Synopsis:

A star director explains every phase of fundamental film technique - from Production and Direction
to Distribution.

Manuscript culled from 480 hours of Jerry Lewis lectures at the University of Southern California.

Includes chapters on every aspect of filmmaking, from setting up a deal with a studio to distribution
and invaluable advice on working with [and selecting] actors, cast and crew.

Though originally written in 1971, the book still resonates with wisdom and verve in Lewis's inimitable style and honesty. 

New collectors edition updated to include all the original text of the previously published editions. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

About the Author
JERRY LEWIS has acted or directed or written or produced-and sometimes all of them at once-in more than forty films. Twice he has been voted the Best Foreign Director of the Year by the French film critics.


His innovations, such as the remarkable set pictured on the back of this book, have been landmarks in the film industry. He was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1926 and has been involved in the entertainment industry for more than a quarter of a century-on the stage, in nightclubs, on television and in motion pictures. 

Mr. Lewis passed on in August 2017 but his memory lives on.

Review:

"An invaluable guide on filmmaking that still resonates today" - Booklist
