Shadows and Light: Journeys with Outlaws in Revolutionary Hollywood by Garry Kent
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book illuminates the 'reel' revolution that started in 1960 with director John Cassavetes' work. It is written by writer/director, actor, stuntman, special effects guru, production manager Gary Kent. An officer in this revolution, Kent compiled credits on over one hundred motion pictures and won several major film awards. This book is Kent's homage to the artistic, talented makers of magic, who began on the bottom of the dog-pile making biker flicks and nudie cuties and today find themselves on top of the Hollywood heap. The book is filled with memories, reminiscences, inside information, heretofore unknown facts, anecdotes and photos accumulated over forty-some years in independent, outrageous and courageous cinema. Kent provides a glimpse into the mystery of preparing stunt, action and special effects sequences without resorting to computer graphics and offers an inside take at the making of some favorite motion pictures, from concept to release. The books features stories of William Shatner, Ann-Margret, Brian De Palma, Bruce Campbell, Ed Wood, Charles Manson, Frank Zappa, Duane Eddy, the Hells Angels and others.
