[a little curling to the front cover, otherwise nice and clean with just minimal handling wear]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) The interviewees: actors Pat Boone, Jeff Corey, Beverly Garland, Kathryn Grayson, Jane Greer, Janet Leigh, Joan Leslie, Sheree North, Janis Paige, Luise Rainer, Paula Raymond, John Saxon, Jane Withers, and Jane Wyatt; producers/directors Samuel Goldwyn Jr., Stanley Kramer, Vincent Sherman, Robert Wise, and Fred Zinnemann. The interviews, conducted by the author (a Belgian schoolteacher), aren't presented in Q&A-transcript form, but rather as often-lengthy quotes dropped into brief career essays on each individual; each entry is padded out a bit with notes and a filmography. Includes a 2003 letter from the author to director-interviewee Vincent Sherman, from whose estate this book was acquired, laid in.
