Storyline

Considered by many to be the greatest director of the 20th century, David Lean knew filmmaking and the art of film directing. If David were alive today, he would be celebrating his 100th year. In 1973 in a rare and candied interview at the American Film Institute, then aspiring filmmaker, Allan Holzman, got to meet the man himself. Now for the first time, that interview, hosted by Charlton Heston, has been restored and expanded. Come and hear tales of the making of masterworks such as Bridge on the River Kwai, Dr. Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia (recognized as the highest cinematic achievement of the 20th century by ASC). Film enthusiasts, students of film and admires of Lean's art are in for a royal treat as the spirit of David Lean lives again in Allan Holzman's The Art of Directing: David Lean. Written by Reed Simonsen
