Cinema Sentries and Applause Books have teamed up to give three lucky readers the opportunity to win Hiroshi Tasogawa's All the Emperor’s Men.
In his review, Sentry Greg Barbrick claims the book "details one of the greatest mysteries of [Akira] Kurosawa’s career. After being hired to direct the Japanese half of the war film Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970), he was fired after just three weeks. At that point, he was already 10 days behind in his shooting schedule, and had only eight minutes of footage to show for his efforts. The true story of what went so dramatically wrong has never fully explained until now. It is an incredible tale, and in his role as interpreter for Kurosawa, the author witnessed everything." He also raves that "All the Emperor’s Men is one of those rare film history books that is positively riveting."
