About the event
ABOUT THE BOOK: Author Justin Humphreys' new biography George Pal: Man of Tomorrow chronicles the life and films of the trailblazing producer/director/animator who fathered modern science fiction cinema. Pal’s classics like Destination Moon, When Worlds Collide, The War of the Worlds, and The Time Machine were a quantum leap forward for the genre and inspired generations of filmmakers. Authorized by the George Pal Estate, Justin Humphreys’ compelling biography involved twenty years of exhaustive research -- including unprecedented access to the Pal family’s archive -- and features dozens of new interviews with many of Pal’s coworkers, family members, and admirers. Profusely illustrated, this is the definitive biography of this visionary, Academy Award-winning movie futurist and fantasist.
Humphreys will be selling his new book, George Pal: Man of Tomorrow, at the event, but also taking pre-orders for it prior to his talk. If you wish to pre-order it beforehand, please email him at email@example.com.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Justin Humphreys is a writer, film historian, and curator. He works extensively with movie props, costumes, and other memorabilia for Bonhams Auctions and the Academy Museum, among others. His other books include the Rondo Award-winning The Dr. Phibes Companion. George Pal: Man of Tomorrow is his fourth book and his fifth book is nearing completion.
