumphs and disasters alike-as well as Academy Award nominations and winners. Each entry is accompanied by a photograph of the star at the height of his or her career or in a typical role.

Both the old and the new of cinema are found within these pages: Bette Davis, William Powell, Marlene Dietrich, John Wayne, Carole Lombard, Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, Robin Williams, Winona Ryder, Kevin Costner, and Christopher Walken, among hundreds of others. From the obscure (Gloria Talbott) to the mega-famous (Tom Cruise), the award winners (Tom Hanks)to the never-nominated (Steven Segal), the classics (Buster Keaton) to the luminaries of today (Jim Carrey) -- the careers of all are detailed within these pages.

The Film Lover's Companion is the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference book on movie stars available: one hundred years of cinematic history. Unrivaled as a source of dates, facts, and titles, it makes for compulsively enjoyable reading.
