You'll see how directors slip in subtle references to their earlier works and pay tribute to (or toss bricks at) friends and co-workers. You'll learn actors' favorite on-screen quirks, and you'll have a guide to cameo appearances by famous directors in their own films, and much, much more from the author of the best-selling Film Flubs books.
