Great Animals of the movies
From the Book Jacket:
Audiences love animals. Actors, however, would rather not share a scene with 
animal stars. The animal always steals the scene and wins the hearts of the 
audience in the process.
In his new book Great Animals of the Movies, Ed Edelson brings us into the 
world of the greatest animal stars of the movies and of television. Stars 
like Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Flicka, Mr. Ed, Morris the Finicky Cat, Flipper, 
and even make-believe animals like Bruce the man-eating shark of Jaws, King 
Kong, Godzilla, and many more. We meet some of their trainers, and learn 
some funny and charming anecdotes about these furry or not-so- furry animal 
stars whom we know and love.
Edelson also gives the reader the inside behind-the-scenes story of how the 
animals are taught to "act" and all about stunt animals, stand-ins, and even 
the backstage gossip about the animals and their human costars. This is a 
fun book for animal lovers and movie lovers too. The pictures are wonderful 
and add more fun to this entertaining book.

Edward Edelson spends most of his working hours as  the science editor of 
the New York Daily News, but he still manages to find the time to watch 
plenty of movies. A graduate of New York University and, a Sloan-Rockefeller 
Fellow in the Advanced Science Writing Program  at Columbia University, 
Mr.   Edelson   now  lives   in Jamaica, New York, with his wife and three 
children. His previous books include Great Monsters of the Movies, The  Book 
of  Prophecy,   Visions  of Tomorrow, Funny Men of the Movies, Great   Movie 
Spectaculars,   Tough Guys and Gals of the Movies, and Great Kids of the
