Picture Overview

The New Yorker journalist Lillian Ross's Picture presents the story of director John Huston and producer Gottfried Reinhardt's The Red Badge of Courage production. Hoping to learn whatever she can about the American motion-picture industry, Ross follows the men from their project's inception to its first showings. Through five shorter journalistic accounts, Ross creates a novelistic rendering of Huston and Reinhardt's emotional and professional efforts to convert Stephen Crane's masterful Civil War novel, addressing themes of friendship, business, and artistic integrity.
