|Series Title:||Filmmakers series, no. 124.|
|Responsibility:||Oswald Morris ; with Geoffrey Bull.|
"Morris photographed many of the top stars, and relates a fund of intimate anecdotes about them. He describes his early years in films during the era of the "quota-quickies," advancing from clapper boy through camera assistant to operator and then to director of photography. He has many stories to tell about the legendary producer David O. Selznick who battered him with his infamous memos throughout the making of Stazione Termini, Beat the Devil, and A Farewell to Arms. Additionally, Morris describes technical revelations about making films in the predigital era, including groundbreaking innovations and camera tricks."
"Morris also writes about his early life and describes his Royal Air Force exploits in World War II, during which he won the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Force Cross. His personal accounts of death-defying sorties in bombers over enemy territory make thrilling reading."--Jacket.
