Joseph Leo Mankiewicz (/ˈmæŋkəwɪts/; February 11, 1909 – February 5, 1993) was an American film director, screenwriter, and producer. Mankiewicz had a long Hollywood career, and won the Oscar back-to-back for both Best Director and Best Writing, Screenplay for A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and All About Eve (1950).
Pictures Will Talk book. Joe Mankiewicz's long and brilliant career as a motion picture screenwriter, director and producer gets a thorough going-over in Geist's book, a hybrid biography and critical analysis. Despite being published in the '70s with Mackiewicz's full cooperation, the book is pretty honest and straightforward. Both his classics and his more forgettable misfires (such as the misguided 1967 comedy The Honey Pot) get equal, copiously annotated treatment.
However, if anyone is interested in Mankiewicz's film style, another book in print does give a great examination of the making of the Quiet American in Vietnam. It tells the true and detailed story of Mank's problems there. See A THINKER'S DAMN by William Russo. This year's top sellers. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Pictures Will Talk: The Life And Films Of Joseph L. Mankiewicz (A Da Capo paperback). I was very excited to read about Mankiewicz, since I had heard good things about him and his directing. The book is very good and honest, but the more I read, the less impressed I was with the subject. The book tells a lot of information and insights about the film industry, which I liked.
