About this product
- DescriptionIn a hundred years of filmmaking dozens of potentially great films of master directors and artists were either never completed or t released. Many of these films are lost forever, but their little-kwn histories illustrate what fiction writers have kwn all along: People's failures often make stories more compelling than their successes.<br><br>The reasons these might-have-beens never came to fruition are almost as varied as the plots themselves: Love spurned (<em>L'Ecole des Femmes</em>, 1941, Max Olphuls), unmanageable stars (<em>I Loved a Soldier</em>, 1936, Henry Hathaway), government suppression (<em>Bezhin Meadow</em>, 1935, Sergei Eisenstein) and fear of reprisal (<em>Metall</em>, 1931-33, Hans Richter) are but a few.<br><br>A detailed discussion of each attempt is accompanied by cast and production credits (when available) and excerpts from scripts and other sources. Rare stills are interspersed throughout.
