A large format volume of 256 pages. Fred Zinnemann has written a unique eyewitness account, recalling 50 years of film-making and more than 20 major films. Here, in the director's own voice, is the story of the making of such films as High Noon, From Here to Eternity, Oklahoma!, A Man for All Seasons, The Day of the Jackal, Julia and The Nun's Story. Zinnemann tells it all with generosity and a wry sense of humour; he is aided by more than 400 superb photographs which, in a novel way, form a visual narrative of his life and work. He cast Deborah Kerr 'against type' with Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity which caused a stir, however the film received 8 Oscars.
