For people who know Bunuel's work, & hopefully there are many in this category, there's no reason to recommend this bk. Everything Bunuel ever did interests me - even the films that I'm not that enthusiastic about - like "Wuthering Heights". & there are still so many that I haven't seen! If I needed any excuse to stay alive longer, one of them might be so that I can eventually check out everything by Bunuel - like "Robinson Crusoe" & "La Fièvre monte à El Pao". The latter film being a political one set in a Fascist regime in South America. I wonder if it's ever been subtitled in English & distributed in the US? Maybe it's TOO POLITICAL FOR THIS COUNTRY, eh?!

To answer my own question, I looked it up online. Apparently, a shortened version was distributed in the US - although I didn't find an English title. The review I read of it wasn't very enthusiastic.

ANYWAY, bks like this one about Bunuel help people like me know what I'm missing. There're 13 listed & discussed here that I'd never heard of or encountered in theaters or on VHS &/or DVD. The cover image that I just added if from the hardback 1st American edition.
