From a review posted at Amazon.com: LON of 1000 Faces at Amazon
This new edition of Lon of 1000 Faces has a completely revised format, with rescanned and cleaned up images, in fact new copies are printed on a vastly improve press from even the original of this edition and are black and sharp as they have never been. In this book we have included over 1000 stills from Lon's movies,giving an in-depth visual accounting of his films courtesy of the legendary film stills collection of Forrest J Ackerman. Here, Ackerman takes us film by film, utilizing old newspaper clippings, stills, film frames etc and gives us an insightful 'look' into the man's work. As 2littlemoney" said in his review on Amazon.com "There are a number of articles/commentaries by notables such as Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, and Kenneth Strickfadden There is a section on Lon candid shots, newspaper clippings etc., etc., and it all just seems to go on and on . . ."
