About This Item

xiv+237 pages with plates, bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's red cloth with silver lettering to spine and cover in original pictorial jacket. First edition. Stuart Kaminsky has written the first book on Houston to deal with his entire opus and the first to relate Houston's life to his work. Houston is portrayed as a fascinating combination of fraud, genius and tall-story teller. Kaminsky has relied upon interviews with many people who have worked with him, including Don Siegel, William Wyler, Eli Wallach and many writers and producers in the film industry. The result is a portrait of an authentic American genius of film. Condition: Damage to heal covers and spine, some underlining. Jacket chipped at spine ends else a good copy in a very good jacket.
