Removed deletion tag[edit]

This is not true at all. It is a very popular book and spawned numerous "sequels" such as 1001 albums and 1001 books as well as being rereleased with new editions. A google search of the title IN QUOTATIONS brings up 47,600 results! DarkSideOfTheSpoon 06:40, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Okay, it is back up[edit]

The wikipedia policy states:

  1. n order to have a verifiable article, a topic must be notable enough that it will be described by multiple independent sources.
  2. In order to have a neutral article with minimal errors, a topic must be notable enough that there will be non-partisan editors interested in editing it.
  3. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. As such, Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate directory of businesses, websites, persons, etc.

The book meets this criteria. Can whoever put this notice up please discuss what their apparent problem is? Cheers.DarkSideOfTheSpoon 06:52, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

First of all, you provided ZERO sources (which is one of the most basic rules of Wikipedia). Are we just supposed to take your word that it meets the criteria? Second of all, take a look at Wikipedia:Notability (books). That is the guideline for books here. A glance at the book guideline shows that the article does not pass any of the requirements.

No sources? I had the external link to the review on about.com, and considering that the article is currently only a stub I don't see how that isn't sufficent to verify the content.
As for it not passing the notability test for books- that is plain wrong.
"A book is generally notable if it verifiably meets one or more of the following criteria:
1. The book's author meets Wikipedia's notability criteria for people, based on his/her work as a writer."[1]
The book's main author and editor, Steven Jay Schneider, passes this criteria. The wikipedia criteria for an author being notable is:
"Published authors, editors and photographers who received multiple independent reviews of or awards for their work"[2]
Reviews? Check out the amazon page for 1001 Movies: [3]. There are 10 reviews there alone (not from users- actual real reviews) not to mention his other works.
Is that sufficent? DarkSideOfTheSpoon 10:22, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
Then put those sources in the article(if they are true), it is your job to proove it is notable, not our job to proove it's not notable. TJ Spyke 20:08, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
What is your problem, mate? Go to any other stub on Wikipedia and there is almost never more than one source. The external link was sufficent evidence to prove it was notable in the first place, but since you are so bloody anal I will add some more. Goodbye. DarkSideOfTheSpoon 01:37, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:1001moviescover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:1001moviescover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Movies from previous editions[edit]

Let's make a list of movies that disappeared in every new editions. Constant Gardener (2005) is one such film. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.103.63.216 (talk) 01:15, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

No, there's no point in collecting that information here. -Gohst (talk) 03:04, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

25 Documentaries[edit]

There are some problems in this section. First, there are 27 films listed. Second, the 26th film is a Bollywood movie (!!). --201.235.218.229 (talk) 15:00, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Non-English editions[edit]

The book has been published in many languages. The non-English editions include some local titles (20 in Finland according to the Finnish Wikipedia). Also, In the Finnish edition, for example, the foreword is written by Kari Hotakainen and synopses for the Finnish movies are written by Pasi Nyyssönen. I would appreciate if someone added some information about the non-English editions. Memasa (talk) 09:10, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
