About This Book

This illuminating study provides a comprehensive reassessment of Deborah Kerr's career, highlighting lesser-known aspects of her star persona. Sarah Street traces the specific qualities of Kerr's screen performances, paying close attention to facial expression, gesture, voice and costume. Covering many iconic films, including The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Black Narcissus, From Here to Eternity, An Affair to Remember, The Innocents and Bonjour Tristesse, this book follows Kerr's journey from her foundational image as an 'English rose' to her performances of challenging roles in which she was cast 'against type'. Illustrated with images from Kerr's films, this unique case study contributes to the critical understanding of film stars and screen performance. An ideal resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of film and television studies, this fascinating guide will also appeal to film lovers and anyone interested in Kerr's complex career.
