schema:reviewBody""Marilyn Moss's Giant examines the life of one of the most influential directors to work in Hollywood from the 1930s to the 1960s. George Stevens directed such popular and significant films as Giant, A Place in the Sun, and The Diary of Anne Frank. He was the first to pair Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy on film in Woman of the Year. Through the study of Stevens's life and his production history, Moss also presents a glimpse of the workings of the classic Hollywood studio system in its glory days." "Moss documents Stevens's role as a powerful director who often had to battle the heads of major studies to get his films made his way. For four decades, from the 1930s to the 1960s, Stevens was a major Hollywood player and icon. His career is traced from his earliest days at the Hal Roach Studios - where he learned to be a cameraman, writer, and director for Laurel and Hardy features - up to his later career when his films made millions at the box office and actors clamored to work in his movies. Over the years, Stevens's films were graced with stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean, Alan Ladd, and Montgomery Clift."--BOOK JACKET."
