The first full-length account of the life and work of Joseph H. Lewis, the noted director of films such as My Name is Julia Ross (1945) and The Halliday Brand (1957). Because most commentators and interviewers have focused on Lewis' contributions to film noir and particularly Gun Crazy and The Big Combo, Nevins tries to give equal time to Lewis' early B westerns and television series episodes, including episodes of The Rifleman and Gunsmoke that he directed at the end of his career. Nevins's narrative is interspersed with Lewis's own reflections on his life and career, adding a personal element that enlivens the text. A detailed filmography includes Lewis's editorial work, feature films, and episodes of TV series.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...an affectionate, informative tribute to this undersung auteur...a brief but enjoyable read with solid research value for fans of some of the best of classic television and, of course, Lewis aficionados. * Bright Lights Film Journal *
Interesting reading about a man who always put extra effort into his work and left a legacy of some of the most visual B-westerns and TV shows ever made. * Western Clippings *
