LEONARD MALTIN

Leonard Maltin is one of the world’s most respected film critics and historians. He is best known for his widely-used reference work Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide and its companion volume Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide, as well as his 30-year run on television’s Entertainment Tonight. He teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, appears regularly on TCM and hosts the weekly podcast “Maltin on Movies” with his daughter Jessie. His books include Hooked on HollywoodThe 151 Best Movies You’ve Never SeenOf Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated CartoonsThe Great Movie ComediansThe Disney FilmsThe Art of the CinematographerMovie Comedy TeamsThe Great American Broadcast and Leonard Maltin’s Movie Encyclopedia. He served two terms as President of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, is a voting member of the National Film Registry and was appointed by the Librarian of Congress to sit on the Board of Directors of the National Film Preservation Foundation. He hosted and co-produced the popular Walt Disney Treasures DVD series and has appeared on innumerable television programs and documentaries. He is the recipient of awards from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, American Society of Cinematographers, the Telluride Film Festival, George Eastman House, Anthology Film Archives and San Diego’s Comic-Con International. Perhaps the pinnacle of his career was his appearance in a now-classic episode of South Park. (Or was it Carmela consulting his movie guide on an episode of The Sopranos?) He holds court at leonardmaltin.com. Follow him on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
