The Crime Films of Anthony Mann

Max Alvarez

University Press of Mississippi

The final chapter provides an overview of Anthony Mann’s life and career between 1951 and his premature death in 1967. The changes in the film industry as a result of anti-trust legislation, television, and the Hollywood blacklist, are documented as well as Mann’s collaboration with James Stewart on an acclaimed series of westerns and the director’s eventual gravitation towards such expensive epics as El Cid and Fall of the Roman Empire in the 1960s. During this time there were projects Mann pursued that would have returned him to the crime fold: The Ceremony (which Laurence Harvey finally directed), The Great Train Robbery (made as Robbery by Peter Yates), and the unfilmed J.B. Priestley spy novel The Shapes of Sleep. Dramatically, the film Mann was directing at the time of his death was his first contemporary thriller since Side Street – A Dandy in Aspic (completed by the film’s star, Laurence Harvey).
