An informal history of the movies told through some of cinema's best-loved scenes, from the early days of Hollywood to the present day. Pithy put-downs, hard-boiled snarlings, words of love and regret - they're all here in this collection of 500 memorable movie quotes, embracing both one-liners ("My name is Pussy Galore") and slices of snappy dialogue from pictures as diverse as King Kong, Vertigo, The Magnificent Seven, Network, This Is Spinal Tap, Fight Club, Superbad, and Inglourious Basterds. Arranged under such timeless themes as "dreams," "friends,""libido," and "memories," the quotes juxtapose films and stars from every era and every genre. Throughout the text are feature capsules focusing on themes and stories in the movies from Goldwynisms to Mae West, plus a generous scattering of cinema anecdotes, making the book both a joy to browse and an authoritative reference. Lavishly illustrated, this collection will delight and entertain readers in equal measure, reacquainting them with favorite movies and introducing some forgotten classics
