Summary :

Edited by: Peter Haining

Stories of crime and detection have inspired some of the most popular movies and television seri of the 20th century. Hollywood, film makers and television producers alike have based some of their successful works on original novels and short stories of murder and mystery. This collection of stories and the facts about how films and TV dramas were filmed is divided into two sections: the first features the which have inspired films and the second those made into TV dramas or series. The authors of the original works amount to a roll call of the great names of crime fiction.
