Not to Be Missed: Fifty-four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film

Author: Kenneth Turan

Narrator: Todd McLaren

Unabridged: 9 hr 3 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Published: 09/01/2014

Genre: Performing Arts

Synopsis

Kenneth 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 anecdotes, and inside-Hollywood controversy. Turan's selection of favorites ranges across all genres. From All About Eve to Seven Samurai to Sherlock Jr., these are all timeless films, 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."
