    Review: “Kazan on Directing”

    By kyle | April 12, 2009

    Also in today’s Post, I look at Elia Kazan’s remarks on directing, as gathered in an interesting new book that looks at the craft from one of its most talented practitioners, the director of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” “Death of a Salesman” and “On the Waterfront.”
