Publisher Comments:

A FRONT-ROW SEAT TO A YEAR'S WORTH OF MUST-SEE FILMS

Director, producer, screenwriter, author, actor, and film critic, Peter Bogdanovich knows movies. Now, in this unique new book, he shares his passion with a connoisseur's insight and delight by inviting the reader to join him for a year at the movies--fifty-two weeks, fifty-two films, fifty-two reasons to watch. Which films does Peter Bogdanovich call . . .

"The most hauntingly chilling, strangely prophetic science-fiction picture ever made."

(You'll be treated to it on Halloween)

"A scintillatingly directed comedy."

(Discover it with someone you love on Valentine's Day)

"A bittersweet human comedy of vintage genius [that] only becomes more precious as the years pass."

(Ringing in the New Year with it is reason enough to celebrate)

With recommendations specific to the seasons and holidays--from sparkling comedies, timeless musicals, landmark foreign films, powerful dramas and thrillers to legendary masterpieces and neglected treasures--Bogdanovich's eclectic cinematic calendar of classics, each available on video, each accompanied by an illuminating essay, and each followed by a list of tie-in recommendations, makes the perfect date for movielovers every week of the year.

Synopsis:

This film calendar features literally a movie a week--for a year. As recommended and lovingly profiled in essays by Peter Bogdanovich: 52 vintage films (all available on videocassette) for viewing pleasure in one calendar year. 14 photos.
