ARTHUR PENN, 1922: THEMES AND VARIANTS

USA, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme E)

Director: Robert Hughes

Arthur Penn at home and at work, including long and revealing interviews with the director, whose three latest films, Bonny and Clyde, Alice's Restaurant, and Little Big Man won worldwide acclaim.

The technical quality of this film is excellent and a special word of praise should go to the fine editing of Bernard Stone.
