For biographer Michael Holroyd, playwright George Bernard Shaw is practically an alter ego. Using archival footage and Holroyd's painstaking detective work, this intriguing program questions the extent to which Shaw's life and art fed upon each other, addressing issues including the effects of the triangle between his father, his mother, and Vandeleur Lee on his plays, as seen in Misalliance and Pygmalion. A second theme deals with the reciprocal relationship between biographer and subject. To what extent has Holroyd's point of view shaped audience perception? And how much has the study of Shaw affected Holroyd?
Publisher: New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2005], c1988
