Collected interviews with the Academy Award?winning director of the critically and commercially successful films The French Connection and The Exorcist
About the author
Chris Lane has worked in professional horticulture all his life both as a nurseryman, currently production director for Coblands Nurseries Ltd., and also as a lecturer at Hadlow College, Kent, England, where he first became interested in witch hazels. He started collecting them seriously after the cold winter of 1979–1980. Chris is a long-serving member of The International Plant Propagators' Society, becoming international president in 1995. He serves on the Woody Plant Trials Committee for the Royal Horticultural Society and on the committee for The Horticultural Development Council representing the Hardy Nursery Stock Industry.
This book is a must-read for fans of The Exorcist, but also Friedkin's other films, especially Sorcerer, Cruising, and The French Connection, which come up again and again. William Friedkin: Interviews is a fascinating look into the way this brilliant filmmaker thinks.
