Description: Jack Cardiff was lauded by the Hollywood greats he photographed films for -- John Huston, Sophia Loren, Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe -- and described by Michael Powell as "A genius, a daydreamer, a baby. He should have been a painter instead of being the best colour cameraman in the world." Yet he has remained largely unknown to the general public until now. "Cameraman" celebrates the life and work of this unique figure in British and international cinema, a man whose career spans an incredible nine decades of cinema history. "Legend" is a word all too frequently used in Hollywood, yet Jack Cardiff's story surely proves him worthy of that title.
