Prominent film historian and critic Leonard Maltin is known to millions for his regular spot on the syndicated television series Entertainment Tonight where he appeared since the early '80s. On television, he frequently appeared on the Starz cable network and hosted his own syndicated radio program, "Leonard Maltin on Video." Maltin began his writing career at age 15, editing and publishing the Film Fan Monthly, something he did for nine years. After receiving a journalism degree at New York University, Maltin went on to publish articles in a variety of film journals, national newspapers, and magazines, including Variety and TV Guide. As an author, Maltin is best known for Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide, a compendium of constantly updated synopses and interesting film trivia that has been annually published since 1969, but he has also penned several other highly regarded works, including Behind the Camera, a study of the art of cinematography, The Whole Film Sourcebook, Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia, and Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons. In the mid-'90s, he became the president of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and is on the Advisory Board of the Hollywood Entertainment Museum. He spent nearly a decade on the faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York City and constantly goes on lecture tours. A longtime aficionado of animation, Maltin has designed cartoon anthologies for network and cable television and videos.
