Cassell's Movie Quotations

Nigel Rees, Author Cassell $29.95 (416p) ISBN 978-0-304-35369-9
""Hollywood, the Versailles of Los Angeles"" Memorable one-liners, famous throw-aways and iconic statements by filmmakers and actors (speaking in character and off-screen) are lavishly arrayed in Cassell's Movie Quotations, a compendium of more than 4,000 quotations about all aspects of the movie industry, edited by Nigel Rees. Easy to navigate and illustrated with 50 dynamic black-and-white photos, Rees's book also parses the facts behind frequently misquoted sayings (e.g., Greta Garbo never said, ""I want to be alone,"" in any of her interviews, but rather, ""I want to be let alone"" presumably by the press).
