In conclusion, I suppose what remained absolutely thrilling for me as I proofread and edited the text was the opportunity to read new background information about a film I have loved for so many years and to savour the great photographs – taken by stills photographers Bud Fraker and Mal Bulloch – which accompany the text. But it is also humbling to consider the amount of sheer hard work and ferreting out of information that has gone on behind-the-scenes in order for us all to experience that. We owe the guys who have produced such fine work a huge vote of thanks for their efforts. Would anyone like to second that? (Gordon Minto – October 2013)
