This coffee-table sized encyclopedia/compendium presents a comprehensive visual history of the films of the 1950s produced by Hollywood, British, and European studios. Essentially a pre-Internet IMDB sub-catalog focusing on one decade, with a mosaic layout consisting of square black-and-white photos and a few lines of descriptive text. Thorough and laid in a way that makes it easy to find and process basic facts about cinema of the '50s.
