Proprietor: The Screenplay & the Story Behind the Film : Unique among film books, Ismail Merchant's The Proprietor not only includes the screenplay, it also shows the creative and practical process in close-up. In finding material for his European-American directorial debut, Merchant wanted "extraordinary, unbelievable things to happen" through the seemingly random events of everyday life such as: a meeting with the great French film actress Jeanne Moreau; a magnificent apartment in Paris, which was to become Merchant's own home; and the intricacies of the traditional French property auction. With a foreword by Moreau, lavish illustrations, screenplay, synopsis, and a special section on the making of the film, The Proprietor reveals some of the secrets of the acclaimed Merchant Ivory working method. It also shows how, despite the rigors of making an important artistic statement today, the final result can live happily ever after.
