Book News Annotation:

Walker and Johnson (Salisbury U., Maryland) have compiled this anthology of interviews of some of the leading film directors of the last century, culled from issues of the journal Literature/Film Quarterly. Presented in chronological order, these interviews feature such noted directors as Billy Wilder, Frank Capra, Federico Fellini, William Friedkin, John Schlesinger, Robert Wise, Robert Linklater and Martha Coolidge. These interviews are also arranged in a way that provides artistic connections between these individuals, for the benefit of film students.

Synopsis:

Founded in 1973, the journal Literature/Film Quarterly has featured interviews with some of the most prominent and influential filmmakers from around the world. In Conversations with Directors, the journal's coeditors have assembled an exciting collection of interviews spanning 35 years. Interviewees include directors like Robert Wise, Billy Wilder, Frank Capra, Federico Fellini, William Friedkin, and Robert Altman. Organized chronologically, each interview is preceded by a short introduction that establishes a contemporary context, along with providing the reader with a clear sense of the interview's primary concerns, usefully illuminating the many fascinating, and sometimes surprising, points of connection and difference between the directors.
