BEYOND CASABLANCA II is now on Kindle

My second collection of classic movie reviews is now available on Kindle, and to celebrate its arrival it will be free all this weekend. I hope that anyone who enjoys the blog will download a copy!

BEYOND CASABLANCA II: 101 CLASSIC MOVIES WORTH WATCHING offers a whole new collection of classic film reviews to expand your movie watchlist even farther beyond the original book's selections. This time I've moved into the 1960s to include great films like The Music Man (1962), Wait Until Dark (1967), and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967). You'll find silent films like The Cat and the Canary (1927), The Doll (1919), and The Phantom of the Opera (1925). As always, the book covers every genre and decade, and the movies selected represent more than 75 directors and hundreds of notable performers.

Unlike the Leonard Maltin guide, which offers only capsule reviews, I provide an essay-length discussion of each movie included, although I try to keep spoilers and plot summary to a minimum so that you can fully enjoy watching the pictures for yourself. Every review ends with suggestions for what to watch next, and the three index sections group movies by year, director, and notable cast members so that you can find more of what you like best.

Right now the new book is only available on Kindle, but the original continues to be in both paperback and Kindle editions. I'll let everyone know if a paperback edition of BEYOND CASABLANCA II becomes an option in the future.
