Product Description:

Long recognized as the definitive reference work on the hundreds of science fiction movies that from 1950 through 1962 terrified and fascinated a generation with zombified teenagers, robots, invading aliens and monsters of every kind, Bill Warren's Keep Watching the Skies! is greatly expanded in this 21st Century Edition. With new entries on several films, it also revisits, revises and expands the commentary on every film in the 1982 and 1986 two-volume edition.

In addition to a detailed plot synopsis, cast and credit listings, and an overview of each film's critical reception, Warren delivers richly informative assessments of the films and a wealth of insights and anecdotes about their making, often drawing on remarks by the filmmakers that have emerged in the quarter century since the original edition. The book is arranged by film title, contains 273 photographs (many rare, some in color), has seven useful appendices, and concludes with an enormous index.

This Book Will Blow You Away! Customer: from Tullahoma, TN US -- February, 19, 2010

This marks my second purchase from and it is AWESOME! Aside from the great service I got in getting it, the book itself is a MUST for any fan of 50s and 60s science fiction. Every film is covered and the depth and detail is truly amazing. It is the kind of book that is a joy to curl up with and I look forward to every
opportunity to do so. It is chock full of rare photos and poster reproductions and all the kinds of info a true fan could want.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and pick this up... You wont regret it!!!!
