Calendar Smorgasbord of Silver Screen Icons!29 Oct. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
MOVIE ICONS, published by Taschen GmbH in 2013, is one of those daily calendar books that, in this case, presents photographs - mostly color - of movie actors and actresses with accompanying quotes, film posters, etc. In some cases, actors born on that particular day are listed as well.
The actors/actresses include Tyrone Power, Tom Cruise, Julie Harris, Kate Winslet, Anita Ekberg, Jack Benny, Nicole Kidman, Lee Marvin, Ralph Fiennes, Claire Bloom, Jean Reno, Stephen Chow, Roman Polanski, Peter Lorre, James Caan, Faye Dunaway, Humphrey Bogart, Joe Pesci, Greta Garbo and others in scenes from such movies as QUEEN CHRISTINA, POINT BLANK, BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES, AFRICAN QUEEN, EL DORADO, BLACK SWAN, LOOK BACK IN ANGER, BONNIE AND CLYDE, MOULIN ROUGE, etc.
MOVIE ICONS is eye candy for cinema buffs. It's not an essential purchase but worth a look. Your call, folks.
