I am currently working on an essay about Disney sequence director, storyman and producer Perce Pearce and thanks to Michael Barrier just realized that I had forgotten to tap into a key source, director Ken Annakin's autobiography, So You Wanna Be a Director?

In fact, I also realized that I did not own this book yet and had not mentioned it anywhere. Since Annakin directed at least 4 of the early Disney live action movies (and I am probably forgetting some of them), I have just rectified both mistakes today by mentioning the book here and by ordering it.

I am pleased to see that Perce Pearce is getting some attention at long last, and look forward to reading your essay.

Annakin's book is very interesting but does have a few inaccuracies.

Do you know if Annakin makes mention of working with Ronald Searle in the book? Searle collaborated with him on the title sequences for MONTE CARLO OR BUST! and THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN.

I have not yet received the book so can't answer for the moment.
