  • William Cameron Menzies

    Very readable biography of this director/designer with a Scottish background.
    The book is entitled "William Cameron Menzies"

    I've always liked his Things to come from 1937, he was one of those director's who could evoke the lavish style of a Hollywood production while working in England. Which given the restrains of the studio system and budgets highlighted his talent. What's the name of the book.

      The Maze (1953), is one of my favourite horror films, and I still have an old vhs recording from Channel 4. I would love to see it in 3D some day.
