Sam Staggs


The Directors suite DVD of Douglas Sirk's Imitation of life features an excellent interview with author Sam Staggs. He has written a behind the scenes book about this great film called Born to be Hurt. His other movie books include About All About Eve, Sunset Boulevard and A Streetcar Named Desire.

I read his book on "SUNSET BOULEVARD". I was prepared to really enjoy it. But Staggs ruined it by putting Wilder's then writing partner, Charles Brackett, on a pedestal; while trashing his future partner, I.A.L. Diamond. His comments on the latter screenwriter really PISSED ME OFF.
