Introduction by Earl Anderson. Hardback with DJ. This series of books dealing with films and stars of the Golden period of Hollywood are absolutely indispensible for movie buffs. Anyone old enough to remember the old (now defunct) film magazine, ''Films in Review'', will recall the magazine's monthly career article on stars which covered their films in detail. The article was followed by a filmography and many photos. The Debonairs is in similar vein. It covers the careers of actors who appeared in sophisticated roles and played debonair and witty characters (amongst other varied roles) - stars like George Brent, Melvyn Douglas, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, Ray Milland, Robert Montgomery, David Niven and William Powell. The great thing about this book is that all of the stars' films are covered in detail along with details about their personal lives (each chapter is like a mini book). At the end is a detailed filmography and a section on photos.

The Shooting Party (VHS).

By Alan Bridges, [Director].

Thorn EMI HBO Video, 1998. Video: VHS One VHS Tape in Very Good+ condition (showing no discernible wear and plays fine, but was once a part of a rental or library collection), housed in a heavy, hard white plastic clamshell type case with the usual colorful promotional insert in lightly used condition, showing a bit of mild rubbing to the edges (about Very Good+). Overall Very Good+. Actors: James Mason, Edward Fox, Dorothy Tutin, John Gielgud, Gordon Jackson. Screenplay by: Isabel Colegate and Julian Bond. Producers: Geoffrey Reeve, Jeremy Saunders, Peter Dolman. Format: Color, HiFi Sound, Original recording reissued, NTSC. Run Time: 98 minutes. Video: VHS. The Shooting Party shows the decline of the British aristocracy (and why they became irrelevent) through the story device of a weekend of country shooting and the relationships among the manor head (James Mason), those he has invited, those who are retainers on his estate, and those protesting the shoot. Mason is absolutely superb. He was a subtle actor who made some awful role choices in his career. This was one of his great roles. In the Shooting Party, he embodies the sadness of the loss of values he treasures as well as an understanding of why these values are being lost. Set in the autumn of 1913, just before the outbreak of World War I, this stunning film captures the last days of a way of life--the English country life of large estates, shooting parties, and aristocratic leisure--all of which will be swept away with the war and the subsequent industrialization of the country. Director Alan Bridges emphasizes this theme symbolically in the opening scenes of this 1985 film, as a litter is borne across a field against a backdrop of brilliant autumn foliage. A lively cast of characters has been invited to Sir Randolph Nettleby's 1000-acre park for a weekend shoot, and as the characters converse, interact, and dally romantically, the reader learns the details of their "civilized" lives, their attitudes and prejudices, and their understanding of their code of behavior. James Mason stars in his final film role as Sir Randolph, a man who loves his aristocratic obligations as host, but who also enjoys associating with some of the locals who live around his estate. Tom Harker, wonderfully played by Gordon Jackson, is a beater and also a poacher, with whom Sir Randolph has a tacit understanding and friendly relationship. Sir John Gielgud playing an activist who opposes blood-sports has only a small role, but his confrontation with Sir Randolph (Mason), following his attempt to interrupt the shoot, becomes one of the most memorable scenes on film--two greats at the peak of their powers. Personal rivalries develop among several of the guests, who adhere to the "correct" etiquette of their class even as they deal with injuries to their pride--a nicety of behavior that will soon vanish with war. When the shoot begins and the orgy of bloodshed occurs, the symbolic parallels between the world as it has been, as it will be during the war, and as it will change are unmistakable. Edwardian interiors, manicured grounds, and costuming set the period, and the clever use of light and darkness emphasizes the themes. Melancholy music echoes throughout, and camera shots emphasize the waning days of this way of life. Julian Bond's screenplay from the book by Isabel Colegate, accurately captures her straightforward tone and style, and the closing scene, in which another litter is carried across the field, is a clear message that an age and way of life are at an end.
