Oswald Morris was Director of Photography on nearly 60 films, including Sleuth, Oliver! and The Wiz, the latter two of which earned him Academy Award (R) nominations. In 1972 he won the Oscar (R) for Best Cinematography for his work on Fiddler on the Roof. In 1998, he was awarded the OBE for "services to cinematography and the film industry." Geoffrey Bull is a freelance writer with 20 years of experience on several UK newspapers and specializes in writing about film, books, and the theater.
This is a great read, written in a witty and 'can't put down' style....Congratulations to Ossie, Geoffrey Bull and all concerned for producing a fine book. * Image Technology *
Here's a bit of good news. Oswald Morris has written his memoirs. Who's he? You almost surely don't know, but in this case, that's a good thing. He's one of that legion of film personnel who have contributed to some of the best films of the past 50 years but almost never bothered to pass along their recollections before going out of this world forever. Film history just got a little richer. * The Big Reel *
