Leonard Maltin is a film historian and correspondent for the syndicated newsmagazine "Entertainment Tonight" (ET), the No. 1 syndicated entertainment newsmagazine in the world.

Leonard Maltin is one of the entertainment industry's most respected authorities on cinema. In addition to interviewing the world's most prolific filmmakers and actors as film correspondent on ET, Maltin is widely recognized for his annual best-selling paperback reference book, "Leonard Maltin's Video Guide." Maltin also hosts "The Secret's Out" on the Reelz! Channel and he is also a contributor to movielink.com. He co-produces the popular DVD collection of "Walt Disney Treasures" and can be found hosting a series of John Wayne feature films for Paramount Home Video, as well as the "Night at the Movies" segments for Warner Home Video.

Maltin also teaches at the University of Southern California School of Cinema and Television and hosts "Leonard Maltin's Video View," a daily radio feature that airs on KNX-AM 1070 in Los Angeles.

Maltin has also authored a number of cinema-related books and articles during his career, including "The Great American Broadcast," "Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons," "The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang" (as co-author), "Leonard Maltin's Family Film Guide," "The Great Movie Comedians," "The Disney Films" and "The Art of the Cinematographer and Selected Short Subjects." His articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, TV Guide, Esquire, Premiere, Smithsonian, Film Comment and Disney Magazine, among others.

As a member of the National Film Preservation Board, Maltin votes on the 25 films named each year to join the National Film Registry in the Library of Congress.
