22 Grant, Richard E. WITH NAILS : THE FILM DIARIES OF RICHARD E. GRANT
Overlook TP 1999 0879519355 / 9780879519353 Paperback Fine 
Film fans alert to the immense charm of the under-known British film Withna il & I will certainly enjoy the droll autobiography of the actor who played Withnail. The film--" bittersweet, sweet and sour, like King Curtis' defin itive sax version of `A Whiter Shade of Pale,'" says its writer-director--t ells the story of poverty-stricken drama school refugees in mid-1960s Engla nd. Of the film's script, Grant says "never before or since have I read som ething that conveys what goes on in my head so accurately." The image of th e brusque, hilariously overbearing Withnail fits Grant, who has also appear ed in Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Age of Innocence, and the Robert Altman fi lms The Player and Pret-a-Porter. He writes of his passage through the worl d of the aspiring film stardom wonderfully well, producing a book far super ior to the usual movie life story. "Oh up and down and forklifts, this is a dull madness," he says of the process of landing a role, but his book witt ily presenting the madness is never dull.

Simon & Schuster 1991 0671735373 / 9780671735371 Paperback Very Good+

25 Howlett, John JAMES DEAN: A BIOGRAPHY
Plexus Publishing 1994 085965012X / 9780859650120 Paperback Near Fine 
A highly collectible 5th impression, tight clean copy, no markings througho ut; Five decades after the death of James Dean, he is still revered as a distan t myth and remains an enigma to a generation that hardly knows him. Yet it is this generation that has made him the most idolized actor of all time. W hile his film career lasted only sixteen months, it produced three cinemati c greats: East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant. John Howlett conducted extensive research and interviews with actors and di rectors who knew Dean, to produce a revealing portrait of a complex and tra gic man - the perfect embodiment of an eternal struggle who was an inspirat ion to several generations of rebels without a cause. His anguish was exqui sitely genuine on and off the screen, and his moments of joy are rare and p recious. Here is James Dean from all sides: his talent for interpreting and expressing his role as an actor, his rebellious nature, his personal frank ness, his ever-probing curiosity, his tenacious struggle for success, and h is sadness and sensitivity. Includes color photos. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
