Great quick reference guide Jun 2, 2005
You know the face but don't know the name - memorable "character" actors who have appeared over and over again in films but don't have that stellar name recognition like the major stars do. This A-Z encyclopedia includes over 1100 names from today and yester-year. Each entry includes a head shot and a brief career analysis followed by a list of film credits. Since there is no index of any kind to look up actors by type or film title, you mainly have to browse the photos if you are searching for a particular individual whose name you don't know. Also if you are looking for detailed biographical information about the actor, you might be disappointed. However, since any biographical information is often hard to find about these actors, this is a book worth having in your film library.
