Quinlan's Film Stars based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I still find this book interesting and informative, even though it's around twenty years old now and out-of-date. I particularly like Quinlan's descriptions of some of the actors: the late Kevin McCarthy, for instance, is "big, dark-haired, good-looking (in a slightly shifty, predatory way)". There's a photograph of each actor, in case you can't put a face to the name and, most importantly, a list of every film these stars appeared in. Many of these names have been forgotten, but that's partly due to the fact that, in the UK at least, so few old movies are shown on TV these days.
A well organized, incredibly detailed and up to date guide to film actors around the world!!! If you want to know every film that your favorite actor made, this is the book for you!
