Who the hell's in it : portraits and conversations / Peter Bogdanovich
London: Faber and Faber Limited, 2004.
Call No: 802.27 BOG Author: Bogdanovich, Peter Edition: 2005 Place: London Publisher: Faber and Faber Limited PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 528 pages ; illustrated ; 20 cm Subject: ACTING; BOGDANOVICH, PETER; GISH, LILLIAN; BOGART, HUMPHREY; BRANDO, MARLON; ADLER, STELLA; CLIFT, MONTGOMERY; GRANT, CARY; LEMMON, JACK; LEWIS, JERRY; MARTIN, DEAN; MINEO, SAL; Stewart, James; WAYNE, JOHN; FONDA, HENRY; KARLOFF, BORIS; CASSAVETES, JOHN; CHAPLIN, CHARLES; CAGNEY, JAMES; DIETRICH, MARLENE; Perkins, Anthony; SINATRA, FRANK; GAZARRA, BEN; HEPBURN, AUDREY; POITIER, SIDNEY; PHOENIX, RIVER; MONROE, MARILYN Summary: From Peter Bogdanovich - director, screenwriter, actor, and cinema scholar - 26 fascinating portraits of Hollywood's most acclaimed movie actors and actresses: stars whom he has known, admired, and occasionally worked with.
Within these pages is Bogdanovich on Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, James Cagney, John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Marlene Dietrich, Jack Lemmon, Boris Karloff, Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe, James Stewart, Frank Sinatra, and many more. With an acute and affectionate eye, Bogdanovich shows us Lillian Gish, the first virginal hearth goddess of the silver screen; Marlon Brando, refusing to play the same from one picture to the next, yet ever recognisable as the great actor, in spite of himself; Jerry Lewis, whose goofy comedy represented the nine-year-old in all of us; and Cary Grant, the epitome of screen elegance, benignly aware that in life even he could never live up to his own legend. Bogdanovich captures brilliantly - in their own words and his - the personality, the work, the style and the enduring iconic appeal of America's movie greats. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780571224319 Donation: James Sabine More info
