It is a well-known fact that Film Directors are often fickle and very difficult people to please. For example Alfred Hitchcock in the course of making his masterpiece Psycho kept poor Janet Leigh in the shower for days when shooting a vital scene, and gave her a life-long phobia about taking showers.
It is however a little known fact that they have also been, almost without exception, avid bridge players and over the years have assiduously tried to work bridge scenes into their films. Sadly many of these have ended up on the cutting room floor due to the lack of a similar enthusiasm for bridge amongst studio executives.
Against all the odds many of these scenes have survived, and at great expense and after exhaustive research the author of this book has unearthed a number of these forgotten treasures and presents them here in an effort to show you what might have been a part of one of your favourite movies.
So the adverts have ended, the credits are rolling, sit back and relax with a series of 20th Century neglected works of art.
