Steven H. Scheuer’s TV Movie Almanac

TV movie

I think that this may have been the very first “dictionary style” entertainment guide-book. I’m not sure whether this was the very first one or the second.  I think that he put it out every year from 1958 to 1993.  That’s thirty-five years.

Leonard Maltin started his series ten years later in 1969.  Since then, film critics such as Roger Ebert and David Thomson have put out books of their reviews.  Since, there have been countless books of capsule reviews in both film and music.

I think that it started here.  He didn’t have the directors listed at first.  He did have the year, the actors and a star rating.
