Charis: Laughton in ‘Captain Kidd'. incisive portraits and wise words on friends and colleagues like Welles, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe and David O. Selznick. A readable collecton of anecdotes and a tender tribute to his
devoted wife, actress Patricia Medina. (A.H.)
O Fellini -A Lite Hollis Alpert (W. H. Allen £12.95). ‘With Fellini it is all but impossible to separate the work and the personality, and there was no way to avoid the intertwining of the two. His films, he has said, are like love affairs. Much of this book, then, is the story of those affairs.‘ A good biography of Federico Fellini is not only overdue, but somehow seemed almost inevitable. such is the director’s ability to entrance those who become involved with his work and his life, a constantly recurring motif in this book. The biography of an artist is not always so illuminating in relation to his work; Alpert brings out the close contiguity between the two, achieving a nice blend of telling anecdote (and aren‘t we all suckers for the higher gossip?) and pungent critical analysis. Unlikely to be superseded in the near future. (Kenny Mathieson)
