This collection explores the evolution of the Superman character and demonstrates how his alterations mirror historical changes in American society.

$39.95 -- American Science Fiction Television Series of the 1950s: Episode Guides and Casts and Credits for Twenty Shows by Patrick Lucanio and Gary Coville = 70 photos, bibliography, indexes, 261pages, (7 x 10) 2007 [McFarland] As Americans grappled with the real problems of the atomic age in the 1950s, the science fiction television series provided escapist fare. At first essentially fantasy and adventure, the shows reflected the progress of the decade, using in the late 1950s extrapolations from the theories and findings of true science. From Adventures of Superman to World of Giants, this reference work covers all science fiction television series of the 1950s. A lengthy essay details character development, technical innovations, critical commentary and other matters. The episode guides that follow first provide primary cast and production credits for the entire season and then coverage of each individual episode, with title, airdate, writer, director, and a plot synopsis. Much of the information was derived from actual viewing, and many errors from other works are corrected here. About the Authors: Patrick Lucanio lives in Springfield, Oregon. Gary Coville has written on Jack the Ripper and coauthored several books on film and television. He lives in Dallas, Oregon. 

$39.95 -- AN ANALYTICAL GUIDE TO TELEVISION'S BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - by John Kenneth Muir - photos, notes, bibliography, appendices, index, 244 pages,  (6 x 9) 2005 [McFarland] When the space drama Battlestar Galactica debuted on ABC in 1978, it was expected to be the most popular new program of the year. Instead, it was attacked as a Star Wars rip-off and canceled after a mere 17 stories. The author acknowledges the show was full of dramatic clichés and scientific inaccuracies, but despite these shortcomings, Battlestar Galactica was a dramatically resonant series full of unique and individual characters, such as Commander Adama (Lorne Greene) and ace warrior Captain Apollo (Richard Hatch). 
The author contends that Battlestar Galactica was a memorable attempt to make science fiction accessible to mainstream television audiences. The brilliant work of artist John Dykstra brought a new world of special effects to network television. Battlestar Galactica also skillfully exploited legends and names from both the Bible and ancient mythology, which added a layer of depth and maturity to the weekly drama. About the Author: John Kenneth Muir is the author of more than 20 reference books covering science fiction and horror on film and television. He is creator of the Internet sci-fi series The House Between (www.thehousebetween.com) and his popular blog can be found at reflectionsonfilmandtelevision.blogspot.com.

$35.00 -- The Burroughs Cyclopædia - Characters, Places, Fauna, Flora, Technologies, Languages, Ideas and Terminologies Found in the Works of Edgar Rice Burroughs by Clark A. Brady - appendices, bibliography, index, 408pp. softcover (6 x 9) 2005 [1996] McFarland - Edgar Rice Burroughs was not satisfied with creating characters and events within the world that we know; instead he created whole new worlds for histories, and he filled them with peoples, languages, cities, wars, plants, machines, and monsters that were believable to the reader, yet still alien and fantastic enough to thrill and delight. From A-Kor, the keeper of the Towers of Jetan in Manator, through Zytheb, one of the priests of Brulor in Ashair, this is a comprehensive reference to the fantastic worlds of Burroughs. Each entry provides a complete definition, along with a reference to the book in which the entry appeared. For terms, the language, either actual (e.g., Latin and French) or Burroughs-created (e.g., The Tongue of the Great Ape or Pal-ul-don), from which it was derived is given. About the Author: Reference librarian Clark A. Brady lives in LaPlace, Louisiana.

$34.95 – The Case Files of the Oriental Sleuths: Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto, and Mr. Wong by David Rothel - During the golden age of magazine fiction, motion pictures, and radio-roughly the 1920s through the late 1940s-three Oriental crime fighters were introduced to the American public. Through the media which they inhabited they became fictional icons in American popular culture: Honolulu Police Inspector Charlie Chan, International Secret Agent Mr. I. A. Moto, and Justice Department Agent Mr. James Lee Wong-commonly known as the Oriental Sleuths. Created by respected authors Earl Derr Biggers, Pulitzer Prize-winner John P. Marquand, and Hugh Wiley, the three Oriental sleuths' adventures first appeared in popular magazines and then were quickly snapped up by Hollywood to sate the appetites of film-goers for detective thrillers on the silver screen. Charlie Chan carried his case loads over into radio, television, newspaper comic strips, comic books, Better Little Books, and games. Mr. Moto followed with radio adventures and a graphic novel, and Mr. Wong added comic book exploits to his résumé. Now author David Rothel brings all three Oriental sleuths together for the first time in one volume as he examines their origins and covers their development in all the media forms they encompassed through the years. 326 pages - Publisher: BearManor Media (May 18, 2011)

$35.00 -- Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tarzan - A Biography of the Author and His Creation by Robert W. Fenton - Foreword by George T. McWhorter - 66 photos, appendices, notes, index, 254pp. softcover (7 x 10) 2010 [1967] Like millions of other readers and moviegoers, as a youngster the late Robert W. Fenton loved swinging through the jungle with Tarzan. As an adult his interest was revived when he bought Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs’ original office-estate in Tarzana, California, and began writing a biography of Burroughs. Originally titled The Big Swingers, it was the first full-scale, commercially published account of ERB’s life and work. Here is Fenton’s 1967 biography, back in print, as a wonderful source for a new generation of readers. Burroughs’ early years were far from promising—he was dropped from school, was undistinguished as a cavalryman at Fort Grant, lost out in gold mining, and had little success as a salesman.

Whether or not that's so, Flynn's portrait of what went on behind the scenes in John Milius' filming of Conan the Barbarian is very good indeed. Details concerning the filming and reception of the two Terminator movies, Running Man, and Total Recall are also here.

The soft-spoken actor, whose lisping accent was a stock commodity in every impressionist's repertoire, was one of the few screen actors billed by his last name only.His performance as the Monster in 'Frankenstein' and similar roles made his very name synonomous with 'horror,' a term he disliked. Like his famous contemporaries, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney Jr., Karloff's off-screen self was the antithesis of his screen image. Because of his personal, uphill struggle for recognition, he was constantly concerned for his fellow actors' welfare. In the thirties, he helped create the Screen Actor's Guild.  287 pages with over 400 photos and cast, credits, and synopsis of all his films.

$4.00 -- The Films of Marlon Brando by Tony Thomas - Publisher: Citadel (1992) The book covers his film career from his first film, "The Men," released in 1950, through "Last Tango In Paris" which was released in 1972. The book opens, after a short introduction by Pauline Kael, with a fairly detailed discussion of Brando and his career and continues with a chronological, movie by movie, discussion of the films he made during the 22 year scope of the book. Brando's reputation as a stage star was wholly due to his portrayal of the brutish Stanley Kowalski in "A Stretcar Named Desire." His fame as a film star came from his first six films. These were followed by many years of poor film choices and lackluster performances. His career was finally revived by his starring roles as Don Corleone in Mario Puzo's "The Godfather" and of Paul in "Last Tango in Paris." According to Thomas, Brando never fit into the Hollywood lifestyle and was very open in expressing his disdain for both the film industry in general, and for the people who made films. It was interesting to note that, because of Brando's many years of making unsuccessful movies and because of his reputation for "being difficult," when Francis Ford Coppola suggested to Paramount that they cast Brando as Don Corleone in "The Godfather," Coppola was told to forget that idea and to cast someone else in the part. Through subterfuge, Coppola finally got Paramount to accept Brando for the part, but they were unwilling to pay the large fee that he normally demanded., He agreed to a salary of only $100,000 but asked for, and received, a percentage of the gross. With the great success of the film, Brando eventually made millions from this contract. I'm afraid that I've never understood why his performance in "The Godfather" was so critically acclaimed, but I do agree with the book's evaluation of at least three of his early films. These were: "A Streetcar Named Desire" which was written by Tennessee Williams, "On the Waterfront" by Bud Schulberg, and "Viva Zapata" with a screenplay by John Steinbeck. I think that all three had writing that was superior to that found in most Hollywood scripts. This fact, along with Brando's best acting, contributed heavily to their success and, coincidentally, to my enjoyment of them. The reviews in this book are all very well written and give credit to all those who contributed to the success of each film. On the reversie side of the coin, they pull no punches when discussing the mediocrity of many of Brando's films in the 60's. I can recommend this book both for its biographical material and for its discussions of Brando's films. Brando was a very private man who gave very few interviews, so it is really a bonus that this book uncovers a little of the mystery that was Marlon Brando.

$4.00  -- The Films of Montgomery Clift – by Judith M. Kass  -  This book is the complete record of this admired actor's career. A brilliant biographical study recreates his tormented private life and analyzes the screen persona which has immortalized him. 224 pages - Publisher: Citadel Press (1979)

$4.00 -- The Films of Myrna Loy by Lawrence J. Quirk - In the summer of 1980, Myrna Loy celebrated the diamond anniversary of her birth. The same year marked her fifty-fifth year as a film actress. In 1925 she appeared in the first of her hundred and twenty-three films (to the date of the book), and her appearance as Alan King's secretary in 1980's Just Tell Me What You Want shows not the slightest diminuition of her performing talent, her charisma or her audience appeal. No other actress in the annals of the screen has been featured in motion pictures for six decades. In this Miss Loy is truly unique. This book, meticulously researched, is the complete record of her life and career. Every film in which she appeared is documented with casts, credits, reviews and production notes. The actors who appeared opposite Miss Loy are virtually a pantheon of Hollywood's leading players and include Clark Gable, William Powell, Spencer Tracy, Leslie Howard, Robert Taylor and John Barrymore. From an earlier period are Monte Blue, Conrad Nagel, Ramon Navarro, Ronald Colman and Lowell Sherman. Hundreds of photographs, many extremely rare, illustrate the book. The photographs depict Miss Loy in all her many screen personas: the vamp, the inscrutable Oriental lady, the romantic interest of various leading men, the calculating murderer, the perfect wife and the "other woman," to name only a few. Myrna Loy has always kept a low profile in her private life. The biographical portrait which emerges is that of a woman who has dedicated herself not only to her acting craft but to charities and causes advancing public interest in the arts. In February 1980, the National Board of Review awarded Myrna Loy the first David Wark Griffith Award for her spectacular advancement of motion pictures, both silent and sound. 256 pages, Publisher: Citadel Press (November 20, 1980)

$4.00 -- The Films of Tyrone Power – by Dennis Belafonte  (Author), Alvin H. Marill  (Author), Henry King (Foreword) Tyrone Power - dashing, ingratiating, urbane - became 20th Century-Fox's foremost leading man almost from the first days that Darryl F. Zanuck became head of the company. The Tyrone Power image was that of the clean-cut, honest and aspiring young American. In the light comedies in which he starred during the early years of his career he generally "got the girl." As Power matured, however, he became an actor of force and strength. His performances in Nightmare Alley, Witness for the Prosecution and Abandon Ship met with enthusiastic approval from critics and audiences alike. In the summer of 1958 Tyrone Power was appearing in what proved to be his final role, the character of King Solomon, playing opposite Gina Lollobrigida in Solomon and Sheba. Power collapsed after swordplay with George Sanders. He was rushed to a Madrid hospital, but died within an hour. His death, at forty-four, made headline news around the world. The Films of Tyrone Power represents five years of research by the authors and presents many aspects of the actor's life. Every film in which he acted is recaptured meticulously, along with casts, credits, reviews and production notes. The warm and detailed biographical portrait of the star, his three wives and his many loves, bring him alive, helped by more than four hundred photographs which illustrate the text. The introduction is by Henry King, who directed many of Tyrone Power's greatest hits. 224 pages - 1979 - Publisher: The Citadel Press

Thirty-three years later comes an illustrated, corrected, revised and greatly expanded new edition... Once there was a time—and it was not so long ago—when radio listening, especially to the dramas, was one of the most important events in many a young person’s life. People developed a love affair with the radio, and though the old times are now gone forever, the love affair continues. The heroes and settings of radio drama spurred the imagination to supply its own and much better images than visual media provided. There were no padded shoulders on the Lone Ranger, Superman flew with no jiggly trick photography, and the Martians whom Orson Welles helped attack the Earth were more convincing than anything the movies can provide. For those who have been under the thrall of radio’s alluring call, your new host Jim Harmon provides reminiscences of the heyday of radio programming, with insights on such radio dramas as I Love a Mystery, Gangbusters, The Shadow, Inner Sanctum, Batman and Robin, Superman, Tom Mix, The Lone Ranger, The Green Hornet, Adventures by Morse and a couple of dozen more. Photographs, a bibliography, and an index are included to enhance the reader’s journey into a past time when radio was the favorite pastime.

$39.95 -- The Mummy in Fact, Fiction and Film by Susan D. Cowie and Tom Johnson - Foreword by George Hart - 
75 photos, appendix, bibliography, index, 208pp. softcover (7 x 10) 2007 [2002] - In 1922, when Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen, much of what was then known about mummies came from the writing of Greek historian Herodotus and from the paintings on the walls of Egyptian tombs. Even before 1922, the mummy had been the subject of fiction, with such writers as Bram Stoker and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle tackling the subject, and early films dating back to 1901. In this work, the authors present the religious, social and scientific aspects of mummies as well as an in-depth discussion of facts about them (largely Egyptian, but including other kinds of mummies). Then, how mummies are portrayed in fiction and in the movies is discussed. Stories and films in which the mummy is a focal character are listed. About the Authors: Susan D. Cowie is a retired school principal and part-time tax accountant’s administrator. She’s also an avid Egyptologist and lives in Kent, England. Tom Johnson, author of several books on horror cinema, taught and coached cross country and track for 30 years. He is still involved in the school system and lives in Shillington, Pennsylvania. Published by McFarland

$39.95 -- The Mummy Unwrapped: Scenes Left on Universal’s Cutting Room Floor by Thomas M. Feramisco - Foreword by Peggy Moran Koster - 30 photos, appendix, bibliography, index, 240pp. softcover (7 x 10) 2008 [2003] McFarland - The mummy came to life in the 1940s out of Universal Pictures’ need to produce quick turnaround, low budget “B” movies. Universal produced The Mummy’s Hand, The Mummy’s Tomb, The Mummy’s Ghost, and The Mummy’s Curse (originally The Mummy’s Return) and thus created a popular franchise that is still supported today by a following of loyal fans. (Universal was prompted to produce a remake of its Mummy films in 1999.) This book is devoted entirely to Universal’s Mummy movies of the 1940s. It reveals lost action and dialogue by analyzing scenes that were edited out days before The Mummy’s Hand was released to theaters, treats readers to other dialogue that was filmed and then cut down to almost nothing before being included in the films, and compares and contrasts the original story of The Mummy’s Return to the final shooting script of what was later renamed The Mummy’s Curse. Each of the films has its own chapter, and chapters are also devoted to the actors who played the heroes, heroines, high priests, victims, and mummies in the films, and to the filmmakers who brought the mummies to life. About the Author: Thomas M. Feramisco is a prize winning script writer. He lives in Thousand Oaks, California.

$35.00 -- Syndicated Television - The First Forty Years, 1947–1987 by Hal Erickson - bibliography, index, 432 pages, (6 x 9) [1989 McFarland] Here is an excellent reference book on “first run” syndication—the distribution of programs either made exclusively for non-network play, or of programs intended for network telecasts but ultimately making their debuts in syndication. Bringing together information not easily found, this work covers the classics such as Sea Hunt, Highway Patrol, The Merv Griffin Show and the Muppet Show, as well as such once-popular but now obscure productions as China Smith, Ripcord and The Littlest Hobo. Coverage goes back to 1947 and the book includes a number of series ignored in other works. The first section is an overview of the concept of syndication from its earliest application in the newspaper world to the attempt by Fox Television to become a fourth network. The next four sections each cover ten years of syndication, listing the shows (with full background—who produced them and why, who liked them and why, etc.) alphabetically by title under the following genres: Adventure/Mystery, Children’s, Comedy, Drama, Game/Quiz, Informational, Music/Variety, Religious, Sports, Talk/Interview, Travel/Documentary, Westerns, and Women’s.

$29.95 – Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture by David Lemmo - 65 photos, notes, bibliography, index, 236pp (6 x 9) 2017, McFarland - From his first appearance in 1912, Tarzan became a multimedia franchise whose cultural influence extended well beyond mere entertainment. The original 20th century superhero, the Lord of the Apes was the inspiration behind such early archetypes as The Shadow and Doc Savage, themselves the basis for heroes like Batman and Superman. Long before Comic-Cons and Trekkies, the first Tarzan fan club was formed in America in 1916, pioneering the fandom movement that pervades modern pop culture. This book examines Tarzan in his various media representations—hunter, warrior, secret agent, fighter of communists and Nazis—and in his numerous story arcs, including crossover adventures featuring historical characters like Arthur Conan Doyle and Nikola Tesla. About the Author: David Lemmo is a veteran of three decades in the antiquarian books business. Some of his specialties included Edgar Rice Burroughs, pop culture, and comic books. In 2011, he helped create the North Coast Mangani, a chapter of the Burroughs Bibliophiles. He lives in Paradise, California.

Also covered is the long out of print The Tarzan Twins as well as the recent Tarzan, the Lost Adventure and The Eternal Savage. This book serves as a literary guide to all the Tarzan novels. Section One provides an overview of Tarzan the character, including a list of the many names and titles used by and given to Tarzan; Section Two covers the mythical language used in the novels, including a dictionary of the ape language; Section Three enumerates the lost cities, civilizations, tribes, peoples and religions discovered by Tarzan, detailing their religious rites and locations; Section Four describes the characters (human and otherwise) found in the novels; and Section Five gives summaries of all 24 books that comprise the Burroughs canon.

In 1916, he decided to go back and recount selected adventures from Tarzan’s teenage years. The result was Jungle Tales of Tarzan, a dozen short stories bearing such titles as “Tarzan’s First Love” and “Tarzan Rescues the Moon” and which chronicle the events preceding the youthful hero’s ascension to “King of the Jungle.” The adolescent phase of the character is the primary focus of this detailed analysis. The context, themes, motifs, and stylistic techniques of Jungle Tales of Tarzan are all fully explored, as well as the property’s literary antecedents and its links to the various comic book and film adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ most celebrated and enduring creation. About the Author: Stan Galloway has written several articles for The Burroughs Bulletin and has given presentations about Tarzan throughout the United States.

$45.00 -- Vixens, Floozies and Molls - 28 Actresses of Late 1920s and 1930s Hollywood by Hans J. Wollstein - 56 photos, filmographies, bibliography, index, 284 oages, (7 x 10) 2005 [McFarland] The floozy, the gangster’s moll, the nasty debutante: Most Hollywood actresses played at least one of these bad girls in the 1930s. Since censorship customarily demanded that goodness prevail, vixens were in mainly supporting roles—but the actresses who played them were often colorful scene stealers. These characters and the women who played them first began to appear in film in 1915 when Theda Bara played home-wrecker Elsie Drummond in The Vixen. Movie theaters filled and the industry focused on heaving bosoms and ceaseless lust. Bara never shed the vamp image. The type evolved into the flapper, the gangster’s moll, the “dame,” and the “bad girl.” This work covers the lives and careers of 28 actresses, providing details about their lives and giving complete filmographies of their careers. About the Author: Hans J. Wollstein has appeared as an actor on screen and in television in Denmark, Germany and the United States. Retired from performing, he now lives in his native Copenhagen. 

$29.95 -- The W.C. Fields Films by James L. Neibaur -  50 photos, notes, bibliography, index, (6 x 9) 2017, McFarland - Not Yet Published, Available 1/2017 - W.C. Fields was one of the top comedians during Hollywood’s Golden Era of the 1930s and 1940s and has since remained a comic icon. Despite his character’s misanthropic, child-hating, alcoholic tendencies, his performances were enduringly popular and Fields became personally defined by them. This critical study of his work provides commentary and background on each of his films, from the early silents through the cameos near the end of his life, with fresh appraisals of his well known classics. Pictures once believed to be lost that have been discovered and restored are discussed, and new information is given on some that remain lost. About the Author: James L. Neibaur is a film historian and educator with more than a dozen books and articles in Cineaste, Classic Images, Film Quarterly, Films in Review, Filmfax, and Encyclopædia Britannica.

$14.95 – The Green Hornet Street Car Disaster (Paperback) by Craig Allen Cleve - Publisher: Northern Illinois Univ Press - Publish Date: 06/30/2015 - As rush hour came to a close on the evening of May 25, 1950, one of Chicago’s new fast, colorful, streamlined streetcars—known as a Green Hornet—slammed into a gas truck at State Street and 62nd Place. The Hornet’s motorman allegedly failed to heed the warnings of a flagger attempting to route it around a flooded underpass, and the trolley, packed with commuters on their way home, barreled into eight thousand gallons of gasoline. The gas erupted into flames, poured onto State Street, and quickly engulfed the Hornet, shooting flames two hundred and fifty feet into the air. More than half of the passengers escaped the inferno through the rear window, but thirty-three others perished, trapped in front of the streetcar’s back door, which failed to stay open in the ensuing panic. It was Chicago’s worst traffic accident ever—and the worst two-vehicle traffic accident in U.S. history.Unearthing a forgotten chapter in Chicago lore, The Green Hornet Streetcar Disaster tells the riveting tale of this calamity. Combing through newspaper accounts as well as the Chicago Transit Authority’s official archives, Craig Cleve vividly brings to life this horrific catastrophe. Going beyond the historical record, he tracks down individuals who were present on that fateful day on State and 62nd: eyewitnesses, journalists, even survivors whose lives were forever changed by the accident. Weaving these sources together, Cleve reveals the remarkable combination of natural events, human error, and mechanical failure that led to the disaster, and this moving history recounts them—as well as the conflagration’s human drama—in gripping detail.
