Product description

Product Description

Take a journey through the greatest period in cinematic history with '80 From the 80s'. Crammed full of facts, figures and trivia, this book offers the definitive production history behind such beloved gems as WarGames, Heathers, Gremlins and The Lost Boys. Author Lane Myer breaks down each title, charting its inception and writing, through to directing, release and box office performance.

No stone is left unturned, be it the fascinating tale behind the romantic comedy Mannequin and how its entire production and release were carefully orchestrated by one man or how the ground-breaking effects work on The Last Starfighter and Young Sherlock Holmes helped change the industry forever. '80 From the 80s' has all this - and much, much more.
