Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Frankel covers more than filmmaking nuts and bolts in this brilliantly constructed book. He details the story of Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped by Comanches in 1836 and might – or might not – have inspired novelist Alan LeMay to write his novel, which became the movie that wasn’t as revered back in 1956 as it is today.
