RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 56420307 LA English T1 One man's documentary : a memoir of the early years of the National Film Board A1 McInnes, Graham,, Walz, Eugene P., PB University of Manitoba Press PP Winnipeg YR 2004 SN 0887556795 9780887556791 AB "Graham McInnes was one of many talented young people recruited by the charismatic John Grierson to build the National Film Board of Canada during the heady days of WWII. McInnes's memoir of these "days of high excitement" is an insider's look at the NFB from 1939 to 1945, an "origin" story of Canada's emerging world-class film studio that provides the NFB with the kind of full-bodied vitality usually associated with the great Hollywood studios in their golden years." "An art critic and CBC radio commentator when he joined the NFB in 1939 as a scriptwriter, McInnes worked on many film classics with filmmakers such as Tom Daly, Norman McLaren, Gudrun Parker, and Budge Crawley. McInnes portrays these legends as well as many other players in that dynamic world, such as Lorne Green, Morley Callaghan, and Mavis Gallant, in this recreation of the early day-to-day frenzy."--Jacket.
