Science-Fiction & Fantasy Cinema

If you are a trivia buff that likes learning little tidbits about classic movies or like me are constantly asking "Isn't that the guy from such and such a movie?" then you'll enjoy Science-Fiction & Fantasy Cinema: Classic Films of Horror, Sci-Fi & The Supernatural. This reference covers a wide variety of movies from the thirties to the seventies. These include epic movies like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Star Wars, Abbott & Costello comedy flicks, and even a large selection of Disney movies.

The movies are presented in alphabetical order. Each entry then notes the characters and the actors that played them as well as the people behind the scenes such as the director, producer, writer, etc. From here we get into the details of copyright date, release dates, and length of the film. A short synopsis and a comment section follow.

Apart from the section where I could look up names of actors, the comments section was probably the section I most enjoyed. I found myself browsing these sections and finding out all sorts of interesting bits of trivia.
