1 Wilson, Arthur, comp. and ed. The Warner Bros. Golden Anniversary Book
New York Film and Venture Corp. (A Dell Special) (c.1973) NO First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
[a little wear at ends of spine, but generally a very nice copy of this large-format paperback original, usually found quite beat-up; small bookstore stamp on title page]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) Chronological filmography of 2,075 feature films produced and/or released by Warner Bros. from 1917 (ALIMONY, starring Lois Wilson) through the end of 1972 (JEREMIAH JOHNSON, with Robert Redford). Includes a critical essay, "Fifty Years of Warner Bros.," by Arthur Knight, and a Preface by Willard Van Dyke, then director of the Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film. The credits given for each film are minimal: producer (if any), director, writer(s) (including data on the source material), cinematographer and film editor; only the top few cast members are listed, and without character names. (The credits for the silent-era films are somewhat more minimal.) There have been better filmographical references published since then, but the book still serves well as an at-a-glance survey of the studio's output. (Films are arranged chronologically within each year, with the release month noted, which leads to such interesting observations as: both YANKEE DOODLE DANDY and CASABLANCA were released the same month (January 1943), as was another immortal classic, THE GORILLA MAN.)
