Product description

On the heels of "Secret Lives of Great Authors, Great Artists, and Great Composers" comes "Secret Lives of Great Filmmakers" - a look at screen legends ranging from D. W. Griffith and Charlie Chaplin to Martin Scorcese and the Coen Brothers. You'll discover that: Alfred Hitchcock lost his belly button during abdominal surgery; he loved to shock his leading ladies by pulling up his shirt and revealing his curiously smooth belly. Charlie Chaplin's poor personal hygiene gave him his signature repellent body odour. David Lynch was a self-proclaimed Ant Wrangler who just adored the insects. And much more!
