Instant Film Buff Status Guaranteed


Formats & editions


Everything you never knew about the world of movies … and more!

From the team who brought you The Empire Film Guide, here are all the obscure, indecent and downright bizarre facts and figures that were not considered sensible for a practical film guide.

Discover which country translated GI Jane as Satan Female Soldier, which Hollywood heartthrob is the lead singer of 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, and which country takes a bag of toasted leaf cutter ants to the cinema instead of popcorn!

The Schott’s Miscellany of movies, packed full of facts, figures and lists, as well as explanations of filmmaking terminology and a “shot miscellany” – a list of all the various camera shots. You will soon know your Oscar Hosts from your Monty Python French insults, and never be short of small talk again!
