Talking about Ken Russell
Author: Paul Sutton (Wolfson 2000)
Publisher: Buffalo Books
Over a period of ten years, Paul Sutton interviewed Ken Russell and hundreds of people who worked with him. This landmark book includes, for example, the first-hand testimonies of more than a dozen people who worked on Women in Love, and twenty-three members of the cast and crew of The Devils. Actors, editors, designers, continuity women, producers, assistants, special effects artists, composers, sound recordists, and the camera crews, all recall their working days with Ken Russell. In addition to these interviews, Paul Sutton adds choice finds from his research into Russell’s careers in photography, film and opera, and uncovers a treasure trove of previously unknown material. This book aims to shine new light on the popular masterpieces and bring to the fore lesser-known works that should be better-known. This new edition contains an additional 40,000 words. Lavishly illustrated.
