9780786495009: Behind the Scenes of They Were Expendable: A Pictorial History

In 1945 U.S. Navy photographer Nick Scutti found himself in the Florida Keys on the set of the classic World War II drama They Were Expendable, taking candid shots of director John Ford, stars Robert Montgomery and John Wayne and the supporting cast and crew. Scutti's never before published collection of fully captioned photos provides a unique chronicle of the 30-day location shoot, revealing details of the making of the film and in some instances disproving certain statements made by MGM publicity and Ford himself. Brief biographies are included of the stars of the film and of the men the film was based upon.

Review:

"A fascinating untold story of one of the greatest movie makers and film stars in American history...a great read." --The Washington Book Review

"More than a pictorial history. It is a full-on document of an enduring film classic helmed by one of American cinema's most important directors. This pictorial history allows us to visually explore the making of this classic film. In-depth chapters show Sabini's understanding of the film and its place in American cinema's history. One of the most important, interesting, and informative film books of this year. Recommended." --Examiner

"Remarkable...we are transported back in time to experience some of the feeling of a major movie shoot.... How exciting to discover so much about an important film seventy years after its creation." --Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy

Descripción McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Here you will find a collection of exquisite, candid photographs taken during the 30-day location shoot of the World War II drama, They Were Expendable. This is the first and only time that the making of a classic motion picture was chronicled pictorially. The photographs have been fully captioned and the book covers all details about the making of the movie, including some new information never before revealed until now. There are numerous vivid recollections by photographer Nick Scutti, who got to mingle with the likes of John Ford, Robert Montgomery and John Wayne as well as many of the supporting members of the cast and technicians. Through these pictures, we get to see exactly what went on before the cameras began rolling and afterward. In some instances, many statements previously made by MGM publicity and John Ford himself (which have been documented in other books), are disproven by these shots. The book also contains brief biographies of the main stars of the film as well as the two men the book (and movie) were based upon. The publication of this book also coincides with the 70th anniversary of the original release of the film.For World War II aficionados or anyone who loves this classic movie or the films of John Ford and/or John Wayne, this is a delightful treasure trove of new information, never before published.
