A vivid account of the day-to-day planning, the people, and the problems that went into the making of Fellini's 1963 film 8 1/2. Written by Deena Boyer, a personal friend of Fellini's, and presented as entries in her daily journal. Her record captures the fragile texture of life on the motion picture set: how ideas are germinated, how the grow (and sometimes wither) and how the people--Fellini, the cast, makeup artists, propmen, designers, and grips--work and play.
Illustrated with stills from the film, photographs of Fellini, his actors, and his staff at work on the set. Afterword by Dwight Macdonald.
