|An enormous number of books have been used as resources in the
construction of this site, and you'll find many of them listed on the
various "Bibliography" pages that appear in the sections about
specific people and films. Unfortunately, due to the very
transient nature of classic-movie related books, most of those
consulted in the construction of this site are out-of-print, making
them hard to find. Don't despair however. Reel Classics
has friends who can help you.
Full Circle Book Store:
Everyone knows about the big online book dealers, and
there are links for them on this page. However,
Full Circle Book Store in Oklahoma City is the official book
retailer of ReelClassics.com and the staff there go out of their way
to help my visitors find the classic movie-related books they're
looking for--be they in or out of print. Full Circle can get any
book in print and ship it anywhere in the world. They're also
good at hunting down those hard-to-find out-of-print titles.
Contact Full Circle through their web site or call them toll-free in
the U.S. at 1-800-683-READ. Be sure to give them your name,
email address, and a day-time phone number. Tell them Elizabeth
sent you too!
FOR BOOKS STILL IN PRINT: These can be purchased
FOR OUT-OF-PRINT BOOKS: Let
Full Circle know the title and author. They will run a free
out-of-print book search for you and, if they find a copy of the
book, will tell you its condition and price. There's no
obligation--you can take it or leave it.
IF IT'S STILL IN PRINT?: No problem. Tell Full Circle what you
know about it and they'll find out for you. If it's in print,
they can order it. It it's out of print, they can run a search
Believe me when I tell you this is the best way to
find classic movie-related books. The staff at Full Circle know their
business well and offer old-fashioned customer service, the likes of
which you just can't find most places these days.
