(price-clipped) [a bit of wear to book at spine ends, light dust-soiling to top edge; jacket is bright and almost like new, the price-clipping being the only significant flaw]. (B&W photographs) Comprehensive analysis (sometimes including production history) of all fifteen of the Hollywood films based on Ernest Hemingway's books or stories. Includes individual chapters devoted to THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, A FAREWELL TO ARMS, TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT, THE KILLERS and FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, as well a chapter devoted specifically to the ways in which his books were censored for the screen, a discussion of "The Hemingway Hero and the Hollywood Star," and a final chapter discussing "the way Hemingway himself was played in those pictures that were promoted as movie versions of his life."
