Journalist, screenwriter, novelist, soldier, filmmaker – Samuel Fuller was one of American cinema’s most prolific and multi-faceted talents. However, the films based on Fuller’s early work as a screenwriter remain under appreciated.It Happened in Hollywood (1937)Regarded by Fuller as his ‘first real Hollywood credit’, the film has a now-familiar premise: the silent film star who finds they are unable to make the transition to talkies. Blending comedy, romance, action, and a playful self-reflexive streak, the film established Fuller in Hollywood. Adventure in Sahara (1938)Fuller takes full story credit on this rip-roaring adventure yarn inspired – he claimed – by Victor Hugo, Beau Geste, and Mutiny on the Bounty.Power of the Press (1943)Drawing on Fuller’s own experiences as young newspaperman and journalist, this crime drama is a passionate cry for freedom of speech and expression. The film also features Fuller’s first fully formed and vital female heroine in the shape of the impassioned Edwina (Gloria Dickson).NB! Vi gjør oppmerksom på at produktet ikke har norske undertekster.
