[light rubbing to covers, some horizontal stress lines along spine, short diagonal crease at bottom right corner of front cover]. (B&W photographs) A special issue devoted almost entirely to producer Martin Ransohoff, then riding high with three major films released during 1965: THE SANDPIPER (directed by Vincente Minnelli; written by Dalton Trumbo and Michael Wilson); THE LOVED ONE (directed by Tony Richardson; written by Terry Southern and Christopher Isherwood); and THE CINCINNATI KID (directed by Norman Jewison, after Sam Peckinpah had been fired; written by Terry Southern about half-a-dozen other guys, ultimately credited to Southern and Ring Lardner Jr.). Minnelli, Jewison, Trumbo, Southern and Ransohoff himself are all interviewed, as is actor Jonathan Winters, talking about his work in THE LOVED ONE; also part of the package is an appreciation of actor Edward G. Robinson (co-star of THE CINCINNATI KID) by Harlan Ellison, and photo spreads on each of the three films. The remainder of the issue is filled out with: a report on that year's Cannes Film Festival, featuring brief comments from participants as diverse as Luis Bunuel, William Wyler and Mai Zetterling; various short news clips about international cinema, including an interesting half-page piece entitled "Satyajit Ray on Himself"; reviews of THE TRAIN (John Frankenheimer), VON RYAN'S EXPRESS (Mark Robson), MASQUERADE (Basil Deardon), THE IPCRESS FILE (Sidney J. Furie) and IN HARM'S WAY (Otto Preminger). (The first three reviews are by Harlan Ellison.)
