Product Description
Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Not illustrated. Excerpt: Noel Fielding (born 21 May 1973 in Westminster, London, England) is an English artist, comedian and actor. He is known for his role as Vince Noir in The Mighty Boosh, which he co-writes with fellow actor Julian Barratt. Noel Fielding performed regularly as a stand-up comedian during the late 1990s, and appeared repeatedly on the BBC television stand-up showcase Gassed. His highly animated stand-up routine included surreal stories, physical comedy, characters, and songs, much like his later work in The Mighty Boosh. In 2010, Fielding was to perform a solo tour across the country. The tour was cancelled so he could concentrate on other projects, Fielding and Barratt are currently writing for the Boosh film and album. In 2010, Fielding took part in Channel 4's Comedy Gala, a benefit show held in aid of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, filmed live at the O2 Arena in London on 30 March. Fielding is best known for playing the role of Vince Noir opposite Julian Barratt (Howard Moon) in the cult comedy series The Mighty Boosh. Fielding met Barratt when he was performing a gig. Impressed by Fielding's skill, Barratt offered him a place to perform, and the two went on to form a partnership. Barratt and Fielding are said to have compared their relationship to a marriage: The character of Vince Noir is a kind, somewhat naive and loyal friend to Howard Moon. He can talk to animals, earning him the nickname "Mowgli in Flares". He is vibrant and flamboyant contrasting with his co-star who is more like a "geography teacher from Leeds." Fielding plays various other characters in the television show including: Tony Harrison, a small pink head with tentacles and member of the shaman council; The Hitcher, a cockney hitch-hiker with a po...

Product Description
The career of towering, handsome actor Christopher Lee has stretched over half a century in every sort of film from comedy to horror. He has assumed such diverse roles as the Man With the Golden Gun, Frankenstein’s monster, Fu Manchu, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Catheter (from Gremlins 2).

From Corridor of Mirrors in 1948 to Star Wars: Episode II-Attack of the Clones in 2002, this reference book covers 166 of Lee’s theatrical feature films in detail. Each entry provides all production information (including year of release, studio, running time, and location), full credits for cast and crew, a synopsis of the film, and a critical analysis of the film and Lee’s involvement, with a detailed account of its making and commentary drawn from some thirty hours of interviews with Lee himself. Each entry also places the film within the context of Lee’s career and discusses the director and other significant figures. Two appendices list Lee’s television feature films and miniseries and Lee’s short films, with brief credits and Lee’s role in each. The work concludes with an afterword by Christopher Lee. Photographs from the actor’s private collection are included. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The last word on the career of Mr. Lee--plus insights into the man himself!
Early in the summer of 2006 Turner Classic Movies ran Billy Wilder's underrated 1970 film, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. The picture was a box-office bust, Wilder himself elected to say little about itlater (in part because it was recut and shortened against his wishes), and published critical reaction is scarce. Not least among the film's attributes is Christopher Lee, who is a splendidly forceful Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's officious, easily annoyed brother. I wanted to read more about Lee's performance, and more about the film. Where to look?

Ah! Tom Johnson & Mark A. Miller's exhaustive, scholarly, and compulsively readable THE CHRISTOPHER LEE FILMOGRAPHY saved the day. Nearly 2000 words from this smart, handsome book are devoted to the Wilder film, offering complete cast & credits; a plot synopsis that is concise, useful, and entertaining; and a lengthy "Commentary" section that looks at the film as a whole, thus placing the contributions of Lee and others in a helpful contextthat encompasses art and industry realities.

The latter portion of the authors' commentary about the Wilder film, as with every Lee film discussed, focuses on Lee's involvement in the film. Johnson & Miller's remarks comments reflect two perspectives: critical and business/ historical. So it is that, throughout the book, we get informed comment on Lee's work as an artist, as well as original research that illuminates the making of the film, and the particulars of Lee's relationships with other cast members, as well as his comments regarding director, producer, writer, and others who helped make the film a reality--or who may have impeded its success.

The U.S.-based authors spent many hours in face-to-face confabs with Mr. Lee at the actor's home in London (plus numberless follow-up phone calls and letters), asking questions, taking down the actor's marvelous anecdotes, looking through career scrapbooks that Lee graciously opened for them, and selecting rare photographs from Lee's personal collection. This is what scholars of any stripe call "original research," and its value pays off here, with insights into Lee's movies (more than 160 of them!) that simply are not available from other sources--or if they are, they may have been cribbed, without acknowledgemt, from Johnson & Miller.

A special pleasure is that nearly every essay concludes with Mr. Lee's remarks, presented verbatim, about the individual films. Over the course of these first-person recollections, Lee reveals himself as a dedicated artist, of no small ego, perhaps, and also a man of powerful and varied talents. Above all, he has wished to work in meaningful films of quality and integrity, and to stretch himself as an actor. That he has not always been able to do so says more about the inanities of the film business than it does about Mr. Lee. Given opportunities worthy of him--the early Dracula roles, Lord Summerisle, Mycroft Holmes, Count Dooku, Jinnah (the founder of Pakistan), and many others--Lee dominates the screen not merely with his physical presence and that marvelously deep and cultured voice, but with his ability to become lost in his role. Like other great film actors--all of whom are forced to perform in fits and starts--Lee BECOMES the character. Film scholars and movie fans alike are swept away; they buy the illusion.

As an incredibly detailed--and always fascinating--chronicle of the career of one of cinema's most compelling actors, THE CHRISTOPHER LEE FILMOGRAPHY is the last word on Mr. Lee's professional life. And it is that rarity: a book created by the authors AND the subject, in protracted and amiable collaboration. How unusual that is, how valuable, and what a treat.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than a laundry list - Real Film Scholarship
Exhaustive without being exhausting, authors Miller and Johnson manage to transcend the trend of "lists" by not only providing the details of Christopher Lee's myriad film works, but accompanying the facts with delicious anecdotes and observations.Each and every film has an accompanying commentary - and each and every commentary is a treasure trove of information either from Lee himself or one of his collaborators, along with relevant snippets from reviews.What I particularlyliked about the commentary segments is that they not only rely on Lee's memories of the films - they also frequently draw on contemporary accounts by Lee himself in the form of quotes from letters Lee wrote to his fan club president over the years.Many's the time Lee would approach a film with high hopes, only to have them dashed by any one of a number of problems that tend to beset the best of productions.It's truly fascinating to see what was running through the actor's mind prior to starting something like THE DEVIL RIDES OUT.

While they obviously have great respect and affection for their subject, Miller and Johnson are never sycophantic.

You may buy this book because you are a fan of Christopher Lee or a horror film completist.But you'll return to it again and again because it is well-written, well-researched, and just plain fun to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of McFarland's finest
Individually, film historians Tom Johnson and Mark A. Miller already have several books and articles to their credit. Now they've pooled their talents to collaborate on what will stand as the definitive account of Christopher Lee's film career. Documenting Lee's cinematic output is a daunting challenge; he appeared in many films that were never released in the U.S.--or anywhere else--making them extremely difficult to track down, even in this wonderful age of DVD and satellite television. Fortunately, Johnson and Miller--with valuable assist from Mr. Lee himself--come through with flying colors. This is cinematic scholarship of the highest order, which is not to imply it's dry and academic. Hardly. Thanks to Johnson, Miller, Lee and many interview subjects, it's a lively, accessible, and at times fall-down-funny look at the career of someone who could be cited as the ultimate example of a "working actor."
McFarland books tend to be very high priced, and since most of them never make it to a bookstore shelf, consumers don't have the luxury of checking out the goods before hand. So you're never really sure of what you're getting until the money has left your wallet. At $55, THE CHRISTOPHER LEE FILMOGRAPHY may seem pricey, but it's well worth the investment; the book is beautifully written and McFarland has done a bang-up job of laying out the text and (rare) photos. For Lee fans, it's a must-have item. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome Series
This is an awsome series and I reccomend reading all the caitlin books and in order.I like how they are christian based, have a good story line and teach good morals.The caitlin series follows a girl from high school through college and eventually marriage.I am 19 and read all 5 books during my fall semester at college.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's My Life
Great teenage stories that draw students to want to read the book.I can't keep the series of books in my classroom.As soon as it's checked in it's checked out by someone else.Every teeenager's story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well written
This is the second book in one of my favorite serises. Caitlin is a real girl who with real problems. I did think that the author talked about dating a little to much. She made it sound like dating or liking a boy was a sin against God. When it really isnt. This was still a very good book and I am looking forward to reading the nest one in the series

2-0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing
I've enjoyed Melody Carlson's adult novels.They tend to have realistic characters and give a far more complex, nuanced view of faith and the world than a lot of Christian fiction.

This novel disappointed me a great deal.The characters are one-dimensional and the plot could not be more simplistic.Basically, it boils down to this: don't have sex, because God's greatest concern with teenage girls is the state of their hymen (their actual one, or maybe, like Beanie, their spiritual hymen) rather than of their heart.Perhaps the most insulting, disgusting part of the book is the final page where the fictional character in the book tries to urge readers to sign a chastity pledge.

Can you imagine how much better this world would be if young Christians were encouraged to pledge themselves to feed the hungry, comfort the afflicted, and visit the imprisoned, rather than to not have sex?How wonderful it could be if their energy and passion were turned outward toward helping the "least of these"--the poor, the sick, the outcast, the people Jesus served--rather than inward toward perserving their "sexual purity"?Unfortunately, that is not what's happening, and books like this are a part of the problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars Faith or Friendship
This book, It's My Life Diary of a Teenage Girl, is a true test to see if Caitlin can remain loyal to God, while trying to maintain her friendship with Beanie.After making a few new commitments to God, Caitlin realizes that dating is just not something that she wishes to take part in.She sees one of the results from dating every day when she looks at Beanie, and just wonders how in the world is that girl every going to be able to raise a child on her own.Among all this friendship trouble Caitlin is also helping out with the planning of a missionary trip to Mexico.Read this book to find out the shocking truths of a teenage girl.
This is a great choice to read for any teenage girl.This series is one of the best that I've ever read.Once I get started reading I just can't seem to it down for hours.You can take situations from the book and relate them to your own life very easily.Again, this is a great book if you enjoy reading Christian fiction and are a teenage girl.
