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

"Lambert's book begins with his and Anderson's days as movie-struck schoolboys, becoming fast friends, growing up in the shadow of World War II. He shows us their postwar creation of and collaboration on the influential magazine Sequence - a magazine that was produced on love and a shoestring, and which shook up the British film world with its admiration for both Hollywood noir and MGM musicals (at the time unfashionable genres) and its celebration of such directors as Ford, Bunuel, Cocteau, Vigo, and Sturges." "He describes how both men rebelled in opposite directions - Anderson remaining in England, Lambert leaving in 1958 for Los Angeles - and traces their unorthodox paths through the film industry."--Jacket

The Ivan Moffat file : life among the beautiful and damned in London, Paris, New York, and Hollywood by Ivan Moffat( Book )

"In 1943 Moffat enlisted in the army and was assigned to George Stevens's unit, started by Eisenhower, which covered the last stage of World War II, from D-day to the fall of Berlin and the liberation of the concentration camps. After the war, Stevens invited Moffat to become an associate producer for his new Hollywood company. Moffat's unofficial credits on the screenplays for A Place in the Sun and Shane and his co-writing credit on Giant led to a successful screenwriting career, and at the same time he became a leading social figure in Hollywood. Moffat had affairs with many women - from a waitress to a duchess, from a stripper to a movie star. The most serious affair of his life was probably with the novelist Caroline Blackwood."
