Dylan Thomas – The Collected Filmscripts


In stock

SKU: 198 Categories: , ,


A fine hardback edition of Dylan Thomas’ Collected Filmscripts, edited by John Ackerman. Dylan Thomas loved going to the cinema from a young age. He wrote an essay entitled ‘The Films’ for Swansea Grammar School Magazine as a teenager, and near the end of his life appeared at a symposium in New York on ‘Poetry and the Film’.

Most of his film work was undertaken during the war for Strand Films; colleagues included Graham Greene, Philip Lindsay and Julian Maclaren-Ross. He was employed full time, writing many scripts for propaganda documentary films, others (such as Rebecca’s Daughters, filmed by Karl Francis in the 1990s) were historical and political dramas.

John Ackerman comprehensively introduces the book as a whole, and each film individually.
