About This Item

London: Bloomsbury, 1992. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A large format volume of 256 pages. Fred Zinnemann has written a unique eyewitness account, recalling 50 years of film-making and more than 20 major films. Here, in the director's own voice, is the story of the making of such films as High Noon, From Here to Eternity, Oklahoma!, A Man for All Seasons, The Day of the Jackal, Julia and The Nun's Story. Zinnemann tells it all with generosity and a wry sense of humour; he is aided by more than 400 superb photographs which, in a novel way, form a visual narrative of his life and work. He cast Deborah Kerr 'against type' with Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity which caused a stir, however the film received 8 Oscars. He was responsible for the screen debuts of Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift and Meryl Streep. Other actors and actresses he has worked with read like a Who's Who of the movie business and include Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper, Orson Welles, Grace Kelly, Deborah Kerr, Audrey Hepburn, Vanessa Redgrave, Frank Sinatra and Sean Connery. PLEASE NOTE: A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.24 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 22. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
