British moviegoers love U.S. films. Why? A cinema manager in London's East End told me: "People come to the movies to get lost. They don't want to see Frank Sinatra in a U.K. movie, treading the same dreary streets they live in, day in, day out. They want Frank transported to a magic world, or a different world. That's what Hollywood supplies. British films are too realistic, too down-to-earth."

Another essential book for a film buff's library, this one is packed with information and reviews. Some of the entries are quite extensive. JHR provides all the information you need, including complete cast and production staff. I find JHR's information invaluable. I like to read not only who acted in a movie, but who made it, both top-billed and lesser mortals. -- Ross Adams in DRESS CIRCLE mag.

Joi Lansing died an untimely death in 1972. She was a multi-talented performer signed by MGM in the 1940s. Her curvy figure and facial beauty proved to be hindrances. They restricted her to playing "dumb blondes". Despite the stereotypes she was in steady demand as a singer, nightclub performer, as well as a stage, TV, and movie actress. My E-book focuses on her immense versatility and creativity.
