Overview

Ken Annakin was one of the greatest international film directors. The last of the English directors to make it on the international arena (others included Hitchcock and Lean), this 'no holds barred' autobiography traces Annakin's career from his early British films through to Hollywood. He has directed, written and produced over fifty feature films in Africa, India, Malaysia, Scandinavia, China, Europe and America. So You Wanna Be A Director? is an entertaining and witty travelogue, as well as an important document of film history.Annakin's book is forthright and pulls no punches. It has become a classic among directors' autobiographies. Annakin details the dizzying heights and bleak lows of his career. This master of family entertainment sounds a loud clarion call for a return to motion pictures that are fun for all of the family.
