I think I’d love to have this as a “digital copy” for a coffee table, but for me, nothing replaces a huge book that celebrates my favorite film in all its glossy finery. With Ben-Hur, An American in Paris, Casablanca, and North by Northwest, WB couldn’t have chosen better films to prove me an old curmudgeon.
