Every film profile is packed with details including the director and cast, a plot summary and production notes, and little-known facts relating to the film's history.

It then covers blockbusters of the more recent past like "Gone with the Wind," "A Clockwork Orange," "Avatar," and "The Black Swan." Also described are Hollywood's most memorable musicals, great dramas, screwball comedies, experimental "New Wave" films from 1950s and '60s Europe, major films noir, classic westerns, action and adventure films, and outstanding documentaries.
