Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Though his name is not as readily recognized as that of contemporaries Howard Hawks, John Ford, and Frank Capra, Curtiz nevertheless was Warner Brothers's top director during Hollywood's golden years of the 1930s and 1940s. This volume is essentially a detailed filmography of his remarkable career. From his fledgling days in Hungary in 1912 to his last big-budget studio production in 1961, Curtiz directed nearly every genre with true finesse. With Casablanca alone Curtiz secured a hallowed place in film history, but the coupling of that extraordinary title with The Adventures of Robin Hood , Angels with Dirty Faces , Yankee Doodle Dandy , Mildred Pierce , and numerous others put him at the forefront of the cinema's elite; it is hard to imagine American film without him. Though Robertson is overly forgiving of his subject's failures and could have given the text greater substance by adding more biographical material, his book admirably achieves its primary goal. This long-overdue paean to one of the movies' most creative personalities is recommended for large film collections.
