140. White Shadows by Elwy Yost
TV talk show host and film historian, Jack Parris, and his German research partner Georg, have been obsessed with unravelling the myth of actor and film producer who is known by at least 18 pseudonyms including Philip Kurzon. Kurzon's magnum opus is a film of unprecedented length, 43 reels and 8 hours 10 minutes, that has only been viewed in public. Add in a romance, Nazi and resistance operations, a primeval tropical forest and you've got a page turning plot.
