The Hugo Movie Companion by Brian Selznick
The Hugo Movie Companion by Brian Selznick
5.0 out of 5 stars Hugo Movie Companion, 21 Sep 2012
I loved the film Hugo although unfortunately I did not see it in the cinema in 3D where it must have been marvellous to watch. However I loved the DVD. While searching Amazon I discovered the Movie companion and sent for this book without hesitation. It is a beautiful book packed with most interesting information about the making of the picture, the actors and director and absolutely gorgeous photographs and illustrations throughout. A must for those who loved this film and want a permanent record of it in this magnificent book. Highly recommended and available through Amazon as most of my recent purchases have been and will most likely be.

This story told in the form of a poem has always been a favourite of mine and although the film does not follow the exact same story line it is nevertheless fine colourful entertainment with many well known stars of the era (mid fifties) and featuring the beautiful music of Grieg's Peer Gynt and some fine singing from Van Johnson, Kay Starr and others. Highly enjoyable and worthwhile to watch.

Introducing Mario Lanza ~ Mario Lanza
Having been an enthusiast of the recordings of the great Mario Lanza for more than fifty years I felt sure that this three disc set would present his singing and songs from when he was at his absolute best. There is no doubt that this is what I found here. This is the absolute tribute to the great singer. An across the board showcase of many of his greatest performances. These were made when he was the BEST. And before record producers managed to botch up mst of his (some years later) long playing records; eg those made in Rome in the Italian studios and transferred to America for finishing off - literally.
