RARE BOOKS, MAGS, POSTERS, ETC.

We're trying to find space for Gary's growing DVD collection and have decided to sell items from our personal collection of books, posters, magazines and other movie memorabilia. Sometimes we will have 2 copies of the item, but usually there is just one available. The items are from our personals collections that we merged when we got married—they are not mint, we read the books and mags,. displayed the posters, etc. But everything is in good conditon. We will try to keep this updated, but it might not be possible as we get busier. Please e-mail with any questions. CONTACT US.

Sauter's book is the latest addition to the canon of bad movie appreciation, and its organization is as kitschy as the movies themselves. Refreshingly opinionated, Sauter refuses to straddle fences, but there's no real rhyme or reason behind his selections. They run the gamut, from insipid genres (rock musicals and biker films) to schlock horror (Ed Wood's notorious output) to ill-conceived literary adaptations (The Fountainhead) and films hopelessly out of time and place (Paint Your Wagon). Sauter gloats most at blockbuster bombs, such as Cleopatra?there is a noticeable glint in this film critic's eye when, despite big budgets, technological wizardry and tried-and-true formulas, Hollywood still manages to fall flat on its face. Moments of wry tenderness for real duds are tinctured with caustic criticism. "Sign of the Times" sections approach genre analysis in terms of insight, and some historical overview is provided. Bad movies are an easy target, perhaps, but an amusing one.

An history of the spook shows of the 1930's and 40's.
"This is a book that makes me want to don a gorilla suit and rip apart a blonde with my bare claws. It's a true history of my artistic idols: the mad doctors and maniacal magicians who toured with live midnight fright shows, and scared the bejeezus out of hormone-pumped teenagers on dates. In my opinion, an absolute must-read for horror and magic fans." --Teller of Penn & Teller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When it was published in 1975, The Vampire Film was the first book in English devoted to the topic of vampire movies. Now newly updated, with a number of chapters covering the intervening two decades, The Vampire Film stands as the best researched and most illuminating book on its subject. In their thematically organized chapters, authors Alain Silver and James Ursini discuss how the movies have created a developing tradition of vampire lore. There is even a chapter on "The Multimedia Vampire." Full of helpful commentaries and loaded with stills from the movies discussed, this book is both good scholarship and an entertaining read.
