If so, do you remember Richard Dreyfuss' travelling companion in Close Encounters of the Third Kind? Or Clint Eastwood's partner in Dirty Harry? How about Michael J. Fox's father in Back to the Future? Harrison Ford's Egyptian friend Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Chances are you remember them, but you might not know their names or recall other movies you've seen them in. The Players is a comprehensive photographic guide to 1,000 film actors and actresses whose movies are most likely to air on television or be available in video stores. They are supporting players and lesser-known stars but not household names. You may recognize their faces, but you might not be able to identify them. Robert Redford, Eddie Murphy and Jane Fonda are too well-known to be in this book. But what about Vincent Gardenia? Jack Weston? Melinda Dillon? Crispin Glover? All of the performers in this book have appeared frequently in feature films in principal roles during the last 30 years.

You'll have the fun of instant recognition when you place the face with a name and a character. The Players is packed with large photographs, the actors' movie credits, the names of the characters they played and concise biographical sketches. An index of nearly 4,000 movie titles allows you to look up the movie you're watching and locate the actor. Along the with popcorn this book is an invaluable movieviewing companion. You'll never have to wonder again who an actor is or where you've seen him before....
