Elia Kazan was the mid-twentieth century’s most sought-after director of both stage and screen. He directed virtually back-to-back the greatest American dramas of the era—by Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams—and revolutionized theatre and film with dynamic action, poetic staging, and rigorous naturalism. This remarkable book, drawn from his notebooks, letters, interviews, and autobiography, shows Kazan at work on each major play and movie—analyzing each piece in terms of his own experience; figuring out staging, costuming, casting; and working with writers on scripts and with actors on interpretations.
