The images and memories that matter most are those that are unshakeable, unforgettable. Kenneth Turan's fifty-four favourite films embrace a century of the world's most satisfying romances and funniest comedies, the most heart-stopping dramas and chilling thrillers.Turan discovered film as a child left undisturbed to watch Million Dollar Movie on WOR-TV Channel 9 in New York, a daily showcase for older Hollywood features. It was then that he developed a love of cinema that never left him and honed his eye for the most acute details and the grandest of scenes. Not to be Missed blends cultural criticism, historical anecdote, and inside-Hollywood controversy. Turan's selection of favourites ranges across all genres. From All About Eve to Seven Samurai to Sherlock Jr. , these are all timeless films,classic and contemporary, familiar and obscure, with big budgets and small,each underscoring the truth of director Ingmar Bergman's observation that no form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul."
