The Men Who Made the Movies
By

Rating
Mr. Schickel takes on eight of Hollywood's finest directors in conversation--Hitchcock, Capra, Minnelli, Cukor, Hawks, Wellman, Vidor, and Walsh--reminiscing about their working lives which spanned the most intriguing decades of American filmmaking. Each of these directors created a canon of work that even today sustains critical analysis without sacrificing popular appeal. Immensely readable and richly informative...it provides a real education in just how movies are made....One of the best introductions to the cinema that one could ask for. --Library Journal
