About this title


To movie audiences, the work of Andrew Marton (born in Hungary in 1904) is memorable: the famous chariot race in Ben-Hur and the meticulously accurate Normandy invasion in The Longest Day are two of his important achievements. But because his credits were very often "Second Unit Director" or "Co-Director," Marton is often not immediately associated with his work. For the first time this oral history reveals just what were Andrew Marton's contributions to the cinema. This extensive interview, filled with great detail on how he did his movie magic, covers Marton's 55-year career. Technically clever, he always retained his humanity, humor, and humaneness.

About the Author:

Joanne D'Antonio attributes her foundation in filmmaking to information gathered conducting these interviews with Andrew Marton when she moved to Hollywood in 1976. She has worked as a sound editor on many films, including The Empire Strikes Back and Apocalypse Now, and is currently a film and videotape editor working in feature films and television.
