Nothing Sacred:
The Cinema of William Wellman
By
John Andrew Gallagher and Frank Thompson
Deluxe Limited Edition
$150

Nearly four decades in the making, Nothing Sacred: The Cinema of William Wellman is now ready for pre-order. Sure to become a collector’s item, this full color, coffee table book-sized epic is illustrated with hundreds of images, many never before published. It covers in exhaustive detail every movie Wellman worked on over the course of five decades.

The pre-sale will last for 90 days only, ending on December 5, 2017. After that, no more copies will be sold. And only the number sold will be printed.

This is not a First Edition – it’s an Only Edition.

As a filmmaker “Wild Bill” Wellman was as experimental as Scorsese, as audacious as Tarantino, as sentimental as Spielberg. He was a star maker with an amazing eye for talent in new actors: Gary Cooper, James Cagney, Robert Mitchum, Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Barbara Stanwyck, Bette Davis, Rosalind Russell, Robert Taylor, James Stewart, Robert Preston, Anthony Quinn, Richard Widmark, Sidney Poitier, Clint Eastwood -- a roll call of movie greats.

Wellman was the master of nearly every genre as well as an unsung innovator. He helped liberate the sound camera from its early confines, pioneered color movies, and helped establish several important Hollywood trends -- the aviation cycle of 1927-1930, the gangster cycle of 1930-32, the "anti-hero" in American film, and the "adult," psychological Western.

Designed to inspire, enlighten, inform and entertain, Nothing Sacred is a must for actors and filmmakers, movie buffs and serious devotees of the cinema.

Nice words:

"It’s a work that can rightly be described as the most thoroughly researched, detailed, and richly illustrated book ever published on any director" – Thomas Gladysz, Huffington Post

“The most ambitious book ever on a Classic Era director … It is awesome … There is not another coming this or any other year that I would recommend higher.” – John McElwee, Greenbriar Picture Shows

Three weeks from today, we stop selling "Nothing Sacred: The Cinema of William Wellman" by Frank Thompson and John Gallagher.

December 5 is the end. No more copies will be sold after that date. Ever.

This book is huge, deeply detailed, highly entertaining and richly illustrated with more than a thousand images

As for me, it's the most important thing I've ever accomplished.

We sure hope that you will order this rare limited edition while you can.
