TERRORS OF THE SCREEN - Used Hardback Book
By Frank Manchel. Used hardback (cloth bound) with no dust jacket.
This is a 122 page book about terror films from the early silent days of the German expressionists through the 1960s. Frank Manchel gives us an excellent discussion of those early days with personalities like George Melies in France, the work of the Thanhouser Studios, Paul Wegener and UFA. He covers such notable films as "Golem", "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Nosferatu", and "Metropolis" and provides lots of interesting background information that is not generally known.
He provides profiles of actors like Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff, and Bela Lugosi and covers the great classics of the 30s and the directors like James Whale, producers like Irving Thalberg, and technicians like Willis O'Brien.
Former library, but in great shape. Just has typical library markings.
