Example text

Blitzstein’s “play with music” was adapted to cinema, finally, in 1999, by Tim Robbins, who also included the political machinations involved behind the scenes and the sociopolitical context of the 1930s. Thereafter, he became semireclusive in New York but was well off financially because of the Threepenny royalties, especially his popular ballad “Mack the Knife,” which was recorded by LOUIS ARMSTRONG, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, and others. He came to a bad end in 1964, when he was beaten to death by three sailors in a back alley in Martinique.

The final straw was a dispute over the release of the book This Is Orson Welles, which Welles refused to authorize at the last minute. Bogdanovich sent all of the material (which had been stored for years in different places) to Welles, who then turned it over to OJA KODAR, who was supposed to see that it was published. Kadar approached Bogdanovich about helping her to organize the material, but Bogdanovich, who was having his own financial and emotional problems at the time, referred her to JONATHAN ROSENBAUM, who shaped the material and saw the book through publication long after Welles’s death.
