Top 10 books on film

Michael Wood is Charles Barnwell Start Professor of English and Professor of Comparative Literature, Princeton University. His books include Film: A Very Short Introduction.

For the Guardian, he named his top ten books on film.

One title on the list:
The Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers Book by Arlene Croce (1972)

It's very hard to write about movement, and Croce manages the almost unheard-of feat of being faithful to the lightness of art, catching so much of what is remarkable about Astaire and Rogers's work.
Read about another book on the list.
