Phillips interviews actors who worked with Lean and directors who knew him, and their comments reveal new details about the director's life and career. Phillips also explores Lean's lesser-studied films, such as The Passionate Friends (2949), Hobson's Choice (1954), and Summertime (1955). The result is an in-depth examination of the director in cultural, historic, and cinematic contexts."--BOOK JACKET.
