Information
First edition first print hardback of A BRITISH PICTURE: An Autobiography by Ken Russell and published by William Heinemann Ltd. in 1989. Signed by Russell on the verso of the half title page.

The book is in very good condition (green cloth boards with silver lettering to spine) with light bumping to spine edges and tanning to pages. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which is protected in an archival sleeve and has light creasing to edges. Internally the pages are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

The autobiography of Britain's most controversial film director, the maker of Women in Love, The Devils, The Music Lovers and The Rainbow, is as unconventional and brilliant as his best films. Moving with astonishing assurance through time and space, Russell re-creates his life in a series of interconnected episodes - his '30s childhood in Southampton, his first sexual experience (watching Disney’s Pinocchio), his schooldays at the Nautical College in Pangbourne, early careers in the Merchant Marine and the Royal Air Force, dancing days at the Shepherd's Bush Ballet Club, and of course his career as a film-maker, beginning with an extraordinary interview with Huw Weldon for a job on Monitor. Full of marvelously funny anecdotes and fascinating insights into the realities of the film director's life, 'A British Picture' is a remarkable autobiography.
