I'm working on a soon-to-be-published collection of selected letters belonging 
to Elia Kazan at the University of Missouri with Professor Al Devlin.  Currently, 
I am in the research phases of the project and am trying to find sources that 
might lead me to find any information describing Kazan's international 
reputation.  I have been able to find a few small articles in the New York 
Times regarding the international film festivals his films were in however, I 
have been unsuccessful in actually finding international reviews on his work or 
international articles that reference to Kazan's reputation as a film director.  If 
anyone has any information or knows of a good international source please 
point me in the right direction.  I would greatly appreciate it.

Also, anything that would describe Kazan's national reputation as a film 
director, his development of his technical skills on the screen (lighting, set 
design, etc), and his constant addressing of social issues (sex, divorce, anti-
semitism) in his films would also be greatly appreciated.  Thanks to all in 
advance who contribute and have a beautiful day!
