King Vidor on Film Making


This book is the story of a man, his films and the development of the motion picture as we know it today. The great early directors literally invented the language of cinema. Vidor offers a fascinating blend of the human history of film, the personalities in front of and behind the cameras and an insight into the way a director sees, thinks and makes a total film.
