Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joe Morgenstern (born 3 October 1932) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for The Wall Street Journal. Morgenstern graduated from Lehigh University in 1953. His first journalism experience was as news clerk at the New York Times. He then became foreign correspondent for the Times, based in Switzerland and France. Morgenstern became an entertainment reporter for the New York Herald Tribune in 1959, later advancing to theater/music critic. Beginning in 1965 until 1983 Morgenstern was film critic for Newsweek. During this time, his most famous review was when he initially panned Bonnie and Clyde and then reconsidered his opinion seriously enough to retract it in the next issue. That proved a golden marketing opportunity for Warner Brothers to attract interest in the film by noting it made a major film critic change his mind about its virtues. From 1983 to 1988 he wrote a column for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner.
