Mainly about Lindsay Anderson by Gavin Lambert( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."
