Description

Preston Sturges set a new standard for creativity in Hollywood. He not only wrote such films as “The Lady Eve,” “Sullivan‛s Travels,” “The Palm Beach Story,” and “The Miracle of Morgan‛s Creek,” he directed them as well at the rate of two a year. He opened the door for an entire generation of writers-turned-directors and made some of the most popular comedies of the sound era. At his peak, he earned the third-highest salary in the country. He was an inventor, songwriter, actor, playwright, restauranteur, industrialist, and winner of the Academy Award. He even owned a production company with his temperamental equal, Howard Hughes. Drawn from interviews, letters, and other primary source materials, this is the story of a legendary American filmmaker, who made and lost two fortunes, and whose genius shown brightly, as he put it, “between flops.”
