Leonard Maltin reviews "The Sea Gull" [Aug. 10th, 2010|04:41 pm]
Well-known, USA film critic and reviewer, Leonard Maltin, reviews "The Sea Gull" by Linda Wada, along with Donna Hill's "Rudolph Valentino The Silent Idol" and Thomas Gladysz's "The Diary of a Lost Girl" about Louise Brooks. More>

"I sometimes decry the decline of professionalism in various disciplines—including publishing—but I can’t think of a better argument for breaking down the barriers of traditional publishing than these three exceptional books, which I doubt any commercial house would have taken on. They may be labors of love but they also convey a commitment to both scholarship and the esthetics of the printed page." - Leonard Maltin, film critic, Crazy Movies
