talk & booksigning for "Leni: The Life and Work of Leni Riefenstahl"
Thursday, May 3rd at 7 pm
at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco)
"Leni: The Life and Work of Leni Riefenstahl" is the definitive
biography of the woman known as "Hitler's filmmaker" - one of the most
controversial personalities of the 20th century. Relying on new
sources, Steven Bach has produced an exceptional work of historical
investigation which both untangles the past and is an objective and
unsparing appraisal of a woman of spectacular gifts corrupted by
ruthless personal ambition.
Steven Bach is the author of two previous biographies, "Marlene
Dietrich: Life and Legend" and "Dazzler: The Life and Times of Moss
Hart." He was in charge of worldwide production for United Artists,
where he was involved in such films as Raging Bull, Manhattan, The
French Lieutenant's Woman, and Heaven's Gate, about which he wrote the
bestseller "Final Cut."
