A master sailor when he was barely in his twenties, Sterling Hayden (1916-1986) became an overnight film star despite having no training in acting. After starring in two major films, he quit Hollywood and trained as a commando in Europe. Hayden joined the OSS and fought in the Balkans and Mediterranean, earning a Silver Star for his distinguished service. Hayden's wartime admiration for the Yugoslavian Partisans led to a brief membership in the Communist Party after the war, and this would come back to haunt him when he was called to testify in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee where he became the first star to name names. After returning to Hollywood, Hayden's film career flourished as he starred in several films including The Asphalt Jungle, Denver and Rio Grande, and The Killing. His personal life, however, descended into chaos. His bitter custody battle with his second wife led to his well-publicized and controversial kidnapping of their four children for a voyage to Tahiti. Increasing alcohol and substance abuse would take its toll, but Hayden's career would be revived as a character actor in such classics as Dr. Strangelove and The Godfather. In addition, he proved to be an excellent author, penning two international bestsellers. Despite these achievements, his later years were characterized by depression, self-doubt, alcoholism, and substance abuse. His life was metaphorically a series of wars, including the most difficult of them all--the war that Sterling Hayden fought with himself.

Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy had an immense impact upon popular culture. Included in this book are quotations from nearly six hundred literary works—novels, short stories, plays, poems and some nonfiction books—by nearly three hundred authors over the last eighty years, illustrating a diverse and contextually rich multitude of references to both the actors themselves and to a majority of their films. An overwhelming number of allusions have been found to such unforgettable classics as It Happened One Night, Boys Town, Gone with the Wind, Beau Geste, The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, High Noon and Inherit the Wind. The authors whose works are quoted here include a large number of highly acclaimed American writers: F. Scott Fitzgerald, John O’Hara, Budd Schulberg, Herman Wouk, J. D. Salinger, James Jones, James A. Michener, Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski, Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike, Philip Roth, William Styron, Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, Tim O’Brien and Paul Auster—and a host of foreign writers, such as Julio Cortázar, Umberto Eco, Romain Gary, Herman Koch, Stieg Larsson, Alan Sillitoe and Markus Zusak. “This is a brilliant book . . . to see the impact that my father, along with the other three seminal stars of Hollywood's golden age, had outside the film world is both enlightening and astounding. I think my father would find it an honor to be included. . . . A must have for anyone who loves movies and loves literature.” — Stephen Humphrey Bogart About the Author: Henryk Hoffmann was born and educated (M.A. in English Philology) in Poznań, Poland, where he worked as an English teacher, translator and interpreter. Having immigrated to the USA in 1992, he kept teaching (Latin, German, English and History) and started writing reference books related to film and literature, such as “A” Western Filmmakers: A Biographical Dictionary of Writers, Directors, Cinematographers, Composers, Actors and Actresses—his first publication. Hoffmann is an active member of the Western Writers of America and lives, with his wife Betsy, in Lititz, PA. This book, a result of many years of painstaking research, is unlikely to hit a bookstore near you since the publishing house is rather small, but it's still a must-have reference book for any fan of American cinema and culture. Written by Henryk Hoffmann, it brings together hundreds of literary references fiction writers have made in their work to four American stars: Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy (and puts each reference in context). What emerges is a nearly 1000-page panoramic view of world and American literature and its close ties to the mythology of the movies. The book is now available also on Kindle for $9.95. -- Michał Oleszczyk

In Film Crazy, McGilligan shares some of his fascinating interviews with screen luminaries from his salad days as a young journalist working the Hollywood beat. He rides the presidential campaign bus with Ronald Reagan, visits Alfred Hitchcock on the set of the Master of Suspense's last film, "Family Plot," meets George Stevens at the Brown Derby and conducts the last interview with the director of "Shane" and "Giant." Other interview subjects captured for posterity include rough-and-ready pioneer directors William Wellman and Raoul Walsh; likeable actor Joel McCrea; actress - and the only female director of her era - Ida Lupino; French legend Rene Clair; and lowly-contract-writer-turned-studio-mogul Dore Schary. Film Crazy is a must for film students, scholars and professionals.

This biographical dictionary shines the spotlight on several hundred unheralded stunt performers who created some of the cinema's greatest action scenes without credit or recognition. The time period covered encompasses the silent comedy days of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd, the early westerns of Tom Mix and John Wayne, the swashbucklers of Douglas Fairbanks, Errol Flynn, and Burt Lancaster, the costume epics of Charlton Heston and Kirk Douglas, and the action films of Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, and Charles Bronson. Without stuntmen and women working behind the scenes the films of these action superstars would not have been as successful. Now fantastic athletes and leading stunt creators such as Yakima Canutt, Richard Talmadge, Harvey Parry, Allen Pomeroy, Dave Sharpe, Jock Mahoney, Chuck Roberson, Polly Burson, Bob Morgan, Loren Janes, Dean Smith, Hal Needham, Martha Crawford, Ronnie Rondell, Terry Leonard, and Bob Minor are given their proper due. Each entry covers the performer's athletic background, military service, actors doubled, noteworthy stunts, and a rundown of his or her best known screen credits.

From live productions of the 1950s like Requiem for a Heavyweight to big budget mini-series like Band of Brothers, long-form television programs have been helmed by some of the most creative and accomplished names in directing. Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors brings attention to the directors of these productions, citing every director of stand alone long-form television programs: made for TV movies, movie-length pilots, mini-series, and feature-length anthology programs, as well as drama, comedy, and musical specials of more than 60 minutes. Each of the nearly 2,000 entries provides a brief career sketch of the director, his or her notable works, awards, and a filmography. Many entries also provide brief discussions of key shows, movies, and other productions. Appendixes include Emmy Awards, DGA Awards, and other accolades, as well as a list of anthology programs. A much-needed reference that celebrates these often-neglected artists, Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the history of the medium.
