Meet the Author

Director, scriptwriter, and author Nelly Kaplan was an intimate collaborator of Gance from 1954 to 1964. She thus gained access to rare documents in many cases unpublished to this day, some of which appear for the first time in this book. Bernard McGuirk is Professor of Romance Literature and Literary Theory at the University of Nottingham. He has published widely on the literatures and cultures of France, Spain, Portugal, and Latin America.
