Lillian Ross worked at The New Yorker for more than half a century, and might be described not only as an outstanding practitioner of modern long-form journalism but also as one of its inventors. ‘Picture’ is her most celebrated piece of reportage, a closely-observed and completely absorbing story of how studio politics and misguided commercialism transforms director John Huston’s ‘The Red Badge of Courage’ from a promising movie into an all-around disaster.
