Immoral memories : an autobiography by Sergei Eisenstein( Book )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948), creator of such masterpieces as Battleship Potemkin, Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible, was perhaps the greatest of all film directors. He wrote his autobiography in 1946, two years before his death, and it is a work of major importance in the light it sheds on his personality and mercurial genius. Vivid, eccentric and free-ranging, Immoral Memories is written in a style reminiscent of the brilliant visual effects of montage and dynamic progression that characterize its author's film-making technique. He recounts his life in Russia from the time of the Revolution, during which he served in the Bolshevik army as a volunteer, his travels in the West and his encounters with a remarkable medley of individuals during his long career. He gives us unique insights, too, into his triumphs and tribulations. His disappointments and despair were exemplified by the banning of the film Ivan the Terrible, Part II, which was not released until fifteen years after his death. And he never expected his autobiography to be published in Russia. Yet in answer to his query "Has there been life" he replied that there had been "life lived acutely, joyously, tormentedly, at times even sparkling, unquestionably colourful, and such a life that, I suppose, I would not exchange for another""--Publisher's description
Ira Aldridge : the Negro tragedian by Herbert Marshall( Book )

8 editions published between 1958 and 1993 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On March 25, 1833, celebrated English actor Edmund Kean collapsed on stage at Covent Garden while playing the role of Othello and died shortly thereafter. Sixteen days later, young Ira Aldridge, an American-born black actor, replaced Edmund Kean in the role of the Moor. "Suddenly, members of the press were up in arms," and a real-life drama escalated, with all of London the stage."--BOOK JACKET. "The late biographers Herbert Marshall and Mildred Stock recreate this drama, which included a huge cast of characters: An adoring following among the common folk in the English provinces. The manager of Covent Garden, one Pierre Francois Laporte, a Frenchman who mixed business with liberal ideas about race. Theatre critics who relished calling Aldridge a "black servant" even as they idealized Shakespeare's peasant background. The proslavery lobby, at that very moment fighting its last battle."--BOOK JACKET. "Aldridge had come to London from New York City at age seventeen and for eight years had performed in the English provinces. In April 1833, he stood at the very heart of the Empire, beloved Covent Garden. Thrust out after only two performances, he was catapulted, in a wonderfully ironic twist, onto a world stage that included all of Europe and Russia. He would eventually return to conquer London, decked with medals of distinction."--BOOK JACKET
