More reviews of TASHLINESQUE

Everybody -- even Jerry Lewis and Ike Turner -- are talking about TASHLINESQUE!

A few further favorable reviews of my book Tashlinesque: The Hollywood Comedies of Frank Tashlin, have been published recently.

The first of these is more of a favorable comment than a review proper, but, since it comes from John Landis on the excellent website Trailers from Hell, I cannot help but refer to it here. I’ve always felt that Landis’s intense cinephilia makes him one of The Good Guys. And now that he calls my book “essential,” I like him even more!

Much more detailed and favorable is the review of Tashlinesque by Wheeler Winston Dixon, Ryan Professor of Film Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Professor Dixon has some very kind words to say — including “comprehensive” and, my favorite, “a towering achievement” (!!) — on his blog Frame by Frame, which, by the way, is extremely eclectic and educational.

When true lovers of cinema like my book, I am happy.

If you know of any other reviews, please let me know!
