REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Leonard Maltin Biography

Leonard Maltin is a respected film critic and historian, perhaps best known for his annual paperback reference Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, which was first published in 1969 and is now available as iPhone and iPad app. It was joined by Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide in 2005, newly revised in 2010. His latest book is Leonard Maltin's 151 Best Movies You've Never Seen.

Maltin hosts the weekly program Maltin on Movies on ReelzChannel and introduces pay-per-view movies for Comcast; for 30 years he appeared on television's Entertainment Tonight, and for three years co-hosted the movie review show Hot Ticket. He teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and was a member of the faculty at the New School for Social Research in New York City.

His other books include Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia, The Great American Broadcast, The Great Movie Comedians, The Disney Films, Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons, The Art of the Cinematographer, Selected Short Subjects, and (as co-author) The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The London Times, Premiere, Smithsonian, TV Guide, Esquire, and The Village Voice. For six years he was film critic for Playboy magazine.

Leonard Maltin has served as guest curator at the Museum of Modern Art, and was president of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association in 1995 and 1996. In 1997 he was named to the National Film Preservation Board, and in 2006 was selected by the Librarian of Congress to sit on the Board of Directors for the National Film Preservation Foundation. He also created, hosted, and co-produced the Walt Disney Treasures DVD series. 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 publishes a newsletter for old-movie buffs, "Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy."

  • Living—and Thriving—with Parkinson’s

    Movie critic and TV personality Leonard Maltin speaks candidly about how he has dealt with the sobering diagnosis that he received four years ago. Initially worried that sharing his Parkinson’s diagnosis would affect his very active professional life, Maltin decided to follow the example of others in Hollywood, including Michael J. Fox and Alan Alda, to publicly proclaim — and openly share — that he is living with Parkinson’s. Upon request, Leonard can be joined by his loving wife, Alice, who shares the perspective of the life partner/caregiver of someone with Parkinson’s.
