9 Carnes, Mark (Gen ed) Past Imperfect: History According to the Movies
UK Cassell 1996 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 26.5cm 
304pp & 1.3kg to post. An invaluable and entertaining corrective to all the bombast and blather that pass for Hollywood history. A remarkable resource. It has been said that most of what we know about history we learn from the movies, and so much of what we think we know is probably wrong. Featuring a keynote dialogue between noted director John Sayles and historian Eric Foner, this book will tantalize history and film buffs alike with its thought-provoking inquiry into the relationship between filmmaking and the historical record, with the irony that while the plots might be confections, the details, costumes, and decor are painstakingly and expensively correct. Hundreds of photos. review >>> This set of essays is a ton of fun, from Stephen J. Gould on Jurassic Park to a summary of The Last of the Mohicans in the form of a Soap Opera Update digest. I especially like the suggestion that Oliver Stone is an appropriately paranoid director for a movie about the equally-paranoid Nixon.

10 Clark Colin THE PRINCE, THE SHOWGIRL AND ME

A behind the scenes account of two screen legends - at war and at work. All pp clean white & tightly bound, dj unclipped, a small spot on compressed pp edge (right side, clean top & bottom) ............review > I really enjoyed this first-hand look into Marilyn's life. It made me sad, it made me laugh and it made me understand her better................ review by DMarshall > Well, the book arrived yesterday morning and by last night I had read the entire thing-- it’s just that much fun. After reading though, it would seem that the subtitle to the book should be How Did the Greatest Actor in the World End Up So Stiff and the Fluff Sexpot End Up So Very, Very Good? That’s the basic question of the whole Prince and Showgirl experience. And Colin Clark, bless his heart, was right there and just removed enough to be able to observe without anyone shooing him away. The book, if anything, is even better than the documentary-- and best of all, it is very often laugh out loud hilarious.
