9780151119325: Between flops: A biography of Preston Sturges

Writer-director Preston Sturges set a new standard for creativity in Hollywood. Three volumes of his screenplays have been published, and he is acknowledged as one of the grand masters of screen comedy. Between Flops was the first full-length biography of this great American humorist."One of the most entertaining and engrossing film biographies I've encountered, doing justice not only to that truly eccentric genius at the core, but also to his time and place in both Hollywood and our culture." Judith Crist"A sobering picture of the sweat and disappointment that lie beneath the Hollywood hoopla." Newsweek
