      There's a new book that just came out called George Lucas's Blockbusting: A Decade-by-Decade Survey of Timeless Movies including Untold Secrets of Their Financial Success.  It consists mostly of essays on 300 movies, chosen fairly evenly from every year from 1913 to 2005.  They are mostly chosen according to their inflation-adjusted domestic grosses, but there are other mysterious factors that determined which movies are included.  In fact, George Lucas ultimately decided which movies would get essays.  He is neither the editor nor one of the writers (except for a short preface) of this book though.
       
      In any case, one of the movies included is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.  Rosaleen O'Byrne, who wrote the essay on this film, has the following to say about Lewis's creation of the Narnia stories:
       
      > In the early 1900s, ensconced in a wardrobe, wrapped in an old coat, a
      young C. S. Lewis told stories to
      > his brother, not knowing that eventually his fantasy tales would sell
      more than 100 million books.
       
      Have fun picking this apart.
