    On September 29th 1981, Peter Turner received a phone call that would change his life. His one-time lover, the Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame, had collapsed in a Lancaster hotel and was refusing medical attention. He had no choice but to take her into his chaotic and often eccentric family home in Liverpool.

    Liverpool born and bred, Turner had first set eyes on Grahame during a trip to London as an aspiring actor. Best known for her portrayal of irresistible femmes fatales in films such as Crossfire and The Bad and the Beautiful, Grahame electrified audiences with her steely expressions and heavy-lidded eyes. Praised for her physical gravitas, the heroines she brought to life were often dark and dangerous. Turner and this remarkable woman became firm friends and it is to him she turned in her final hour of need.

    Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is a moving story of stardom, friendship and love.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The eighth feature film from writer/director Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel, premiered at the 64th International Film Festival in February 2014, winning the Jury Grand Prix Silver Bear award and, shortly after, widespread critical and popular acclaim.

    Centered around Ralph Fiennes’s M. Gustave as the slick beating heart of a meticulously crafted, visually resplendent matryoshka-doll caper-film set primarily in an alternate-history version of 1930s Europe, Grand Budapest Hotel is also, perhaps, the most fullest expression to date of Anderon’s varied thematic and stylistic idiosyncrasies, influences, and obsessions.

    This supplemental one-volume companion to The Wes Anderson Collection (Abrams, 2013) is the only book to take readers behind the scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel with in-depth interviews between Anderson and cultural critic/New York Times bestselling author Matt Zoller Seitz.
    Anderson shares the story behind the film’s conception, the wide variety of sources which inspired it—from author Stefan Zweig to filmmaker Ernst Lubitsch to Photochrom landscapes from turn of- the-century Middle Europe—personal anecdotes about the making of the film, and many other reflections on his filmmaking process. These interviews will be accompanied by behind-the-scenes photos, ephemera, and artwork, all woven together by the same designer, Martin Venezky, and illustrator, Max Dalton, behind The Wes Anderson Collection.

    Forty years and $37 billion later, on the eve of EPISODE VII, the first complete history of STAR WARS - from Lucas's early drafts to the present day.

    Why do most people know what an Ewok is, even if they haven't seen Return of the Jedi? How have Star Wars action figures come to outnumber human beings? How did 'Jedi' become and officially recognised religion? When did the films' merchandising revenue manage to rival the GDP of a small country?

    Tracing the birth, death and rebirth of the epic universe built by George Lucas and hundreds of writers, artists, producers, and marketers, Chris Taylor jousts with modern-day Jedi, tinkers with droid builders, and gets inside Boba Fett's helmet, all to find out how STAR WARS has attracted and inspired so many fans for so long.

    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    From one of the most admired critics of our time, brilliant insights into the act of watching movies and an enlightening discussion about how to derive more from any film experience.

    Since first publishing his landmark Biographical Dictionary of Film in 1975 (now in its sixth edition), David Thomson has been one of the most trusted authorities on all things cinema. Now, he offers his most inventive exploration of the medium yet: guiding us through each element of the viewing experience, considering the significance of everything from what we see and hear on screen - actors, shots, cuts, dialogue, music - to the specifics of how, where, and with whom we do the viewing. With customary candour and wit, Thomson delivers keen analyses of a range of films from classics such as Psycho and Citizen Kane to contemporary fare such as 12 Years a Slave and All Is Lost, revealing how to more deeply appreciate both the artistry and manipulation of film, and how watching movies approaches something like watching life itself.

    Discerning, funny and utterly unique, How to Watch a Movie is a welcome twist on the classic proverb: Give a movie fan a film, she'll be entertained for an hour or two; teach a movie fan to watch, her experience will be enriched forever.
