About the Author:

Ruth Dwyer (Ph.D., film studies/drama, University of Toronto) has taught film studies at McMaster University in Hamilton ON, but is now a full-time writer and filmmaker, writing and producing educational videos for children about art and architecture.

Review:

Dwyer...has done a fine job of researching this first study of St. Clair, interviewing his colleagues and studying his surviving film. (American Cinematographer)

The book is invaluable to researchers not only for a well-documented account of a "secondary" Hollywood figure...but also for insights into the people with whom he worked and the studio goings-on therein. (The Silent Film Monthly)

There are half-a-dozen books on Lubitsch, and doubtless there'll be more. But Mal, bless his heart, was our own native Lubitsch and deserved his own book. Luckily, now he has one―and it's definitive. (From the Foreword by William K. Everson)
