John Landis Biography


Format: 250 pages, Full color & b&w photographs, 8" x 11"

JOHN LANDIS, by film historian and journalist Giulia D'Agnolo Vallan, is the first American book published about the legendary filmmaker. Using an in-depth interview with Landis, as well as original interviews with and essays by his collaborators, colleagues and film critics, the book examines the life and career of the man who gave us such classic films as THE KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE, THE BLUES BROTHERS, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, TRADING PLACES, COMING TO AMERICA, THE THREE AMIGOS, and the ground breaking MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER among many others.

Contributors include Guillermo Del Toro, David Cronenberg, Frank Oz, Sam Raimi, Costa Gavras, B.B. King, Dan Aykroyd, Aaron McGruder, Elmer Bernstein, Rick Baker, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Frayling, Harold Ramis, and many more. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, production and ad art, many never before published from Mr. Landis's personal collection.

Whether you know him for his award winning documentaries, SLASHER, and the recent MR. WARMTH, THE DON RICKLES PROJECT, or his comedies, musicals or horror films, JOHN LANDIS is a fascinating look at the man responsible for many of our pop culture icons. It is available now for the 25th Anniversary of MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER.
