Paul Duncan - Stanley ​Kubrick - The Complete Films
"A ​director is a kind of idea and taste machine" _Stanley Kubrick_

Paul Duncan - W. ​Allen
Woody ​Allen began his career writing jokes and scripts, then progressed to stand-up and acting, and finally wrote and directed his first film, Take the Money and Run, in 1969. This was a screwball comedy that starred Allen as a hapless and self-demeaning schlemiel who bumbles his way through preposterous and hilarious situations. His first serious recognition as a filmmaker came with the Oscar he was awarded for Annie Hall in 1977. Allen progressed from joke comedy to psychological comedy with films like Manhattan, Stardust Memories, and Hannah and Her Sisters. Allens work has also come to reveal the poignant emotional mix of tragicomedy in the charm and fantasy of The Purple Rose of Cairo, the nostalgia of Radio Days, the multiple plots of Crimes and Misdemeanors, and the bittersweet tone of Alice. Movie Icons is a series of photo books that feature the most famous personalities in the history of cinema. These 192-page books are visual biographies of the stars.

Paul Duncan - Welles
A ​recognized prodigy at age 10, world famous by age 23, Orson Welles was a triple magician of theater, radio, and film—and by age 25 a promising figure in American politics. President Franklin D. Roosevelt encouraged him to try a run for the Senate; newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst branded him a pariah. But by the time he turned 30, Orson Welles’ professional success ended irreversibly; from then until the day he died, he endured ridicule and reproach over what many judged his “failure.” Few knew how feverishly he had persisted as an independent filmmaker. Now, decades after his death, “new” work keeps emerging, and his reputation as an undefeated genius and creator only grows.

For each title, series editor Paul Duncan has painstakingly selected approximately 150 high quality enigmatic and sumptuous portraits, colorful posters and lobby cards, rare film stills, and previously unpublished candid photos showing the stars as they really are.

Scott Eyman - Paul Duncan - John ​Ford
""When ​in doubt, make a Western."" -- John Ford Director of nearly 150 feature films and winner of six Oscars, John Ford (1895-1973) was the quintessential American filmmaker. Ford produced an unparalleled body of work that includes such classics as The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine, The Quiet Man, and The Searchers. In response to critics and fans who praised his work as having a powerful, singular vision, Ford was known for making statements such as ""It's no use talking to me about art, I make pictures to pay the rent""; though such assertions betrayed his genuine love of filmmaking, which he called ""the only thing I really like to do."" Author Scott Eyman calls Ford ""America's Homer"" -- a fitting title for the filmmaker who helped frame the American experience for the world.

James Ursini - Paul Duncan - Bogart
Humphrey ​Bogart is a legend and an icon whose magic has not dissipated with time. The wounded tough guy image Bogart molded over the decades of his career still resonates. There is a truth to this image; audiences sense that the world-weariness, the angst, and the vulnerability, which made him an icon of noir as well, were rooted somehow in reality. Even if the spectator knew nothing about his personal life, they believed and still do believe in his performances in cinema classics like Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, High Sierra, The Big Sleep, In a Lonely Place, and The African Queen. The Movie Icon series: People talk about Hollywood glamour, about studios that had more stars than there are in heaven, about actors who weren't actors but were icons. Other people talk about these things, Taschen shows you. Movie Icons is a series of photo books that feature the most famous personalities in the history of cinema.

Paul Duncan - Alfred ​Hitchcock
"Mystery ​is mystifying; it is an intellectual thing. Suspense is an emotional thing." - (Alfred Hitchcock) Hitchcock’s name is synonymous with suspense - that is to say, masterful, spine-tingling, thrilling, shocking, excruciating, eye-boggling suspense. With masterpieces such as "Rebecca, Vertigo, Rear Window," and Psycho, Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) fashioned an extremely original approach to filmmaking that is oft imitated though never equaled; his ability to enthrall and frighten with careful pacing, subtlety, and suggestiveness earned him a prestigious reputation which grows more powerful as time goes by. He is and will always remain the master of cinematic suspense. This book, which traces his life and career, from his earliest silent films to his last picture in 1976, also includes a special bonus that Hitch fans will especially enjoy: an illustrated and annotated list of each of his cameos.

Paul Duncan - Grant
He's ​the most self-invented man in movies, this side of Charlie Chaplin. Like Chapin, Cary Grant grew up poor, trained as an acrobat, and brims with confidence, romance, and a spirit of merry larceny—he just has a better tailor. His impeccable timing and light, cat burglar's touch at stealing women's hearts were perfect for the jaunty heroics and romantic farce of such classic films as An Affair to Remember, Notorious, His Girl Friday, North By Northwest, Bringing Up Baby, and To Catch a Thief. In the end, the role became the man—he had ceased to play "Cary Grant" and simply was Cary Grant. One could wish no man any greater happiness than that. The Hollywood Icon series: People talk about Hollywood glamour, about studios that had more stars than there are in heaven, about actors who weren't actors but were icons. Other people talk about these things, Taschen shows you. Hollywood Icons is a series of photo books that feature the most famous movie icons in the history of cinema. These 192-page books are visual biographies of the stars. For each title, series editor Paul Duncan has painstaking selected approximately 150 high quality enigmatic and sumptuous portraits, colorful posters and lobby cards, rare film stills, and previously unpublished candid photos showing the stars as they really are.

Paul Duncan - Dietrich
Marlene ​Dietrich once said, “I am not a myth.” But by referencing the term, Dietrich only reinforces the fact more emphatically. For, using almost any common dictionary definition of that word, Dietrich is a myth. Her image was fashioned by director Josef von Sternberg in films like The Blue Angel, Shanghai Express, and The Scarlet Empress, after which she maintained a Hollywood career that included Destry Rides Again, Rancho Notorious, and an accomplished performance in Billy Wilder’s Witness for the Prosecution. She has been an object of worship to millions throughout the decades, up to and including this jaded, post-modern 21st century. She is the “intellectual’s pin up girl,” as author Herman G. Weinberg called her, of filmmakers and film critics alike. She is the “Monstre Sacre” as one of her recent biographers has labeled her. She is her own “Superior Product,” (her daughter’s words) manufactured and refined in her fertile brain. In other words, Marlene Dietrich is an icon for all ages.
