Description - All the Best Lines: An Informal History of the Movies in Quotes, Notes and Anecdotes by George Tiffin

An informal history of the movies told through some of cinema's best-loved scenes, from the early days of Hollywood to the present day.

Pithy put-downs, hard-boiled snarlings, words of love and regret... All the Best Lines presents 500 memorable movie quotes, embracing both one-liners ('My name is Pussy Galore') and slices of snappy dialogue from pictures as diverse as When Harry Met Sally and Pulp Fiction. Arranged under such timeless themes as Dreams, Friends, Libido and Memories, the quotes juxtapose films and stars from every era and every genre.

Dotted throughout the text are feature capsules focusing on themes and stories in the movies from Goldwynisms to Mae West, plus a generous scattering of cinema anecdotes, making the book both a joy to browse and an authoritative reference.

Lavishly illustrated with full-colour photographs, All the Best Lines will delight and entertain you in equal measure, reacquainting you with your favourite movies and introducing you to some forgotten classics.

Buy All the Best Lines: An Informal History of the Movies in Quotes, Notes and Anecdotes by George Tiffin from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
