Inhaltsangabe: In addition to rounding up the 50 worst movies of all time with an insightful and skewering wit, the author turns his attention to the tacky trends and beaten-to-death genres that have filled double bills for decades. What was the worst Elvis movie? The lamest Madonna movie? They're all here, along with an affectionate round-up of the "Baddest of the Bs", those ultra-tacky, low-budget movies that have earned them everlasting distinction in the pantheon of schlock.
From Booklist: No movie book collection should be without this fresh look at cinema's dregs. Concentrating on fairly recent American fare (who can argue with that?), Sauter serves up the obvious choices (Ed Wood flicks, Heaven's Gate), the awful but forgotten (Myra Breckinridge, The Green Berets), and the once revered but truly terrible (The Greatest Show on Earth, A Summer Place). Making flouting accepted film-buff evaluations one of the book's strengths, he recaps the plot, mentions notable performances, and cites behind-the-scenes madness for each film. Like many chroniclers of bad stuff, Sauter seems to secretly enjoy junk, which, given the likes of Liz Taylor's Cleopatra and Howard the Duck, is easy to do. Of course, with all the trash Hollyweird offers, some of it had to fail to make Sauter's cut. Yet if Mommie Dearest deserves inclusion (and it does), why not Imitation of Life (either version) or The Alamo? Oh, well. Grab Sauter to browse while screening Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and you won't be sorry--about the book. Mike Tribby
