Beschreibung

In Coward on Film: The Cinema of No l Coward, author Barry Day documents every film based on Coward's work and/or in which he appeared. The result is an astounding list of film credits, including--on occasion--that of composer. Judged on his contribution to cinema alone, No l Coward would have left a legacy matched by very few. With this detailed chronicle--which includes quotes from Coward himself and a complete filmography--Coward on Film stands as a fitting tribute to that legacy.
