Burton, Tim - Planet of the Apes: Re-Imagined
(Newmarket Press US 2001 HC/DJ 120:-)

With over 200 photographs, drawings, storyboards, and the complete screenplay, a magnificent visual book on Twentieth Century Fox's Planet of the Apes, as reimagined by visionary director Tim Burton (Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Batman). The original 1968 Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston spawned a worldwide cult of devoted fans, along with four movie sequels, two TV series, and over $100 million in merchandise sales. This Planet of the Apes tells an all-new story (with echoes of the original), brought up to date by today's most acclaimed creator of cinematic worlds and a state-of-the-art production team. This book reveals the brilliant filmcraft—from preliminary production designs and character sketches to fully realized scenic art and blueprints, and the final sets and action as photographed. The complete screenplay is included, as well as details of the production from casting to post, glimpses behind the creation of the thrilling action and special effects, and insights into Tim Burton's envisioning of this classic story. Over 200 color illustrations. First Edition.
Sten Berglind 125:-

Efter succén med boken Raggare kommer nu författaren Sten Berglind med en bred skildring av filmhistoriens mest försummade huvudrollsinnehavare - bilarna. Hur skulle till exempel Ingrid Bergman och Humphrey Bogart ha kommit ut till den dimmiga flygplatsen i "Casablanca", om det inte var för filmens vackra gamla Buick...Och vad hade väl Steve McQueen varit utan sin fantastiska Ford Mustang i "Bullitt"?

I sin nya bok berättar Sten Berglind om fyrtio filmer där bilarna har en avgörande roll i handlingen. Han berättar inte bara om bilarna utan också om dem som körde och en mängd halsbrytande historier kring själva inspelningen. Urvalet är högst personligt och blandningen blir följaktligen överraskande, spännande och kul.
Fine, Marshall - Harvey Keitel
(Fromm US 1998 HC/DJ 100:-)

Harvey Keitel is one of the most sought-after actors in the world. He has remained loyal to the world of independent and groundbreaking films, repeatedly surprising us with risky performances such as those in Bad Lieutenant, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Piano and Smoke. Keitel's willingness to challenge himself and support small films has inspired a generation of young actors and directors, helping to reinvigorate independent film and giving us a gritty, refreshing screen icon - a throwback to greats such as Lee Marvin and Robert Mitchum." "Keitel's rollercoaster life is also unique, a story unlike any other in filmdom's annals. A kid on the street in Jewish Brooklyn, a stint in the Marines, a brief career as a court stenographer, an encounter with Scorsese and De Niro, firing from the lead in Apocalypse Now, self-imposed Hollywood exile in the eighties, a return to prominence in the great films of this decade, Keitel throughout has exemplified a painful and unflinching search for honesty. First Edition.

Holden, Anthony - Olivier
(Weidenfeld & Nicolson UK 1988 HC/DJ 100:-)

Revealing the man behind the myth, this perceptive, witty, and penetrating portrait investigates Laurence Olivier—not merely the greatest actor of the 20th century, but perhaps of all time. Its chapters touch on his achievements as a director of both plays and films, his central role in the founding of the National Theater, and the off-stage dramas of his private life. First Edition.
Lax, Eric - Woody Allen
(Charterhouse US 1975 HC/DJ 80:-)

Although a bit early for a biographal piece, this book does provide some great insight into the thought processes of one of the greatest comedians of all time. It is seperated into stages, first going into Woody doing stand-up at Vegas, then taking a look at his (rather interesting) early life, then his film debut in "What's New Pussycat?" and further on into some of his other films, most notably "Sleeper." It then highlights some experiences from his plays and discusses a few of his essays published in "The New Yorker." Obviously it's not chronological throughout, not that it needs to be.
