Out of Print...In less than four decades, the cinema grew from a penny peepshow to a world industry. Now in its early middle age, its magic is undimmed, its myth-making more potent than ever. It is a factory whose products furnish dreams,whose gilded history frrames the legends of our time. The movies are where fable and reality meet in the plush darkness. They have produced theirs own heros and their own literature. Its flavour is unique: salty, confiding, infatuated and appalled. It measures a world where memory mellows into nostagia. It has intrigued poets and playwrights,novelists and short-story writers. In The Film Addict's Archive, Philip Oakes has selected scenes, stories and poems about the cinema by thirty of the best of these writers to compile an anthology which has pace, humour and literary distinction, representing eighty years of movie-going.
