Barry Monush, author/editor of Screen World 2011, visits Movie Addict HQ to discuss his work on the latest edition of this beloved movie anthology series and to talk about the upcoming Acacemy Awards. Barry is also the author of Music on Film: West Side Story, Encyclopedia of Hollywood Film Actors: From the Silent Era to 1965, Everybody’s Talkin’: The Top Films of 1965-1969 and co-author of Lucille Ball FAQ. He recently updated Stanley Green’s Hollywood Musicals: Year by Year.
Barry, who does research for the Paley Center for the Media, admits that he usually can’t stop talking about the Academy Award nominations after they’re announced, so he will be “in rare form” again for this show.
It’s no surprise that Barry lists his major interests as “Movies, Motion Pictures, and Film – in that order.” However, he can also be counted on for trivia pertaining to television, theater and musicals. He confesses “only being qualified to do jobs that require watching television during working hours.”
