George Tiffin is a writer and film-maker who has travelled from Siberia to the Seychelles shooting and directing music videos and commercials. He is the author of the thriller MERCY ALEXANDER.
The films that tipped actresses into stardom cover almost one hundred years from 1914's Hearts Adrift that turned Mary Pickford into a star to Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone in 2014. George Tiffin picks the films that changed their lives, with dialogue from the film in question, quotes from the actresses and a resume of their lives and careers. Illustrated with full page portraits in black and white, a testimony to the power of the big screen and the women who project that star quality. ~ Sue Baker Like for Like Reading Hollywood Glamour Portraits, John Kobal Movie Star Chronicles: A Visual History of the World's Greatest 320 Movie Stars, Ian Haydn Smith
Pithy put-downs, hard-boiled snarlings, words of love and regret...ALL THE BEST LINES presents 500 memorable movie quotes, embracing both one-liners ('My name is Pussy Galore') and slices of snappy dialogue from pictures as diverse as When Harry Met Sally and Pulp Fiction. Arranged under such timeless themes as Dreams, Friends, Libido and Memories, the quotes juxtapose films and stars from every era and every genre. Dotted throughout the text are feature capsules focusing on themes and stories in the movies from Goldwynisms to Mae West, plus a generous scattering of cinema anecdotes, making the book both a joy to browse and an authoritative reference. Lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, ALL THE BEST LINES will delight and entertain you in equal measure, reacquainting you with your favourite movies and introducing you to some forgotten classics. Anyone who loves the movies will be delighted to find it in their Christmas stocking.
