"Wings" is featured on the cover of the first of JHR's Guides to Classic Movies on DVD. This book has now been released in an up-to-date Kindle edition for only $3.99! The e-book as well as the traditional printed edition are now on sale in online stores throughout the world including Barnes & Noble, Apple and Sony. The price for the lavishly printed 320-page book is only $17.50. Over 175 movies are detailed, and illustrated with over 100 photos. If you take advantage of only ONE of my 178 DVD suggestions, you will save more than the price of the book. And if you buy the printed edition from Amazon, you can download the Kindle edition FREE OF CHARGE!

Another book I recommend (it won a 2011 Readers Favorite Award) deals with MYSTERY, SUSPENSE, FILM NOIR AND DETECTIVE MOVIES ON DVD (see details both ABOVE and BELOW).

Here is a mammoth, award-winning 468-page guide to well over 700 suspense/film noir/mystery movies now available on DVD. Over 1,200 DVDs were viewed in the course of writing this book. YOU WILL SAVE THE $24.50 COVER PRICE OF THIS BOOK BY FOLLOWING JUST A FEW OF THE SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT NOT TO BUY ON AN INFERIOR DVD DISC. On the other hand, you will be thrilled that the DVD discs you do buy are every bit as good in visual and sound quality as the book indicates. Whether you enjoy them or not, of course, is a matter of individual preference. At least the reviews and other details will guide you in the right direction. If you can't stand Dana Andrews, for instance, no way will you buy "Laura" or "Zero Hour", no matter how much I recommend them.    

The third book in this series deals with WESTERNS. 

When I commenced work on SILENT FILMS & EARLY TALKIES ON DVD, I thought I'd be lucky to find 200 feature films that were (or had been) available. To my amazement, the total is now closer to 2,000. Of course, these include collections of shorts, and there are duplicates. Three or four versions of some popular public domain titles can be purchased for prices ranging all the way from bargain basement to premium. I've looked at them all, and selected the best, regardless of price. And would you believe that MANY of the CHEAPER discs are SUPERIOR in quality to the more expensive? ALPHA and GRAPEVINE are the front runners so far as SILENT MOVIE CLASSICS are concerned. Sometimes, the Grapevine pressing is the better disc, but just as often the inexpensive Alpha version is superior, so I've also provided a quality rating in each review: 10/10 represents a perfect, indeed an outstanding DVD transfer. "Sunrise" from Fox is an excellent example of a 10/10 DVD. 

 

SILENT FILMS AND EARLY TALKIES ON DVD is now available both as a regular book and in a Kindle edition which costs only $3.99! This e-book edition is also now on sale at Barnes & Noble, Apple and Sony. To buy the lavishly printed trade paperback edition for $17.50, please use this link: http://www.lulu.com/content/1988702
