Sheffield, England: Tomahawk Press. Fine in Near Fine dj. 2005. First Edition. Hardcover. 0953192660 . [book is in perfect condition, clean and tight with no discernible wear; jacket also quite nice, with just a tiny tear at bottom right corner of front panel (held in place and rendered invisible by new jacket protector)]. (B&W and color photos, facsimiles) Surely one of the most comprehensive making-of-a-film books ever published, this volume includes: "first-hand accounts of shooting the film; extracts from the screenplay and script notes; extracts from letters and production documents; hundreds of rare and unusual illustrations; biographies of all the principal actors [including Michael Caine, Stanley Baker and Jack Hawkins] and filmmakers; screenwriter John Prebble's original magazine article on Rorke's Drift [the famous battle that was re-enacted in the film]." Like the song said, who could ask for anything more? The Foreword is by John Barry, who composed the film's memorable score. .
