I found this a truly one-of-a-kind look at the movie business from those who really make it magic -- the movie directors. Through both narrative and interviews, this comprehensive compendium reveals both the personal and professional lives of these directors as well as their personal thoughts and feelings about their movies, the movie business and some of the actors they have worked with over the years. Contains some photos and a full listing of each director's film. This is a must have for anyone serious about the history and business of movie making.
"A huge and valuable book . . . Bogdanovich includes everything: history, technique, gossip, minutiae."
The New York Times Book Review
"A RARE PEEK AT THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF THE MOVIEMAKING BUSINESS . . . Bogdanovich gets Hawks to explain how he kept an insouciant Katharine Hepburn in line by threatening to 'kick [her] behind' in Bringing Up Baby. . . . Hitchcock derides the 'front office' that can't understand why Janet Leigh would be killed off so early in Psycho. . . . Siegel is furious about execs who insisted on grafting their own opening and ending onto 1956's Invasion of the Body Snatchers. . . . Delightful . . . Eloquent."
"ENLIGHTENING . . . His remarkable access, conversational method of interviewing, and status as a peer in the industry provoked [these directors] to describe in detail their motivations, methods, and madnesses in making the most memorable movies of the twentieth century."
--The Washington Post Book World
"CHOCKABLOCK WITH ODD FACTS AND FASCINATING ANECDOTES . . . The interviews . . . encompass nearly the entire span of motion picture history."
--Los Angeles Times
