Book by Lennig Arthur


"Lennig is a serious researcher and he offers new film criticism and a thorough understanding of Lugosi's Hungarian background, his Hollywood years, five marriages and drug addiction." -- News at Cinema Books "To judge from Lennig's admiring new biography, the director's worst enemy was indisputably himself." -- Washington Post Book World "A monument to the awful Good Old Days of an infant Hollywood." -- Times Literary Supplement "Definitive is certainly the word for it." -- Sight and Sound "One of the most important books ever written on cinema history. This is a triumph." -- Rick Schmidlin, re-edit producer, Greed and Touch of Evil "To keep track of everything that happened to von Stroheim's films requires a dogged determination, and Lennig is up to that task.... Definitely a labor of love." -- New York Times Book Review "An extremely readable book, this biography manages to convey Lennig's appreciation of Stroheim's genius.... Highly recommended." -- Library Journal "A definitive biography." -- Boston Globe "Lennig's expertise makes this the best Stroheim book by far." -- Booklist "Lennig has unearthed the Austrian documents that establish Stroheim's true background." -- Wall Street Journal "Sets most of the record straight and has a shrewd sense of Stroheim's art, which was really an extravagant expression of his own personality." -- San Diego Union-Tribune "In a thrilling biography of one of Hollywood's great originals, Lennig strips away the legends surrounding director/actor Erich von Stroheim.... Lennig's masterful knowledge of film history and technique informs this penetrating biography." -- Publishers Weekly "Calls to mind the film societies of another era, the noise of a 16mm projector at the back of the room, the smell of mimeograph programme notes." -- London Review of Books "A magisterial, crazily comprehensive biographical study of the original renegade director. Provides a definitive portrait of the notorious director and, in his accounting of the follies of art met by commerce, an affecting cultural history." -- Kirkus Reviews "I doubt we'll see a better-done examination of Stroheim." -- H-Net Reviews "The real story of Erich Oswald Hans Carl Maria von Stroheim is far more interesting and psychologically compelling than the legend ever could be." -- Hartford Courant "Lennig took on the task of unpacking the legend, finding the truth. No one could have accomplished this task better." -- Choice
