Summary
"John Schlesinger's career in cinema, stage, opera, and television spanned half a century. It was, however, his films that made him famous, including such classics as Midnight Cowboy, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Marathon Man, Billy Liar, Darling, and Day of the Locust, to The Falcon and the Snowman, Madame Sousatzka, Pacific Heights, Cold Comfort Farm, Separate Tables, and An Englishman Abroad." "In Edge of Midnight, author and historian William J. Mann chronicles Schlesinger's life and career, from his early documentary days at the BBC, to his emergence as one of the four Angry Young Men of British film in the 1960s (along with Lindsay Anderson, Karel Reisz, and Tony Richardson) who sought to bring working class issues to the screen, to his Academy Award for the X-rated Midnight Cowboy and his glittering nights as a Hollywood host, to his death on July 24, 2003, brought on by a massive stroke two years earlier." "In writing this authorized biography, Mann received the full cooperation of Schlesinger himself, as well as that of his family and his companion of 36 years, Michael Childers. In addition, he was granted complete access to tapes, diaries, production notes, and correspondence, as well as interviews with many of the actors, crew members, friends, and colleagues who shared their thoughts and memories."--Jacket
