A read copy but no markings throughout, unblemished spine, NOT an ex-librar y edition: From the cinema verité of the sixties to softer fare like Splash, New York has provided some of the most iconic moments on film. Beginning with a survey of such classics as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Scenes from the City captures how the changing face of New York, as well as the founding of the MOFTB, have contributed to a particular school of film characterized most emphatically in the street-style work of directors as diverse as Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee. With over 200 stills and contributions from noted New York film personalities such as Sidney Lumet and Nora Ephron, the book also includes rare, unpublished, behind-the-scenes shots and stories from the quintessential New York filmmaker himself--Woody Allen. With a special section on the landmark TV series, commercials and music videos filmed in New York, Scenes from the City is an affectionate and vivacious ovation for this captivating "character" that rarely receives billing but always steals the show.

Michael: At the last curtain call made the gesture of "being quiet" with my finger to my mouth. That was my signal to the house and to those around us --an to myself--that there would be no more words from Kramer. Julia: Elaine was someone who single women laughed at because she wrestled with her worst secrets and biggest fears. Let's face it, she embodied lots of problems. In fact she was a jerk. Anyone who chooses Elaine as a role mo del should be in therapy. Jason: When people reflected on their own lives in comparison to George's, they felt pretty good. They could tune in and see it was far worse for this poor slob. In a sick way that was comforting. Jerry: After nine years, how do you say good-bye to the experience, the people, the accomplishments? Emotionally, I just hoped not to get crushed, yet all the while I knew I would.

HELLRAISERS: THE LIFE AND INEBRIATED TIMES OF RICHARD BURTON, RICHARD HARRI S, PETER O'TOOLE & OLIVER REED, Sellers, Robert
65 Sellers, Robert HELLRAISERS: THE LIFE AND INEBRIATED TIMES OF RICHARD BURTON, RICHARD HARRI S, PETER O'TOOLE & OLIVER REED
Preface Publishing 2009 1848090188 / 9781848090187 Paperback Very Good 
The highly entertaining biography of four charismatic and much-loved actors follows them through five decades of boozing, brawling and braggadocio. "God put me on this earth to raise sheer hell." Richard Burton "I was a sinner. I slugged some people. I hurt many people. And it's true, I never looked back to see the casualties." Richard Harris "Booze is the most outrageous of all drugs, which is why I chose it." Peter O'Toole "I don't have a drink problem. But if that was the case and doctors told me I had to stop, I'd like to think I would be brave enough to drink myself i nto the grave." Oliver Reed This is the story of four of the greatest thespian boozers who ever walked - or staggered - off a film set into a pub. It's a story of drunken binges of near biblical proportions, parties and orgies, broken marriages, drugs, riots and wanton sexual conquests. And yet these piss-artists were seemingly immune from the law. They got away with it because of their extraordinary acting talent and because the public loved them. They were truly the last of a breed, the last of the movie hellraisers.

68 Shelley, Jim TAPEHEAD VERSUS TELEVISION
Atlantic Books 2001 1903809258 / 9781903809259 Paperback Good 
Jim Shelley loves television. His devotion is not to the programmes that ar e watched by late night audiences, but to the blockbusters beloved by milli ons. Usually he is indulgent towards the object of his affections and forgi ving when it is slipshod and self-regarding. Yet, like any other lover, the re are times when the relationship becomes dull and predictable, and when h is irritation boils over into anger. In this work, the very best of Jim She lley's television criticism is combined, for the first time, with the react ions of his devoted readers, whose emails and letters provide an often scat hing running commentary on what he has written. Taken together, they provid e a scabrous and darkly amusing commentary on the nation's viewing habits.

JACK NICHOLSON: AN UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, Shepherd, Donald

Robson Books Ltd 1991 086051756X / 9780860517566 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
This unauthorized biography examines the life of superstar, sex symbol and hellraiser Jack Nicholson - the leading role in such movies as "The Shining ", "Terms of Endearment", "The Witches of Eastwick" and "Batman". Behind th e "shadowy" image is an even more intriguing private life. Jack Nicholson d iscovered Hollywood at the age of 18, working as an office boy at MGM Studi os, and three years later starred in his first film, "The Cry Baby Killer". Stardom did not come easy, however, and by the age of 32 he was becoming d isillusioned and considered giving up acting for writing and directing - on ly to drift to stardom accidently with "Easy Rider". Then, at the age of 37 , he discovered that the woman he had thought of as his elder sister was in fact his mother and he had been born illegitimately - a revelation that ha d a marked effect on his life and career. This is the story of a seemingly happy-go-lucky actor who often thrashes about in existential gloom, a man w ho has a strong affinity with women, but finds the perfect relationship har d to come by. It is also the story of the making of his films, of his storm y relationships and of his strange encounters with the likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando.

Fromm Intl 1998 0880642327 / 9780880642323 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
According to Sova, a frequent contributor to Cosmopolitan and Redbook, the first film to feature a woman was John Rice-May Irwin Kiss in 1896, three y ears after Thomas Edison introduced his Kinetoscopes as a peep-show novelty . By 1908, French-born Alice Guy Blaches became the first woman to write, d irect, produce and star in a movie. Sova notes female pioneers among the ra nks of screenwriters (Anita Loos, Sonya Levien, Elinor Glyn), producers (Ma ry Pickford), film editors (Margaret Booth) and directors (Lois Weber, Doro thy Arzner, Ida Lupino), but her real focus is the legacy of actresses in f ront of the camera.

[Read by Jeff Riggenbach] The story of the man who changed people's relatio nships with their showers forever, thanks to Psycho, this is the classic, E dgar Award-winning biography of the enigmatic and intensely private Alfred Hitchcock. One of America's greatest film directors, his suspenseful subjec t matter ranged from the dark drama of a man possibly trying to kill his wi fe, to the humorous problem of disposing of a body, to the ecological under pinnings of an attack by fowl fiends in a sleepy harbor town. Acclaimed bio grapher Donald Spoto explores the roots of Hitchcock's obsessions -- with f ood, murder, and idealized love, among others -- and traces the origins of his incomparable, bizarre genius, from his childhood and education to the g olden years of his career. Based on interviews with his writers, actors, an d longtime associates, and on exhaustive research, The Dark Side of Genius is the definitive biography of Alfred Hitchcock.

78 Taylor, Chris HOW STAR WARS CONQUERED THE UNIVERSE: THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF A MU LTIBILLION DOLLAR FRANCHISE
Basic Books 2014 0465089984 / 9780465089987 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In 1973, a young filmmaker named George Lucas scribbled some notes for a fa r-fetched space-fantasy epic. Some forty years and 37 billion later, Star W ars?related products outnumber human beings, a growing stormtrooper army sp ans the globe, and "Jediism" has become a religion in its own right. Lucas' s creation has grown into far more than a cinematic classic; it is, quite s imply, one of the most lucrative, influential, and interactive franchises o f all time. Yet incredibly, until now the complete history of Star Wars-its influences and impact, the controversies it has spawned, its financial gro wth and long-term prospects-has never been told. In How Star Wars Conquered the Universe, veteran journalist Chris Taylor tr aces the series from the difficult birth of the original film through its s equels, the franchise's death and rebirth, the prequels, and the preparatio ns for a new trilogy. Providing portraits of the friends, writers, artists, producers, and marketers who labored behind the scenes to turn Lucas's ide a into a legend, Taylor also jousts with modern-day Jedi, tinkers with droi d builders, and gets inside Boba Fett's helmet, all to find out how Star Wa rs has attracted and inspired so many fans for so long. Since the first film's release in 1977, Taylor shows, Star Wars has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics in far-flung countries and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and at

WHY ACTING MATTERS, Thomson, David
80 Thomson, David WHY ACTING MATTERS
Yale University Press 2015 0300195788 / 9780300195781 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A provocative, highly engaging essay on the art of pretending on the stage, on screen, and in daily life Does acting matter? David Thomson, one of our most respected and insightful writers on movies and theater, answers this question with intelligence and wit. In this fresh and thought-provoking essay, Thomson tackles this most elusive of subjects, examining the allure of the performing arts for both t he artist and the audience member while addressing the paradoxes inherent i n acting itself. He reflects on the casting process, on stage versus film a cting, and on the cult of celebrity. The art and considerable craft of such gifted artists as Meryl Streep, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Marlon Bra ndo, Daniel Day-Lewis, and others are scrupulously appraised here, as are n otions of "good" and "bad" acting. Thomson's exploration is at once a meditation on and a celebration of a unique and much beloved, often misunderstood, and occasionally derided art form. He argues that acting not only "matters" but is essential and inescapable, as well as dangerous, chronic, transformative, and exhilarating, be it on the theatrical stage, on the movie screen, or as part of our everyday lives.
