On Cukor by Gavin Lambert( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Cukor: the figure is framed in a Hollywood landscape. He was perhaps the most celebrated American director of his time. The man who gave most of his life to making movies (about fifty of them) also managed to live in a very personal, independent, and, for the most part, satisfied way. The life and the work were partners, and surprisingly happy ones. From this candid, intelligent series of interviews emerges his personal biography.--Adapted from dust jacket
