I had hoped this might be an affordable biography of Frank Capra, my favorite director. It is not that. It is a well written critique of his films from about 1930 - 1941, covering most of his best pictures, with the exceptions if Arsenic and Old Lace and It's a Wonderful Life. The author knows his subject pretty well (though some of the details of It Happened One Night are a little off), and his enjoyment of the material comes across. It is an enjoyable 45 page essay about Capra's most successful period.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
