Product description

From Booklist

This new title in the publisher's Reference Guide to the World's Cinema presents an A-Z look at Canadian cinema, beginning with the 1914 (and now lost) feature-length film Evangeline, based on Longfellow's poem about the expulsion of the Acadians from Canada to Louisiana. Among the entries are brief biographies of Raymond Burr, Colleen Dewhurst, Donald Sutherland, and many others who have made a mark internationally. RBB

?There is a humble quality in this remarkable reference book, humility towards its subject matter and towards a tradition of historical film research, exemplified for Rist by the work of William Everson (to whom he dedicates the book), and sustained to our benefit by Rist and his collaborators....[v]aluable archival work....[o]ffers much-needed information on Canadian cinema.?-Canadian Journal of Film Studies
