Movie Mutts: Hollywood Goes to the Dogs

Stephen M. Silverman, Author ABRAMS $19.95 (112p) ISBN 978-0-8109-4394-0
Entertainment journalist and author Stephen M. Silverman (Funny Ladies: 100 Years of Great Comediennes) brings tongue-in-cheek humor to his scrapbook-style overview of canine celebrities and their human co-stars in Movie Mutts: Hollywood Goes to the Dogs. With the able assistance of his chocolate-colored retriever, Silverman breezily considers such cinematic milestones as Rin Tin Tin's smooth transition from silent films to talkies, Lassie's many reincarnations and Tom Hanks's penchant for canine sidekicks, in text accompanied by 135 funny and poignant illustrations, many in full color. Agent, Martha Kaplan. ( May)
