De Toth on De Toth by Andre De Toth

Book Description

This book provides a fascinating survey of the career of one of Hollywood's great mavericks. In his memoir "Fragments", Andre de Toth took his readers on a roller coaster ride through his life. He gave scant mention to his film work. In "De Toth on De Toth", he redresses the balance and expounds - in his own exhuberant style - on his film-making career. The cast of characters includes his wife - the luminous Veronica Lake - as well as stars such as Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, David Niven, Vincent Price, Dick Powell, and a whole host of others in the Hollywood firmament. De Toth speaks of his work on "Lawrence of Arabia" and on "Superman", as well as revealing how a one-eyed director could make the 3-D masterpiece, "House of Wax".
