London: Ian Cameron. Very Good. 1965. (No. 12). Magazine. [moderate external wear, slight dog-earing to corners, a small amount of ink underlining in first article]. (B&W photographs) About half this issue is devoted to director Richard Brooks, whose film LORD JIM was then in release, including a longish interview in which he discusses his career film-by-film. The additional Brooks-related pieces are: "Conservative Idealist" by Paul Mayersberg; "Two Christian Films" (about THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV and ELMER GANTRY) by Raymond Durgnat; Brooks' own "Foreword to Lord Jim"; and a filmography. Other articles include: "The Universal Hitchcock" (a discussion of THE BIRDS and MARNIE); a discussion of the film KING AND COUNTRY in the context of director Joseph Losey's work; an account of the 1964 Tours Festival of short films; an interview with Michelangelo Antonioni, conducted by Jean-Luc Godard; and reviews of MAN'S FAVORITE SPORT? (Howard Hawks), CHEYENNE AUTUMN (John Ford), SUNDAY IN NEW YORK (Peter Tewkesbury) and THE SILENCE (Ingmar Bergman). Among the columnists contributing to the "Small Talk" section is Peter Bogdanovich, who reports from Hollywood on the doings of Robert Aldrich, Sam Fuller, Frank Tashlin, Jerry Lewis, Blake Edwards, Sam Peckinpah, Howard Hawks, and even Josef von Sternberg (then on the verge of publishing his autobiography). A particularly rich issue of this important and influential periodical. . (Inventory #: 23417)
