Produced by Turner Classic Movies, this stylish and definitive guide (a companion to Leading Ladies) has the inside scoop and off-the-record reveals of fifty unforgettable actors and is also the focus of a month-long film festival on the channel. The lives and accomplishments of each actor is celebrated in an insightful career overview, accompanied by an annotated list of essential films, filmographies, behind the scenes facts, Academy Award wins and nominations. Full of surprising trivia, film stills, posters, and stunning photos, Leading Men pays tribute to the most charismatic, enduring, and elegant actors of the silver screen-an essential resource for movie buffs and pop-culture enthusiasts alike. Produced with a bright, fresh, and gifty approach that we've seen contribute to the success of the rest of our TCM line, breaking it out of the expected b/w classic film mold.
