Abstract:

Born among clowns: A history of the news camera from 1894 to 1919. Follows the development of the newsreel from the invention of motion pictures by the Lumiere brothers and its beginnings in Vaudeville to its becoming an important means of bringing the news of the world to the public, with coverage of important events such as the coronation of Czar Nicholas II, the Spanish American War, the Boer War and the First World War. Shows the the development of such trends as government censorship, news as propaganda, as well as the importance of business interests. Shows how many of the most popular and effective new reels of the time were infact fictional creations.

Eyes of the world: A history of the news camera from 1919 to 1945. Shows how Hollywood took over motion picture news and produced newsreels for entertainment purposes only. The images of the depression with mass unemployment and social and political unrest were kept off movie screens - with just a few exceptions. Shows how the importance of newsreels as propaganda emerged first in Germany but spread to the United States and Canada with the outbreak of the war. Explains the impact of newsreel camermen reporting.
