The most valuable information on Cinemania is taken from The Motion
Picture Guide, published by CineBooks.  Updated by annual volumes, it
contains details of films from the silent era to the present, although
I'm not sure if it was still publishing after 1994.  The Cinemania disk
does not always have all the information in the reference books--but
even the books can be incomplete or contain errors.  (As always, the
subjective analyses of individual films are subject to argument!)  It
is still a useful resource, though.
