The Unkindest Cuts: The Scissors and the Cinema

A. S. Barnes, 1972. First edition. Hardcover. First edition. Fine in bright, crisp, price clipped dust jacket with a touch of wear at the front fold. Hardcover. 220 pp. Illustrated. A book unique in the history of motion pictures, the story of cut movies--the essentially arbitrary cutting of film scenes and ofter entire performances of well-known actors. The cutting involved in thsi book is not necessarily that routine work of the fim editor's snips but rather the rather more drastic cutting done at the request of an "expert" producer, a powerful leading player or even by the film's exhibitors.
