by John Baxter

Arriving in Hollywood in 1915, King Vidor went on to one of the longest and most successful directorial careers in the American cinema. His distinctly personal style of filmmaking produced such major works as The Big Parade, The Crowd, Northwest Passage, Duel in the Sun, The Fountainhead, and Ruby Gentry, and provided successful vehicles for many stars from Lillian Gish, Marion Davies, and John Gilbert to Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck, and Jennifer Jones. In the first book ever written on this important director, John Baxter has succeeded in chronicling the enormity of Vidor's achievement and by basing much of his analysis on his own interviews with King Vidor, offers the richest assessment of the man and his films yet published.
