The Secret Life of the Movies is a colorful and entertaining treat for movie lovers. It includes little known trivia from movies ranging from the silent era to brand new films. There are lots of movies of every type included and I was especially pleased to see my favorite genre – horror – well represented.

From the well-known fact that Halloween’s Michael Meyers mask was a spray-painted Halloween mask of Captain Kirk to the little known fact that when Harold Lloyd famously hung from the arm of the clock on a skyscraper (well, 9 stories up in actuality) he was really hanging on with only his left hand – he wore a glove over his mostly missing right hand – the book is a wealth of trivia.

This is the kind of book that makes a perfect gift for movie lovers. It would be great on a coffee table or perfect as bathroom reading. It’s written with humor and is quite entertaining.
