Frank Tashlin.
Johnston, Claire, Ed.; Willemen, Paul, Ed.
This auteuristic analysis of Hollywood filmmaker Frank Tashlin (1913-1972) includes critical commentary, interviews, and a biographical chronology. Six separate articles discuss various facets of Tashlin's films, ranging from the artistic processes involved to critical evaluations of the films. In two interviews, Tashlin elaborates on his motivations in creating some of the notable scenes in his many comic films and on his world view as an artist. An essay on Jerry Lewis is included since the comic actor frequently starred in Tashlin films. An extensive chronology of Tashlin's life with brief cast and crew credits for each Tashlin film is appended. (CH)
