If you were first exposed to television as a child in the early 1950s when your parents bought their first set, you probably saw the words directed by Paul Landres on the screen several times a week. His name became familiar by sheer repetition on the end credits of episode after episode of what youngsters were watching in those days: The Cisco Kid, Boston Blackie, The Lone Ranger, Sky King, Cowboy G-Men, and Ramar of the Jungle. This book is organized as a sort of prose documentary, with Landres' reminiscences interspersed with Nevin's own narration. Includes photos and a filmography.
Francis M. Nevins is Professor of Law, St. Louis University School of Law. He also authored Joseph H. Lewis: Overview, Interview, and Filmography, number 59 in The Scarecrow Filmmakers Series.
