The prodigies of the 1970s revolutionized cinema. American film saw a wave of nostalgia, Vietnam pictures, blaxploitation, and the rise of the anti-hero... and at the same time gave birth to the blockbuster. Meanwhile, the New German Cinema of Fassbinder, Wenders, and Herzog had its heyday, and the sexual revolution made its way to the silver screen. This big, lavishly illustrated book has 140 A-Z film entries, with synopses, stills and production photos, cast/crew listings, box office figures, trivia, technical info, and actor and director bios. Color and b&w.
