This pair of books is a movie fan's delight, with history galore and black & white pictures of fabulous Hollywood in years gone by . Immortals of the Screen is a hardback, 11 1/4" x 8 1/2" with 224 pages of classic movies, actresses and actors. This was compiled and edited by Ray Stuart, who was a stuntman; there are over 600 photos. (There is an inscription on the inside cover page and the dust jacket is a bit worn). Fifty Years of the Movies, The Illustrated History of Motion Pictures from 1930 to the Present (1980) is a hardback 12" x 9 1/4" with 288 pages including index. There are a few pages with colored photos; the pictures throughout the book are black and white. This book is divided by decades and gives a great illustration of the times through the movies.
