A friend gave me a copy of this book and suggested I read it. I had not heard of Michael Reeves before. It is one of the saddest, most moving books I have ever read. The waste of this fragile, brilliant young man is an incredibly moving story, beautifully told.

Format: Paperback
Taking a quote from one of the principal actors, Ian Ogilvy, in the cinematic classic, Witchfinder General, "We've got a job to do and we'll go on until we've done it", the author of this book, John B. Murray, has done just that. This is the story of the brief, remarkable, but tragic life of British Director Michael Reeves, Horror's James Dean. Like Dean, Reeves was to spearhead the new crop of the modern director as Dean would do similarly on the acting side. Both left behind a small but impressive resume of work, but unfortunately, unlike Dean, Reeves left behind no apparent protoges, although some film scholars would argue the point. Both died tragically at a young age, but both accomplished in their brief existence, much more than what any one person would or could hope to accomplish in an otherwise extended lifetime, assuring both a cult status. This book serves as an unauthorized biography of sorts, but were Mr. Reeves alive today, I am sure it would receive his stamp of approval. Through obvious exhaustive research, involving as many of the main players in Michael's life as possible, especially his boyhood friend and lead actor in all 3 of his movies, Ian Ogilvy, Murray has constructed a literary masterpiece. From the opening page to the close, you will be hard pressed to put down this book. Rather than imbue his own personal feelings on the subject matter, Murray, the author instead relies upon the interviews and factual information at his disposal to paint an extroardinary canvas of the Director's life and accomplishments, distancing hisself from a critical but rather instead a casual and informative approach. In closing, Mr. Murray has achieved what many others have strived for but failed in their attempts to achieve.Read more ›
