8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fuller talks about directing his first picture (he also wrote the script), I Shot Jesse James ... and how, as a result, he was sought after by every major studio, choosing to work for Darryl Zanuck of Twentieth Century Fox. We see him becoming one of the most prolific, independent-minded writer-directors, turning out seven pictures in six years, among them Pickup on South Street, House of Bamboo, and China Gate. He writes about making Underworld U.S.A., a movie that shows how gangsters in the 1960s were no longer seen as thugs but as "respected" tax-paying executives ... about the making of the movie Shock Corridor - about a journalist trying to solve a murder in a lunatic asylum - which exposed the conditions in mental institutions ... and about White Dog (written in collaboration with Curtis Hanson), a film so controversial that Paramount's then studio heads, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Michael Eisner, refused to release it."--Jacket
Samuel Fuller : interviews by Samuel Fuller( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early twentieth century, the art world was captivated by the imaginative, totally original paintings of Henri Rousseau, who, seemingly without formal art training, produced works that astonished not only the public but great artists such as Pablo Picasso. Samuel Fuller (1912-1997) is known as the ""Rousseau of the cinema, "" a mostly ""B"" genre Hollywood moviemaker deeply admired by ""A"" filmmakers as diverse as Jim Jarmusch, Martin Scorsese, Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, and John Cassavetes, all of them dazzled by Fuller's wildly idiosyncratic primitivist style. A high-school dr
Falkenau, the impossible : Samuel Fuller bears witness by Emil Weiss( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mai 1945, la célèbre " Big Red One "--Première division d'infanterie de l'armée américaine - livre son dernier combat en Europe dans les Sudètes en Tchécoslovaquie et libère le camp de concentration de Falkenau. Samuel Fuller, alors sous les drapeaux, filme cet épisode. C'est un document unique (16mm, noir et blanc, muet), resté jusqu'à ce jour inédit, qui est repris dans " Falkenau, vision de l'impossible ". Après une courte introduction présentant les conditions de tournage et l'épisode de la libération de ce camp, Samuel Fuller commente les images qu'il a enregistrées quarante ans plus tôt. Pour avoir prétendu ignorer ce qui se passait dans le camp, les notables du bourg de Falkenau vont devoir faire acte d'humanité. C'est le seul film où l'on voit des civils dans un camp faisant ce qu'ils font. C'est la première fois et la dernière fois que cela se produit pendant la guerre. Ce grand cinéaste aujourd'hui disparu s'interroge également sur l'honnêteté des images, sur la possibilité de représenter l'univers concentrationnaire et sur la nécessité d'en transmettre la mémoire aux jeunes générations."
