Frankfurt, Germany: Zweitausendeins, 1981. Small folio. First Edition. Red cloth, blue satin ribbon marker bound in, with a vertical paper band at the front board showing an illustration of Nicholas Ray and Wim Wenders. Boldly SIGNED by Wim Wenders with a flourish on the title page. A companion book to Wenders' 1980 film, "Lightning Over Water," a documentary in which Wenders joins his friend and hero, director Nicholas Ray, in New York City to discuss Ray's dying wish to make a film about a painter-- also dying-- who sails to China to find a cure for his disease. This uncommon book is every bit as loving a tribute to Ray as Wenders' film, photo illustrated throughout with pale color stills from the film, and the complete text in both German and English. Introduction by Bernardo Bertolucci. Near Fine with no dust jacket as issued.
