John Mitchell entered the film industry in 1933, working as a rewind boy in the projection theatre at Ealing Studios - just five years after the advent of 'Talkies'. Over the course of the next sixty years he rose to become a top ranking sound mixer and recordist for such films as Olivier's Hamlet and The Prince and the Showgirl with Marilyn Monroe and David Lean's Great Expectations and A Passage to India, both with Alec Guiness.
This book is a must for movie buffs and anyone with a deep rooted interest in films and the talented personalities within the industry. It will delight both young and old filmgoers with its nostalgia - and forms a unique tribute to the British Film Industry. The book was first published to coincide with the celebration of the centenary of cinema. Now that we are into a new millennium it is even more significant as an historical record of one man's progress and experiences working within the industry for over 60 years of the last century.
