My Life as a Mankiewicz

Tom Mankiewicz

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter revolves around Mankiewicz growing up in Los Angeles. He writes about the successes and failures of his family - mother's psychological problems, dad's infidelities, brother's resentment toward father and brother. Dad Joe has a great career going but not without problems like the battle at the Director's Guild over the Hollywood witchhunt - making directors sign an allegiance to their country. Joe disapproves of this and battles Cecil B. DeMille.

Keywords:   John Ford, Cecil B. DeMille, William Wyler, Frank Capra, George Stevens, Richard Brooks
