"So you Wanna be a Director"

This article first appeared in
..in 70mm
The 70mm Newsletter

Written by: Thomas Hauerslev Issue 66 - November 2001

Ken Annakin's new autobiography "So You Wanna Be A Director" is a wonderfully entertaining reading experience. The book is full of drama and enough fantastic locations to make an interesting film about the life of a successful movie director. I'd like to recommend the book to everyone interested in films, actors and in Mr. Annakin's career in particular. I read the book during the summer and I quite often found it impossible to put it down, because the stories were told in a very straightforward manner which nailed me to the pages.

Last year I had the pleasure to interview Mr. Annakin in Bradford and have eagerly awaited the publication of his book.

I haven't seen many of his films, in fact only three of them for sure; "Those Magnificent Men", "Battle of the Bulge" and "The Longest Day". I will surely try to look for some of the remaining titles now that I have read his autobiography.

Paperback - 316 pages (May 21, 2001). Tomahawk; ISBN: 0953192652.
