John Hughes FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Man Behind the Movies
Looking for a comprehensive chronicle of the films of legendary director, screenwriter, and producer John Hughes? You re holding it in your hands. Covering the entirety of Hughes s career, from his earliest features through to his mainstream box-office successes, John Hughes FAQ explores the key factors that contributed to his legendary status in the world of cinema. While Hughes has become especially well known for the eight films that he directed between 1984 and 1991 including Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), and Ferris Bueller s Day Off (1986) he made a considerably greater contribution to cinema through the dozens of high-profile screenplays that he developed for production throughout the 80s and 90s. John Hughes FAQ investigates many different aspects of Hughes s prolific career in film discussing his distinctive flair for creating entertaining and engaging characters, his enthusiasm for new technology and eventful road trips, and his insightful social commentary on class and culture. Considering the entire sweep of Hughes s work behind the camera, John Hughes FAQ focuses not only on the popular classics of his filmography but also on many of his movies that have achieved a certain cultural prominence over the passing years.

In Search of Theater: Travels in England, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and the United States
This book was written between 1946 and 1952, and first published in 1953. It is now widely regarded as the standard portrait of the European and American theater in the turbulent and seminal years following World War II; but it is far more than that. It ranges back as far as Ibsen and even Shakespeare, and has contributed very substantially to a number of reputations that would long outlast 1950, such as those of Bertolt Brecht, Charles Chaplin and Martha Graham. For Bentley fans, it is an essential link in a chain that runs from The Playwright as Thinker to The Life of the Drama to The Brecht Memoir and Thinking About the Playwright.

EAn Actor SucceedsE is a very special collection containing all the best trade secrets of the biggest and most successful film and theater professionals. Presented in an informative format An Actor Succeeds is a useful yet entertaining how-to tips-and-advice book comprising nearly 900 quotes mostly from actors but also directors writers casting directors and more. The book is conveniently divided into five chapters: Acting Auditioning Connecting Working and Coping. Here's a sampling of quotes from each section:TH+/-Acting+/-TH Of course we all learn that acting is basically reacting. The least acting you ever have to do is in a close-up. The close-up may require an actor's reaction but a small subtle one. Generally speaking the less you 'act' in a close-up the better. a Sir John GielgudTH+/-Connecting+/-TH Acting especially in motion pictures is very hierarchical like a caste system. The stars are royalty the other actors are serfs-okay commoners... If you're not a big shot you gotta be careful not to push or intrude. You gotta watch what you say how you say it and especially when you say it. a Bruce DernTH+/-Working+/-TH Acting in front of a camera or a live audience requires intense concentration to shut out the real world and create the character's reality. Focus is just as important for an actor as for a cinematographer. a Keira KnightleyTH+/-Coping+/-TH Partly I got into show business to become rich and famous and thus show up anyone who'd treated me badly growing up. But doesn't one evolve with maturity? My focus ultimately changed from negative to positive as I found that I enjoyed the work even the struggle for its own sake. a Michael Landon

(Applause Books). Charming, witty, effortlessly debonair, and elegant, Cary Grant was the ultimate leading man, a silver screen icon who seemed to embody all that a movie star should be. But beneath the glamour was a real and complicated man surprisingly vulnerable, unabashedly romantic, often exacting perfectionist who rose above a traumatic childhood and failed marriages to become an incomparable Hollywood legend. In this sublimely truthful and candid portrait, biographer Nancy Nelson draws on interviews with Grant, as well as material from his personal papers, along with loving, revelatory reminiscences from some of his closest friends and loved ones including Katharine Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Quincy Jones, James Stewart, and many more to reveal the vaudevillian, actor, lover, and father. With a treasury of both well-loved and rarely seen photographs and a foreword by Grant's wife, Barbara, and daughter, Jennifer, this is the definitive biography of one of the screen's greatest stars.

The Room: The Definitive Guide
Oh Hai! The Room: The Definitive Guide is the ultimate key to the biggest pop culture phenomenon of the 21st century, Tommy Wiseau's The Room. Arguably the worst film of all time and certainly one of the most beguiling, the masterpiece of so-bad-it's-good filmmaking has grown since its release in 2003 to become one of the most popular theatrical releases of all time, with an extremely loyal and vocal fan base. Within the book, readers will find everything required to step into The Room for the first time and understand the traditions, characters, and (lack of) logic at play within the ultimate cult film. Favorite customers of the film will also find a dozen red roses as the book takes a look back at the history of the phenomenon, features extensive and in-depth analysis of the film, includes extensive interviews with the cast and crew, and, of course, studies the film's enigmatic and visionary auteur, Tommy Wiseau. This is the first available book guide to The Room. And an added bonus is the graphic design from cult film artist Mute, which will give the book an eye-catching and distinctive look. So get your tuxedo on, grab your football, have your spoons at the ready, and prepare to shout, You're tearing me apart, Lisa! for the first or thousandth time, as we enter The Room.

Now, James Bond FAQ is a book that takes on the iconic cinema franchise that's lasted for so many years. Sometimes serious as SPECTRE, sometimes quirkier than Q, but always informative, this FAQ takes the reader behind-the-scenes, as well as in front of the silver screen. Everyone's included: Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig; little-known facts about TV's first shot at 007, the same Bond story that was made into two different films; whatever happened to those wonderful cars and gizmos that thrilled everyone; plus much more. It's a book for the casual, as well as hardcore, James Bond fan. James Bond FAQ is filled with biographies, synopses, production stories, and images and illustrations seldom seen in print, leaving little else to be said about the world's favorite secret agent. This book includes a foreword by Eunice Gayson.
