Lee, Walt

Tagged: Author | Critic

(1931-    ) US film-writer and consultant with a 1954 BS in physics. His monumental, self-published Reference Guide to Fantastic Films: Volume 1 A-F (1972), Volume 2 G-O (1973) and Volume 3 P-Z (1974) contains upwards of 20,000 entries. Fantasy, occult and horror films feature more largely than pure sf, but the latter is dealt with thoroughly. The work remains a useful research tool for anyone dealing with sf Cinema, although commentary on the actual content of the films it covers is very minimal. He later collaborated with Richard Delap on an sf horror novel about a shape-changing Alien, Shapes (1987). [PN]
