New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (14)

Books, books and more books. One can never have enough books, especially classic film ones! I keep hearing from folks that you love these round-ups so I'll keep bringing them to you. They're a labor of love (no, seriously it's about 2 weeks worth of research!) and I hope if anything they're useful.

Are you new to my list? Here are the details. The books include biographies, memoirs, scholarly texts, coffee table books and more from a variety of publishers. Publication dates range from January to June 2020 and these are subject to change.

 Links go to Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Powell's. When you use my buy links to purchase and order a title you’re interested in you help support this site. Thank you!
