Description: In this witty and informative autobiography, written just before he died at the age of ninety-six, the British cinematographer Freddie Young takes us on a journey through the history of cinema, from his early days processing celluloid by hand for silent movies in Shepherd's Bush, London, to his adventures with David Lean in far-flung locations all over the world white firming Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago, films for which Young received Academy Awards.

Both entertaining and enlightening, Young includes anecdotes about the directors and stars he worked with -- from George Cukor and Vincente Minnelli to Ava Gardner and Elizabeth Taylor -- as well as offering an invaluable guide to how cinematography evolved from a craft into an art, providing information on how to set up shots, and explaining how a director's vision can best be fulfilled. Seventy Light Years is a book filled with one man's love for and knowledge of film -- a delight for film buffs and an education in itself for film students.
