The definitive biography of this innovative and influential director.

JAMES WHALE: A New World of Gods and Monsters
James Curtis
University of Minnesota Press | 480 pages | 64 halftones | 2003
ISBN 0-8166-4386-5 | paperback | $19.95

James Whale directed some of the most stylish movies of the 1930s, and
created a new type of horror film, most famously in Frankenstein. James
Curtis has written the definitive life of James Whale, taking him from rural
England to a German prison camp, to London¹s West End, and ultimately to
Hollywood, where he profoundly influenced several generations of filmmakers.

³It is immaculately researched, smoothly written, honest without being
lascivious, a model of its kind.² ‹Scott Eyman, Boston Book Review

³Curtis has not only produced the standard work on Whale, but also a
long-overdue revaluation of a major director.² ‹Sight and Sound
