Description
Perhaps best known for "Rebel without a Cause," American filmmaker Nicholas Ray directed dozens of movies in the film noir genre, including "In a Lonely Place, Johnny Guitar, "and" They Live by Night." Born in Galesville, Wisconsin, in 1911, Ray was an iconoclastic figure in film--an alcoholic, depressive, and compulsive gambler--who found himself increasingly blacklisted in Hollywood in the 1960s only to be heralded as the spiritual father to American cinema's New Wave and one of America's greatest rebel auteurs. From Martin Scorsese to Jean-Luc Godard and Jim Jarmusch, Ray's influence can be seen throughout the work of some of the twentieth century's greatest directors. In this authoritative biography, Bernard Eisenschitz leaves no stone unturned.
