While watching a movie, how many viewers notice some of the finer details of the film, such as the time of day during a scene—or even the date itself? For instance, does anyone remember what day detention is served by the high schoolers in The Breakfast Club or can guess when aliens first make their presence known in Independence Day? And perhaps only history buffs or fanatics of Leonardo DiCaprio can cite the exact date the Titanic sunk.

A Year of Movies: 365 Films to Watch on the Date They Happened Ivan Walters provides a selection for every day on the calendar in which at least some of the events in the film take place. For some films, the entire drama occurs on a very specific day. For other films, such as The Right Stuff, the date in question is represented in a key scene or two or even for just a few pivotal seconds. Certain films, to be sure, are obvious candidates for inclusion in this book. What other movie would make sense to watch on February 2nd than Groundhog Day? Is there a more appropriate film to consider for June 6th than The Longest Day? Representing a variety of genres—from comedies and dramas to westerns and film noir—these films offer fans a unique viewing opportunity.

While helping viewers decide what to watch on a given day, this book will also introduce readers to films they may not have otherwise considered. Aimed at film buffs and casuals viewers alike,
A Year of Movies is also an ideal resource for librarians who want to offer creative programming for their patrons.
