The New Historical Dictionary of the American Film Industry is a completely revised and updated edition of Anthony Slide's The American Film Industry, originally published in 1986 and recipient of the American Library Association's Outstanding Reference Book award for that year. More than 200 new entries have been added, and all original entries have been updated; each entry is followed by a short bibliography.

As its predecessor, the new dictionary is unique in that it is not a who's who of the industry, but rather a what's what: a dictionary of producing and releasing companies, technical innovations, industry terms, studios, genres, color systems, institutions and organizations, etc. More than 800 entries include everything from "Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences" to "Zoom Lens", from "Astoria Studios" to "Zoetrope".

About the Author:

Anthony Slide has published over fifty pioneering works on film history. In 1990 he was awarded an honorary doctorate of letters by Bowling Green University.

Review:

'This historical dictionary will provide some much-needed help for students trying to understand the business, legal, and technical aspects of the American film industry ... No other single work is as up-to-date or covers the same ground. A worthwhile addition to any general library collection.' CHOICE 'Slide's erudition, incisive analyses and extensive coverage of the multitude of film companies that have come and gone through the years, should make his volume an essential purchase for most libraries.' Reference and User Services Quarterly 'This is a book as much for browsing as for reference, whether your interest is the Nash Motion Picture Company Inc or the custard pie gag and banana peel pratfalls.' The Library Association Record
