Finished reading it a few hours after I bought it on sale
I didn't really learn new information but I'm happy with my acquisition. Nice selection of pictures.
It's fitting that the first cinema related book I bought is about the first actor I held as my favourite.
I really want to get the one about Ingrid Bergman, of the same collection

This has lots of high quality photos with little information but the photos alone are worth it.
