Description:

1st Printing. 100 pages. Published in 1983. Full-length critical assessment of the film director's work. One of the best books on the art of Ingmar Bergman. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Wliiam G. Jones' "Talking With Ingmar Bergman". One of the fullest critical appraisals on Ingmar Bergman. Many have made the trip to Sweden, but few have returned with as much to share about Ingmar Bergman's working methods, beginnings, development, breakthroughs, triumphs, self-admitted failures, and his view of what his place is in world cinema. Although Bergman had already made most (if not all) of his greatest films by the time of the book's publication, especially "Persona" and the chamber trilogy "Through A Glass Darkly", "Winter Light", and "The Silence", as well as ground-breaking theater work, it is still amazing how much information and insight could be gleaned from him about his work by an intelligent and perceptive scholar/critic. Ingmar Bergman died on July 30, 2007 at the age of 89, an irreplaceable loss to world culture. Given the abysmal state and irreversible decline of contemporary cinema, there are no words to describe the loss of its single greatest figure. "The greatest film artist since the invention of the motion picture camera" (Woody Allen). An absolute "must-have" title for Ingmar Bergman collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the best books on possibly the greatest film director of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER INGMAR BERGMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 087074187X. Bookseller Inventory # 4034
