What kind of things did you do in high school that affected you for the rest of your life?

For Mark Griffin, watching a Vincente Minnelli movie, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, gave him both a career?and an obsession. Oh, and a new book, too: A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli.

Griffin, who writes film reviews for the Boston Globe, MovieMaker and Genre, has written and compiled and exhaustive biography and filmography of the late director who was known as much for films such as Meet Me in St. Louis, An American in Paris and Gigi as for marrying Judy Garland and fathering Liza Minnelli.

Minnelli was also the subject of much innuendo and rumor, during his lifetime and since, about his sexual orientation.

Hear it now!MARK GRIFFIN AUDIO EXCERPT: "Vincente Minnelli liked to slip a lot of subliminal elements into his films. The whole aspect of his sexuality, which had been long rumored about, was definitely something I wanted to explore, because it infuses the films in an important way."
