What do people think is the best Film Guide? Halliwell's used to be regarded as the bible but I found him to be snobbish and favouring the old over the young. If it was in colour, it was inferior, basically. I transferred my alliegance to Steven Scheuer, while my Dad swore by Leonard Matlin. Then Leslie Halliwell died and a chap called John Walker took over (not, presumably, the NZ runner who was the first man to run 100 sub-4 minute miles), who brought the guides into the modern world while keeping the old name. In these days of IMDB, does anyone really use Film Guides any more anyway? They go out of date so quickly, while IMDB never does - although it can be very unreliable and youth-dominated.
