151 Best Movies You've Never Seen (2010)

 Film critic Leonard Maltin is probably best know for his annual reference guide to movies, which has been published since 1969. Now he has written a small paperback book to urge movie goers to experience some of the films he has enjoyed that have never gained the audiences they deserved.

With just a brief 2-3 pages about each title, the reader gets a sense of why the film was chosen by Mr. Maltin. Although films go as far back as the 1930s, others are as recent as 2009. Major cast members are listed.

Some of the titles were vaguely recognizable but there were only two that I had actually seen (Marvin's Room 1996 and The Prizewinner of Defiance Ohio 2005). I can join in recommending these two. In the meantime, I now have a new list of thirty movies to see.

  1. I just realized that the book I am reading in the picture is "The Prizewinner of Defiance Ohio"!
