This review is from: The Innocents (BFI Film Classics) (Paperback)
Another excellent book from Christopher Frayling. This takes us through the genesis of both Henry James' book and the film. The author had access to director Jack Clayton's papers so covers in depth the development of the script (by Truman Capote), sets, photography, technical innovations, music and costumes as well as Clayton's approach to filming. Although not a success on original release, the film has now been rightly identified as a classic. One bonus is the quality of Frayling's writing, something not commonly associated with books about film. (I should confess an interest as I provided some statistical information, but that does not detract from my observation that this is a welcome addition to the BFI Film Classic bookshelf).
