Robert and Frances Flaherty a documentary life, 1883-1922 by Robert J Christopher ( )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North (1922) was the first full-length anthropological documentary in cinematic history. Drawing from the unpublished diaries of the director and his wife, Frances, Robert Christopher's biography deepens our understanding of a film legend and his groundbreaking work. Previous biographical work has neglected the critical contributions Frances made to his development as an artist. Robert and Frances Flaherty charts her transformation from a Bryn Mawr bluestocking to the partner of a frontier explorer and offers her unique perspective as his collaborator and publicist."--BOOK JACKET
