by Geduld, Harry M. and Ronald Gottesman (Editors)
Bloomington and London: Indiana University Press, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This fascinating study presents for the first time the full story of Eisenstein's disastrous attempt to make a great film in Mexico - a motion picture 'symphony' of Mexican life, history, culture, and the perpetual Mexican fiesta with death. Based in major part on the Eisenstein-Sinclair correspondence, it takes the form of a documentary account of the period November 1930 to June 1932, during which the most famous cause celebre in the history of the film industry unfolded." Inscribed by editor Ronald Gottesman on the front flyleaf. Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with gilt titles. Internally crisp and clean. Light bit of edgewear to the boards and dust jacket; else near fine.
