(no dust jacket, as issued) [nice clean tight copy, with just a trace of scraping to the gilt spine lettering & border, small bookstore stamp on ffep]. (Twayne's Theatrical Arts Series) Series (B&W photographs) Critical survey of the work of the German-born stage and film director whose 50s melodramas (produced by Ross Hunter and others at Universal) raised the form to delirious heights. Among his classics are MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION, ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS, WRITTEN ON THE WIND and IMITATION OF LIFE. Following the format of this excellent series, the book includes a chronology of Sirk's life and career, a selected bibliography and a detailed filmography. Because most of the books in this series went to libraries, it's a bit hard to find clean, unmarked copies.
