American International Pictures was in many ways the missing link between big-budget Hollywood studios, poverty-row B-movie factories and low-rent exploitation movie distributors. AIP first targeted teen audiences with science fiction, horror and fantasy, but soon grew to encompass many genres and demographics-at times, it was indistinguishable from many of the major studios. From Abby to Zontar, this filmography lists more than 800 feature films, television series and TV specials by AIP and its partners and subsidiaries. Special attention is given to American International Television (the TV arm of AIP) and an appendix lists the complete AITV catalog. The author also discusses films produced by founders James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff after they left the company.

A Critical History and Filmography of Toho's Godzilla Series
This thoroughly updated and revised critical account of the Godzilla movie franchise explores the fascinating story behind Japan's most famous movie monster and its development from black-and-white arthouse allegory to international commercial juggernaut. Reviled by critics but boasting a dedicated cult following, the films of the Godzilla franchise provide a unique window into the national identities of both Japan and the United States. This work focuses on how differences in American and Japanese culture, as well as differences in their respective film industries, underlie the discrepancies between the American and Japanese versions of the films. It features detailed filmographic data for both the American and Japanese versions of each film, including plot synopses, cast, credits, and detailed production notes.

George Orwell on Screen: Adaptations, Documentaries and Docudramas on Film and Television
British author and essayist George Orwell shot to fame with two iconic novels: the anti-Stalinist satire Animal Farm and the dystopian masterpiece Nineteen Eighty-Four. Within years of his death in 1950, the CIA was bankrolling movies of both to use as global Cold War propaganda. Orwell's depiction of a Big Brother police state, written as a warning to humanity, fixated the media in the real 1980s. Now, as fears of an electronic surveillance society mount, political events in America have made him a hot property in Hollywood. After years of research and dozens of candid interviews with actors, writers, directors and producers, journalist David Ryan has produced the first authoritative study of Orwell on film and television. Beginning with a CBS play that mirrored the McCarthy witch hunts of the early fifties, he looks in detail at 20 wide-ranging productions, covering every adaptation, major documentary and biopic. Littered with eye-opening anecdotes, and featuring a detailed appraisal of two lost BBC dramatizations from 1965, this unique reference work shows what popular culture has made-and continues to make-of a literary genius whose work has never seemed more relevant.

Watching M*A*S*H , Watching America: A Social History of the 1972-1983 Television Series
It has been said that M*A*S*H was a show set in the 1950s which reflected the shifting values of the 1970s and early 1980s. Hawkeye Pierce, Radar O'Reilly, Trapper John McIntyre, Sherman Porter, Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlihan, B.J. Hunnicutt, Frank Burns, Charles Emerson Winchester, Max Klinger - these and the many other characters who populated the MASH 4077 used the Korean War as a backdrop to comment on many of the social issues of their day. Using a unique blend of comedy and drama, the show's first three seasons (1972-1975) focused on the anti-Vietnam War sentiment that consumed much of America. As Vietnam ended, M*A*S*H moved on to concentrate on other contemporary issues - the women's movement, the rise of the religious right in American politics, the new narcissism that marked the ealy 1980s, the heightened awareness of underage or excessive alcohol use, and the increased emphasis on family in American life. How the series presented these issues and its success in doing so are the subjects of this critical study. An episode listing - brief plot outline, casts and credits, air dates and titles - is also provided.
