Buster Keaton remembered by Eleanor Keaton( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his legendary stone face and physical gags, Buster Keaton was a genius of silent-film comedy. Decades after their release, his movies remain unsurpassed marvels of comic invention and mechanical timing. In Buster Keaton remembered, an illustrated survey of Keaton's career, Eleanor Keaton, his wife of 26 years, and film historian Jeffrey Vance provide a personal account of this icon of American cinema. Drawing on professional papers, screenplays, studio records, and scrapbooks, the authors trace Keaton's beginnings in vaudeville, where he perfected his gags; his first silent shorts with Roscoe Arbuckle; the brilliant features he conceived, directed, produced, and performed in; and his later sound films for M-G-M and others. Fresh prints of classic film stills and never-before-published photos from the Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, together with a lively, anecdotal text, offer a behind-the-scenes look at how Keaton came up with his hilarious ideas, choreographed his elaborate stunts, and crafted his films
Casting a shadow : creating the Alfred Hitchcock film by Corinne Granof( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Director Alfred Hitchcock carefully cultivated his reputation as the solitary genius behind his films. In reality Hitchcock was a deeply collaborative artist, working intensely with actors, producers, cinematographers, screenwriters, editors, and production designers to create what the public knew as "an Alfred Hitchcock picture." This illustrated book presents multiple perspectives on Hitchcock as artist and provides a rare view into the working documents - sketches, production and costume designs, drawings, storyboards, and camera-angle diagrams - that helped shape his cinematic style." "With an introduction by Will Schmenner and four original essays from leading film scholars, this volume offers insight into Hitchcock's work and working methods. Scott Curtis examines Hitchcock's cinematic skills through a detailed categorization of the drawings from his productions. Tom Gunning explores Hitchcock the artist by looking at his use of the frame and the art of painting within his movies. Bill Krohn's close reading of I Confess reveals some of the thematic and ideological concerns that occupied Hitchcock. Jan Olsson addresses the strategies Hitchcock used to control his publicity. A combination of images and text, Casting a Shadow reconsiders director Alfred Hitchcock as the shepherd of a collective vision that shaped 20th-century art with some of the most memorable movies of our time."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Latin America to Hollywood: Latino Film Culture in Los Angeles 1967-2017 explores the intersections, inspirations, and creative intentions of a wide-ranging group of Latino and Latin American filmmakers through the gathering, and close reading, of their oral histories, by an acclaimed group of scholars and writers. From the earliest days of Hollywood, through the transition to sound and the expansion of national cinemas, this volume examines such themes as the cinematic influences of Cinema Novo and the evolution of the Chicano Film Movement, the educational impact of Latino-made films, visions of "Hollywood" by Latin American directors, the ever-evolving role of women in the profession, the impact and limitations of film festival exposure, and what the future may hold for emerging filmmakers from the region
