Cocteau later published Difficulty of Being, a loose collection of autobiographical observations. Jean Cocteau died on October 11, 1963, at the age of 74. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Críticas

Cocteau presents a poetic and personal journey of making his fantasy set in reality with Beauty and the Beast. Each entry shows how the director and artist put themselves into the film, even if they are not presented in the finished picture, through his ailments and dedication to producing cinematic perfection and magic.
