Summary

From the early passions of the 'Latin Lover of the silver screen', to the adventures of modem-day heroes such as Antonio Banderas, this is an illuminating voyage into the careers and contributions of some of film history's most legendary performers. The book is a fascinating Who's Who of superstars, including Jennifer Lopez, Andy Garcia, Salma Hayek, Cameron Diaz, Freddie Prinze Jr, Jimmy Smits, John Leguizamo, Penelope Cruz and many more. The book gives readers not an entertaining but also an important record of Hispanic contributions to the greatest art form of the twentieth century. Some 400 films and television shows from the past years are listed with credits, synopses, production information relating to Hispanic stars and their contributions, as well as critical commentary. Contains an alphabetical listing of Hispanic/Latino actors, actresses, directors, producers and other behind-the-scenes people, together with their biographies. The book is beautifully illustrated with black-and-white photographs' selected from co-author Luis Reyes' personal collection.
