The bottom fell out of the film publishing industry perhaps three or four years back. Some publishers closed the film publishing divisions. This was caused by the use of the internet as a reference work, and the greater utility of the internet for discussion, photographs, et cetera. A number of books you would think were wholly publishable had to be published privately or not at all.

The situations is only 'serious if on remains rooted in the print-press world. Obviously, as the market tells us, the print-press world has been replaced by a superior product. The place where you are reading these words.

I would too.

With specific respect to the Locations used, Sir Christopher Frayling has found them all. You can see them on the special edition of the DVD at the end of the documentary. He only shows Then&Now shots, which tells us that he has found them, not where he found them. I am sure he knows where they are, it is just that we are left not knowing. I will be quite happy to hunt them down. The time would be pleasurably spent but the time involved would be quite large.

Once I have final PDF pages, I will post some on the board. I have had the project largely on ice while focusing on my normal work - science is still "publish or perish" these days, but, fortunately, that side is going well. I have accummulated quite a bit of holiday, which I can dedicate to getting the book completed. The first goal will be to get it in electronic form . . . The text is complete, except for quite a few figure legends, the cover is designed, the book chapters are set etc. What I need to do to finish the book is to complete the legends (small job), exchange the DVD images for blu-ray frames (much better quality, but a technical problem at present), and, most importantly, get someone locally to take my rough Adobe InDesign layout and professionally complete the layout (print ready). The looooong time it is taking is more than an embarrassment . . .

The user name Hanley was banned by a program glitch a long time ago. The copyright problem is not so bad. I had to pay fees (including copyright) for a large number of behind-the-scenes and other stills scanned from the original negatives. In the case of other behind-the-scenes stills (not from negative, but very good), there are no copyright concerns. However, all non behind-the-scenes stills plus DVD frames are eligible for copyright charges - the fees for the 50 or so DVD frames are less (US$100 versus $300 per frame) when the book has an educational value, as in "making of . . ." or "film history". All Civil War (comparison) photos are public domain (no copyright issue), although, in most cases, I decided to purchase high quality prints from the Library of Congress.
I will self-publish because it is unrealistic to find an enthusiastic publisher for a book about a single movie. Also, publishers tend to compromise quality (cheap paper, cheap printing, black & white etc) to optimize their profit margin. As soon as I have the book in digital form, I will distribute lots of sample pages, before I make the committed step to print the book (expensive!).

The book is complete, just needs to be published now. So maybe later this year but as it is the 50th Anniversary next year maybe he will wait till then.

Best wishes,
