Leonard Maltin Profile
LEONARD MALTIN, one of the country's most recognized and respected film critics and historians, is now in his 29th season with television's Entertainment Tonight. But long before he became a familiar face on television, his annual paperback Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide established his reputation; he was 18 when the first edition was published. A perennial best-seller, 'The Guide' has become an indispensable tool for film fans, and the venerable New York Times called it "invaluable." He also edited two companion volumes, Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia and Leonard Maltin's Family Film Guide.
