Brett Halsey On Screen (Paperback) – by John B. Murray

Brett Halsey started as a heart-throb in teen pictures (The Cry Baby Killer with Jack Nicholson, cult flick Speed Crazy), moved up to minor classic Return Of The Fly with Vincent Price, and on into the mainstream with pictures like The Best Of Everything and Return to Peyton Place, opposite Mary Astor. When film production boomed in Rome in the early 60s, Golden Globe winner Halsey was one of the Hollywood stars who migrated there, becoming the favoured leading man of Italian directors Riccardo Freda, Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento – and starred in Argento’s famous Western Today It’s Me….Tomorrow You. British author John B. Murray has compiled a fascinating visual history of his career in this book of film stills and publicity photos. The book contains images of him with such colleagues as Tony Curtis, Broderick Crawford, Clint Eastwood, Dana Andrews, Lloyd Bridges, Susan Hayward, Ursula Andress, Omar Sharif and Yvonne Craig.

Over 380 B/W photos illustrate his unique career. Printed on quality paper that really brings out the half tones of the photos.
