George E. Turner was the editor of American Cinematographer Magazine from 1986 to 1992. His career ranged from working as a reporter, writer, cartoonist, storyboard artist, and a special effects crew member. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of movies and was a great fan of "B" movies. He drew the original drawing in the front of the book for Diane Peterson, a well-known San Francisco Bay Area bookseller. Linwood G. Dunn was a pioneer of special effects and invented some of the technology for this area of film. He was the part of the effects team that created the original King Kong in 1933. From the front cover flap, this book is "A fascinating overview of the film industry's most mysterious and exciting art, the creation of special visual effects". Oversized, may require additional shipping.
