Empire Movie Miscellany: Instant Film Buff Status Guaranteed

The Big Screen: The Story of the Movies and What They Did to Us, David Thomson


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Celebrating the silver screen in all its glory Tiffin’s book offers a history of the medium as seen through the lens of its most sparkling lines and memorable scenes. It pays homage to the scriptwriters who created cinema’s most iconic films, from Gone With the Wind to Saving Private Ryan. As Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard rightly says, ‘Audiences don’t know somebody sits down and writes a picture. They think the actors make it up as they go along.’ Over five hundred excerpts are arranged thematically, featuring topics of perennial Hollywood interest like love, dreams, memories, or tears. Liberally scattered throughout this treasure trove of cinematic gems are essays on different aspects of film history, from Marilyn Monroe to film noir, the art of the screenwriter to the central mystery of The Usual Suspects. Alfred Hitchcock famously said, ‘to make a great film you need three things: the script, the script and the script,’ and Tiffin’s book amply demonstrates the truth of this assertion.

Synopsis

All the Best Lines by George Tiffin

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.
