Madcap: The Life of Preston Sturges Reviews

    One of my favorite directors lived a life crazier than his movies. From being shipped back and forth across the atlantic with his mom, to her dating Alister Crowley for a time, to his rise from lipstick salesman, to famed playwright, to failed playwright, to the world's first writer/director of film.

    This is a terrific biog of a one-of-a-kind film maker. An extraordinary life (his mother was best friends with Isadora Duncan & had an affair with Aleister Crowley!) he taught himself to write plays, then screenplays, & then became the first Hollywood author to direct his own scripts. Highly recommended.

    A wonderfully funny and sad biography of one of Hollywood's greatest directors.
