Joseph McBride

Recommended Posts

I was born in Milwaukee in 1947 and attended Marquette University High School and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I was a reporter for The Wisconsin State Journal before moving to California in 1973 and was a film critic, reporter, and columnist for Daily Variety in Hollywood for many years. My screenwriting credits include co-writing Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979).

I am the author of fifteen books, including Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success (1992), Steven Spielberg: A Biography (1997), Searching for John Ford (2001) and What Ever Happened to Orson Welles?: A Portrait of an Independent Career (2006).

I have written for Life, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Book Review, The Los Angeles Times Magazine and The Nation. I live in Berkeley and I am a professor at San Francisco State University.

My latest book is Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit.
