    One thought on “Magic Hour: A Life in Movies”

    1. Jack Cardiff was one of the great cinematographers, a beacon within the British film industry. His memoirs, I figured, would illuminate some of his techniques (it does) while also spilling the beans on the directors and stars with whom he worked (it does). Therefore, this was a book I eagerly waited as it marched up my collection funnel.I became a chain readera golden chain of enthralling links that hooked me securely on subject after subject.Cardiff started his career as a young boy and simply [...]

    2. I think in life it's fitting to find at least one book that will function as your working "bible" in relation to the profession that you are aiming to embark upon. Mentors can be found within pages of these 'bibles'- autobiographical books that tell the stories of great craftsmen who yearn to educate and share the joys of their lives and their experiences. These books have the ability to cling to the mind, like a great love, and remain a constant source of inspiration.Magic Hour is my literary b [...]

    3. An awesome autobiography from one of the greatest cinematographers in the history of film. Despite coming across as almost congenitally humble, Jack Cardiff carved for himself an extraordinary career and peppered it with touching and memorable interludes with some of the biggest names in film, including Marilyn Monroe, Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren and many more. More than just a director of photography, I feel that Cardiff was actually the last great Impressionist of the 20th century-- [...]

    4. Interesting memoir from Jack Cardiff on his life in movies from the early days as a clapperboard operator to senior cameraman and director.Detailed insights particularly on the difficulty of shooting The African Queen and his personal friendships with Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren.There is a slight tendency for some of the stories to be a little like:"d then I met Frank Sinatrad then I met Jean Cocteaud then I met David O Selznick"

    5. Great anecdotes about the early days of British cinema and also on the stars. I remember Cardiff writes beautiful personal anecdotes about Marilyn, Loren and Heburn. Lots of interesting stuff about The Red Shoes too.
