Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

Avant-garde. experimental cinema, 1922-1954( Visual )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before home video there flourished an alternative cinema culture on college campuses and around art theaters, where foreign film fare was often accompanied by a short subject. As reliable 16mm film equipment became available to non-professionals, artists independent of film centers began experimenting with cinema. Serious film societies sprang up in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, holding semi-private screenings of non-commercial artistic films. For years, these pictures have been exhibited only in infrequent museum screenings, if at all. This collection is of mainly American pictures, principally one-man artistic endeavors made from little more than an artist's desire to express feelings with a camera

The best of jazz & blues( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Musicals shorts, produced to merely fill out the film program, have in many cases acquired more value than the features they once supported. Filmed at the Paramount Studios in Astoria, Queens, these films offer unparalleled opportunities to see and hear great artists in action -- and sometimes present surprisingly gutsy subject matter via truly innovative film technique."--Container
La chute de la maison Usher by Jean Epstein( Visual )

3 editions published in 2001 in French and English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an aristocratic English family the young lord finds to his horror, while painting his wife's portrait, that as the work progresses life drains from his lady. In this poetic horror film, called by some the most outstanding achievement of this genre, an absolute mastery of editing and rhythm is employed with lighting and Gothic sets combining to impart anunearthly sense of mystery
Robert Benchley : and the knights of the Algonquin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American humorist and satirist Robert Benchley began as a writer, but when Hollywood came calling, he adapted some of his most amusing pieces for film. In these wry filmic explorations of the headaches of everyday married life, and of the common man overmatched by seemingly mundane tasks, Benchley is often spoofing himself and the sophisticated, witty literati who made up the legendary Algonquin round table. The collection features another member of that group, Alexander Woollcott, as a fussy nightclub patron, and Donald Ogden Stewart, playwright and screenwriter, as a serious lecturer on fantastical, farcical subjects. This collection pays homage to the spirit that animated the New York literary scene in the 1920s and '30s, as preserved by Hollywood for America's enjoyment
