The Films of Robert Wise examines the nearly 40 features that represent the director's career. From Curse of the Cat People in 1944 to A Storm in Summer in 2001, Keenan offers a reappraisal of Wise's films so that the true quality of his work can be better appreciated. Drawing on more than 30 hours of interviews with Wise-as well as additional interviews with a number of his collaborators-Keenan reveals both Wise the craftsman and the artist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The author is generally evenhanded in granting measured attention to each of Wise's films. We are lucky to have now a critical study of the films of Robert Wise, but even lucker that The Films of Robert Wise is so persuasive and thoughtful. -- Peter Tonguette * Film International *
Robert Wise (1914-2005) was an American film director and producer best known for such works as The Day the Earth Stood Still, West Side Story, The Sound of Music, and The Sand Pebbles. This book by Keenan (English and modern languages, U. of Maryland) is an appreciative discussion of the value and merit of Wise's filmic craftsmanship that discusses the 40 movies Wise produced or directed. It draws on many interviews with Wise, as well as first-hand observation of Wise's working methods on the set of Star Trek: the Movie. One of those interviews is include in an appendix, together with a bibliography and a filmography. * Reference and Research Book News, November 2007 *
This book was many years in the making, and involves over thirty hours of interviews and countless correspondence with Wise and others associated with these productions. * Film Quarterly *
