Abstract:

"Oscar-winning cinematographer Oswald ("Ossie") Morris looks back over his fifty-eight-film career as director of photography for such top-rank directors as John Huston, Carol Reed, Stanley Kubrick, Ronald Neame, Vittorio De Sica, Franco Zeffirelli, and Sidney Lumet. Morris provides many personal and amusing insights into the making of such films as Moulin Rouge, Moby Dick, The Man Who Would Be King, Lolita, The Guns of Navarone, The Hill, and Oliver!".

"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."--BOOK JACKET.
