Books by Frank Thompson : Robert Wise: a Bio-Bibliography
The first book-length study of the career of the director of such classic films as The Day the Earth Stood Still, West Side Story, and The Sound of Music, this volume combines thorough cast and crew credits, critical responses, awards and nominations, production notes, and comments from the director himself resulting in a unique overview of a remarkable career. In addition, a complete annotated bibliography of all books, articles, and interviews by or about Wise is included. An interesting feature is the examination of many of his unproduced projects.
"....written with considerable style. This is far more than a bio-bibliography, and is equally an excellent general overview of a director whose films have been curiously unpredictable in terms both of quality and critical response." Classic Images
