"irresistable reading...quite a bit of priceless first-hand Hollywood stories...fun, crucial material for film fans"--Classic Images; "Tom Weaver has enjoyed a lengthy career writing about the horror genre through his reference guides and countless magazine contributions. His interviews are thorough and informative but presented conversationally, as though he is simply visiting with an old friend. Weaver expertly guides the talk in a way that allows him to ask his questions in an informal manner, and likely he received a more detailed answer than if he had approached the subject as a journalist would"--horrortalk.com; "fascinating reading. With so many of these people no longer around, Tom Weaver's interview books are probably the only way we're going to get accounts of the time period and if you're a fan of the 1940-50s movies then they add a depth that you're not going to get anywhere else."--SF Crowsnest; "Weaver is a writer you should be reading...smooth, highly readable narratives"--Big Reel; "most impressive...snappy, energetic...highly recommended"--Midnight Marquee; "fascinating, intriguing...Tom Weaver is the king of film historians"--Starlog; "a fun book for all SF film enthusiasts"--Interzone; "invaluable"--Samhain; "well written and interesting...fascinating and insightful interviews...fascinating...the interviews are all interesting and give many behind-the-scene looks at the film production...highly recommended"--WFOS-FM.
