ReFocus: The Films of Preston Sturges Hardback

Edited by Jeff Jaeckle, Sarah Kozloff


How can it be that more people aren't talking about, studying and revering Preston Sturges, the first person to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, who wrote and directed some of the most bizarre, controversial and hilarious comedies of the 1940s?

An influence on filmmakers ranging from Orson Welles to the Coen brothers, Preston Sturges may be the most talented Hollywood filmmaker who has yet to receive the critical recognition he deserves.

The Films of Preston Sturges, first book in the ReFocus series, provides this recognition with essays by world-famous scholars that chart Sturges' contributions to Hollywood cinema, pivotal status as an early writer-director, inimitable style and ongoing influence.
