Westerns : aspects of a movie genre by Philip French( Book )

52 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Westerns is the classic account of the emergence, growth and flowering of one of the most perennially popular film genres. When it was first published thirty years ago it was welcomed by reviewers in Europe and the United States as a major work. In this new edition, fully revised and updated, with a new introduction, both movie buffs and general readers have the opportunity to engage again with one of the sharpest film critics of our time. The book focuses on the political, historical and cultural forces that shaped the western, dealing especially with the thirty years after World War II. It considers the treatment of Indians and Blacks, women and children, the role of violence, landscape and pokerplaying, and it advances the theory that most westerns of those years fit into four principal categories that reflect the styles and ideologies of four leading politicians of the era: John F. Kennedy, Barry Goldwater, Lyndon Johnson and William Buckley. Since the book was first revised in 1977, there has been, as the author predicted there would be, a steady decline in the number of westerns made for TV and the cinema, but the genre remains highly influential and reflects the social and psychological currents in American life. In the 1990s Academy Awards for best movie went to Kevin Costner's Dances with Wolves and Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, the first time that westerns were so honoured since Cimarron won an Oscar in 1930. French takes in these and other films, such as Heaven's Gate, the costly failure that brought down the studio that produced it, and brings the story of the western into the twenty-first century as the genre that was renewed in Cold Mountain, Open Range, Hidalgo and The Alamo

The movie moguls; an informal history of the Hollywood tycoons by Philip French( Book )

22 editions published between 1969 and 1995 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1890s the cinema was a peepshow novelty in penny arcades. Thirty years later it was America's fourth largest industry, with its production center in Hollywood. This vast new business was dominated by eight major corporations, which not only made the movies but distributed and exhibited them in their own chains of movie theaters across the nation and around the globe. And these films helped shape the tastes and behavior of several generations the world over. For the most part, movie companies were created by European immigrants who arrived penniless in the United States during the last two decades of the nineteenth century--men such as Louis B. Mayer, Samuel Goldwyn, Adolph Zukor, William Fox, the Warner Brothers. The Movie Moguls looks at the backgrounds, characters, and careers of these extraordinary men."--Jacket
