I never thought a such a beloved subject could be framed in an intellectually boring way. Well, thats what Telotte's done here with his book, "Science Fiction Film." The book reads more like an essay on Faulkner, rather than an essay on exploding planets and alien abductions. I simply can't recommend anyone read this book, but if you were unfortunate enough to have and enrolled in a class where it is required reading, all I can say is good luck.

I have not read this entire book, but thank you, Amazon.com, for providing a sample of a page. This book starts to talk about how comic strips and comic books influenced science fiction movies and serials, which is a valid point. They mention, as a significant example, Captain Marvel. However, they say that it was Marvel Comics' Captain Marvel, drawn by "Clyde" Beck. The CM in question was actually published by Fawcett Comics and was originally drawn by Charles Clarence Beck.

I hope the rest of the book does not make such blatant errors.
