Joseph Losey

(1994)
A non fiction book by

 
 
In 1963 Joseph Losey achieved international acclaim with his film "The Servant", which also marked the beginning of his collaboration with Harold Pinter. Their film "Accident" was followed by "The Go-Between", which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Losey's career began with experimental theatre in New York before he moved to Hollywood and the blacklist forced him into exile. Drawing on FBI files and private documents, this book sets out to show why Losey finally compromised by signing non-communist affidavits. In addition to appraising his 31 feature films, the author provides a portrait of a driven talent, honoured in Europe but ignored by Hollywood, whose creative generosity, alcohol addiction and egotism produced equally fierce reactions.
