Synopsis

Katharine Hepburn stars in what play at the climax of Stage Door? Can you name the classic in which a cigarette is put out in a jar of cold cream? What star (not Alan Ladd) is the top-billed male in This Gun for Hire? If you think you know classic movies, well, prepare to be challenged as never before. Die-hard film buffs won’t be able to resist the cleverness, imagination, and pleasure of John DiLeo’s 200 memory-teasing quizzes on all facets of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Upon the book’s initial publication, legendary film critic Pauline Kael said, “It’s like a Christmas stocking full of surprises. This is the smartest movie quiz book I’ve ever seen.”(from Goodreads.com)

The Author

John DiLeo’s first book was And You Thought You Knew Classic Movies (St. Martin’s, 1999), hailed by Pauline Kael as “the smartest movie quiz book I’ve ever seen.” His second book was 100 Great Film Performances You Should Remember—But Probably Don’t (Limelight Editions, 2002), which Adolph Green called “a valuable and touching work.” TCM host Robert Osborne said, in the Hollywood Reporter, that the book “delightfully throws the spotlight on some remarkable film work,” and the Washington Post ‘s reaction was, “Not only is this helpful criticism, but 100 Great Film Performances can serve as balm for anyone who has ever been disgruntled by the Academy’s choices on Oscar night.” John has been a contributing book reviewer for the Washington Post ‘s Book World and currently writes DVD and film-book reviews in three monthly columns, appearing in Milford Magazine (PA), Allegany Magazine (MD), and Central Voice ( Harrisburg , PA ). He frequently hosts classic-film series, appears on radio programs, conducts film-history seminars, and has been an annual participant in the Black Bear Film Festival in the Poconos. Born in 1961 in Brooklyn , John was raised on Long Island and graduated from Ithaca College in 1982 with a B.F.A.
