Spanning titles and eras from The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg (1927) to Three Kings (1999), Screen Savers: 40 Remarkable Movies Awaiting Rediscovery by John DiLeo is not the typical collection of nostalgia-minded movie reviews. DiLeo provides such detailed analyses and enlightening critiques that readers will finish the book eager to view all of the forty films featured in his third and latest book. Movie-goers of all persuasions will discover fresh spins on the careers of famous stars and new insights into the screen’s essential genres. Screen Savers unearths cinematic gems that haven’t been as praised or well-remembered as they deserve to be. The book also sets the historical context for the films and discusses the reasons why these movies may have been unjustly overlooked. Screen Savers restores and intensifies each film’s considerable merits, making the book a tribute to movies that even the most devout film fan may have missed.
