Arthur Penn—director of The Miracle Worker, Bonnie and Clyde, Alice’s Restaurant, and Little Big Man—was at the height of his career when Robin Wood’s analysis of the American director was originally published in 1969. Although Wood then considered Penn’s career only through Little Big Man, Arthur Penn remains the most insightful discussion of the director yet published. In this new edition, editor Barry Keith Grant presents the full text of the original monograph along with additional material, showcasing Wood’s groundbreaking and engaging analysis of the director. Of all the directors that Wood profiled, Penn is the only one with whom he developed a personal relationship. In fact, Penn welcomed Wood on the set of Little Big Man (1969), where he interviewed the director during production of the film and again years later when Penn visited Wood at home. Both interviews are included in this expanded edition of Arthur Penn, as are five other pieces written over a period of sixteen years, including the extended discussion of The Chase that was the second chapter of Wood’s later important book Hollywood from Vietnam to Reagan. The volume also includes a complete filmography and a foreword by Barry Keith Grant. The fourth classic monograph by Wood to be republished by Wayne State University Press, this volume will be welcomed by film scholars and readers interested in American cinematic and cultural history.

Arthur Penn: American Director is the comprehensive biography of one of the twentieth centuryÕs most influential filmmakers. Thematic chapters lucidly convey the story of PennÕs life and career, as well as pertinent events in the history of American film, theater, and television. In the process of tracing the full spectrum of his career, Arthur Penn reveals the enormous scope of PennÕs talent and his profound impact on the entertainment industry in an accessible, engaging account of the well-known directorÕs life. Born in 1922 to a family of Philadelphia immigrants, the young Penn was bright but aimlessÑespecially compared to his talented older brother Irving, who would later become a world-renowned photographer. Penn drifted into directing, but he soon mastered the craft in three mediums: television, Broadway, and motion pictures. By the time he made Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Penn was already a Tony-winning Broadway director and one of the prodigies of the golden age of television. His innovative handling of the story of two Depression-era outlaws not only challenged HollywoodÕs strict censorship code, it shook the foundation of studio system itself and ushered in the film revolution. His next filmsÑAliceÕs Restaurant (1969), Little Big Man (1970), and Night Moves (1975)Ñbecame instant classics, summoning emotions from shock to sensuality and from confusion to horror, all of which reflected the complexity of the man behind the camera. The personal and creative odyssey captured in these pages includes memorable adventures in World War II; the chaotic days of live television; the emergence of Method acting in Hollywood; and experiences with Marlon Brando, Anne Bancroft, Warren Beatty, William Gibson, Lillian Hellman, and a host of other show business legends.

Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1967) changed American cinema, reinvigorating the gangster genre with European, New Wave techniques and a radically candid view of sex and violence. Starring Warren Beatty, who also produced, and Faye Dunaway, the film whipped up a frenzy of controversy and paved the way for the "New Hollywood" of the 70s. For Lester D. Friedman, Bonnie and Clyde is a pivotal film that reflected and contributed to the profound change in American values in the 60s and 70s. After detailing how Penn, who was specially interviewed for the book, Beatty, and writers David Newman and Robert Benton brought the film to the screen (in the face of studio hostility), Friedman explores its revolutionary treatment of youth, fashion, crime and authority.
