FAMOUS FACES YET NOT THEMSELVES: The Misfits and Icons of Postwar America

Written by George Kouvaros, professor of film at the University of South Wales, Famous Faces Yet Not Themselves presents a complex study of the Magnum photographs from the 1961 film The Misfits. Kouvaros draws new connections between star power, art photography and film. His work builds from the heart of the film industry, undergoing rabid transformation in 1961, and ties it back to the societal changes facing the United States at large during the era.
