[solid copy, light external wear, faint diagonal crease in upper corner of rear cover (Praeger Film Library) Series Trade PB (B&W photographs) "In half-a-century making films, Allan Dwan worked with D.W. Griffith, directed Douglas Fairbanks, Gloria Swanson and Shirley Temple, discovered Ida Lupino, and made action pictures like SUEZ and SANDS OF IWO JIMA." An extended interview (which originated as an American Film Institute oral history) with the veteran film director takes up most of the book, and provides ample proof that Bogdanovich was just as good an interviewer as he was a critic and essayist. Includes an extensive filmography -- and if anybody ever had an extensive filmography, it was Allan Dwan, who started directing movies in 1911 and barely stopped to take a breath until he retired in the early 1960s. [Bogdanovich's name is misspelled "Bogdanovitch" on the book's spine.]
