864 of Bogdanovich interviews with classic Hollywood directors. Been reading this off and on for months, and today the Queens Public Library reclaimed it from me, half finished. I got through Fritz Lang, George Cukor, Howard Hawks, Leo McCarey, Allan Dwan and most of Alfred Hitchcock. Great stories and lots of practical, no-frills insight once you’re past the me! me! me! Bogdanovich introductions. I’ll have to put this back on the queue immediately to read the rest.
