on 1 October 2011
Alexandra Danilova captioned as Alicia Markova, Roddy McDowell "unidentified actor" in "Look after Lulu", the mis-captioning carried over from Charles Spencers "Cecil Beaton Stage and Film Designs" of Estelle Winwood and Cornelia Otis Skinner in the 1946 "Lady Windermere's Fan"; these are just some of the errors in this book. Plus many oft repeated stories such as the opening night Turandot debacle with a chorus member in the incorrect coloured costume.
Shame on all involved in this publication that fact checking seems have been so lax. Images are nice and the inclusion of some letters etc is new but this is hardly a ground breaking Beaton book and the link with New York is often tenuous, to say the least. Two stars for a nicely laid out book of Beaton images.
