"There is in the nature of every man, I firmly believe, a longing to see and know the strange places of the world. Life imprisons us all in its coil of circumstance, and the dreams of romance that color boyhood are forgotten, but they do not die. They stir at the sight of a white-sailed ship beating out to the wide sea; the smell of tarred rope on a blackened wharf, or the touch of the cool little breeze that rises when the stars come out will waken them again. Somewhere over the rim of the world lies romance, and every heart yearns to go and find it."

Some of the most outstanding films produced by M-G-M during the late 1920s and 1930s were directed by the colorful W. S. ("Woody") Van Dyke: The Thin Man (and its first sequels), Trader Horn, San Francisco, Rose-Marie, Tarzan, the Ape Man, Marie Antoinette, and White Shadows in the South Seas, among many others. On White Shadows Van Dyke spent four months in 1927-1928 filming in Tahiti, first in collaboration with the noted documentarian Robert Flaherty and then as the sole director. During this period he kept a journal, which he dispatched on the monthly mail boat to the U.S. The journal has never been published and possibly never seen by anyone except its writer and the recipient in Hollywood until recently, when it was discovered in an old steamer trunk. White Shadows in the South Seas was a pioneering undertaking for a major studio at that time. Sending a fairly large company to a remote and relatively primitive area to film a fictional film with Hollywood actors interspersed with the local inhabitants was most unusual, if not unique. And there were the risks in having two directors with entirely different approaches at the helm of one film. This revealing journal is a personalized narrative of what can happen during a long and faraway location junket and is fraught with internal disputes, frictions, fractions, edginess, and the strain of making a film under very trying conditions and circumstances. Finally, there is the portrait of the complex and somewhat paradoxical Van Dyke in his own words telling of the demons afflicting his spirit.

In the autumn of 1924, just before André Breton published the Manifeste du surréalisme, two young men met in Paris for the first time. Georges Bataille, 27, starting work at the Bibliothèque Nationa≤ Michel Leiris, 23, beginning his studies in ethnology. Within a few months they were both members of the Surrealist group, although their adherence to Surrealism (unlike their affinities with it) would not last long: in 1930 they were among the signatories of 'Un cadavre,' the famous tract against Breton, the 'Machiavelli of Montmartre,' as Leiris put it. But their friendship would endure for more than 30 years, and their correspondence, assembled here for the first time in English, would continue until the death of Bataille in 1962. Including a number of short essays by each of them on aspects of the other's work, and excerpts on Bataille from Leiris' diaries, this collection of their correspondence throws new light on two of Surrealism's most radical dissidents.
