Overview

Jack Cardiff shot some of the most visually breathtaking films in screen history. He was behind the camera when Hitchcock directed his tour de force Rope; when Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger created The Red Shoes, and when John Huston made The African Queen. Now this world-famous cinematographer emerges from behind the lens to talk about his art and the people he worked with during his stellar career. In a question-and-answer format, enhanced with 90 photographs of his best work, Cardiff offers a wealth of anecdotes about his 70 years in film. He discusses personalities such as Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart, and provides insights into his craft--about lighting, and using color— in an entertaining, nontechnical manner.
