Barbara Roisman Cooper is a freelance writer specializing in celebrity profiles for various publications.


"Yours is an extraordinary life, and I found the book enthralling. It encompasses so much of our film history, and for you to have mastered three great film crafts, to have worked with Hitch, Coward, Lean, Guinness, Powell, and Pressburger, even Garland and Formby, and to have been responsible for such magnificent films as The Horse's Mouth, Tunes of Glory, and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie places you firmly in the pantheon of great British filmmakers." - London Times; "Told in a gentlemanly style, the book provides a valuable first hand record of what it was like to work in the British Film industry in the Thirties and Forties." - Film Review (UK)"
