About this title


One of cinema's acclaimed director's, Frank Capra changed the face of cinema with such classics as "It Happened One Night", "Lost Horizon", "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" and "It's a Wonderful Life". This book covers all of Capra's work from the early silents through to his last film in 1961, "A Pocketful of Miracles". This book reveals the psychological pressures which caused the Sicilian-born Capra to collapse creatively at the end of the 1940s under the onslaught of the McCarthy witch hunt.

From the Inside Flap:

The story of a life tragically at odds with the idealism of Capra's Americana
