America's Film Legacy, 2009-2010
A Viewer's Guide to the 50 Landmark Movies Added to the National Film Registry in 2009/2010Book - 2012
America's Film Legacy, 2009-2010 is a guide to the most significant films ever made in the United States. Unlike opinionated "Top 100" and arbitrary "Best of" lists, these are the real thing: groundbreaking films that make up the backbone of American cinema.
Each of the 50 newest titles in the National Film Registry is covered in a detailed essay that includes cast, credits, and major awards, as well as screening information and film stills. From well-known movies like The Muppet Movie and Dog Day Afternoon, to more obscure films, like A Study in Reds and Hot Dogs for Gauguin, Daniel Eagan's beautifully written and updated edition is for anyone who loves American movies and who wants to learn more about them.
