“By means of his carefully planned, intelligent interview technique, Dixon has focused upon both ‘sung’ and ‘unsung’ heroes. . . . Unlike other interviewers, he has not only sought out neglected characters but has asked them pertinent questions relating to their contributions to cinema. This collection of essays is an important complement to Dixon’s other work.”Tony Williams, coeditor (with Rocco Fumento) of Jack London's The Sea Wolf : A Screenplay
Collected Interviews: Voices from Twentieth-Century Cinemaby Wheeler Winston Dixon (Editor), Gerard Malanga (Contribution by), Alex Nicol (Contribution by), Brian Clemens (Contribution by), Bryan Forbes (Contribution by)
Dixon (film studies, U. of Nebraska and editor-in-chief of the Quarterly Review of Film and Video) presents fifteen interviews he conducted with writers, directors, animators, actors, and producers from a range of cinematic genres. Although most of the interviews have appeared before (in Film Criticism and other journals) they appear unexpurgated for the first time here. Among the interviewees are actor Vincent Price, "Ren and Stimpy" creator John Kricfalusi, B-movie director Roger Corman, and digital animator Sally Cruikshank.
