Ken Russell: The Adaptor as Creator

London: Frederick Muller Limited, 1976. First Edition. INSCRIBED by director Ken Russell on the half-title page: "To David Leck / Ken Russell."

Director of "Billion Dollar Brain" (1967), "Tommy" (1975), and "The Russia House" (1990), as well as a handful of erotic films, Russell has been dubbed as one of "Britain's most controversial film directors," evident in his insisting on visually assaulting his audience. This title challenges negative criticism of the director and his work, and investigates his methods of adaptation. Jacket portrait by Paul Dufficey.

Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket. Spine ends slightly bumped, else about Fine. Jacket spine ends and corners show light shelfwear, with a short closed tear at the top of the front panel.
