Yul Brynner, the mysterious and exotic Hollywood star, was one of four generations in his family to bear that name. His Swiss-born grandfather, Jules, arrived in Shanghai almost by accident about 1865, but within twenty years had become a leading industrialist in the Far East. His business association with Tsar Nicholas II built Vladivostok and the Trans-Siberian Railway, then triggered the Russo-Japanese War, contributing to the fall of the Romanoffs. Jules' son Boris regained control of the family's mines, but his experiences in China, Manchuria, and North Korea rivaled the ordeals of Dr. Zhivago. Yul's childhood took him to China and then to France, where, as a teenager, he performed in nightclubs with Russian Gypsies while becoming a trapeze acrobat in the circus. He moved to America before he spoke English and within five years was starring on Broadway. His son, with a colorful life of his own, has written the family's history.--From publisher description

Alex North : el viajero impenitente by Frederic Torres( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Se realiza un análisis de la obra del compositor norteamericano que, a mitad del pasado siglo XX, abrió las puertas de la modernidad a la música cinematográfica con la introducción del jazz en la estructura dramática de las partituras con su trabajo para Un tranvía llamado deseo. Su aproximación introspectiva a la psicología de los personajes le convirtió en el mejor ilustrador de las adaptaciones cinematográficas de autores como Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Carson McCullers, Malcom Lowry, Flannery O’Connor, Howard Fast, Victor Hugo, William Faulkner o James Joyce. Pero también supo aportar esa misma complejidad emocional a las grandes películas épicas en las que trabajó, revolucionando asimismo el género histórico con partituras de la talla de Espartaco, Cleopatra, El tormento y el éxtasis y The passover plot, así como creando otras para todo tipo de géneros entre los que destacó el western, con Más allá de Río Grande, El gran combate y Muerde la bala; el bélico, con La brigada del diablo; e, incluso, el fantástico, con El dragón del lago de fuego. Un recalcitrante viajero del espacio y el tiempo, de sólida formación musical, que jamás temió enfrentarse a temática alguna. A los 25 años de su muerte, Frederic Torres reivindica la modernidad de su obra con un pormenorizado análisis en el que se aborda toda su filmografía, así como también sus obras extracinematográficas, escénicas y televisivas.
