How To Read a Movie.
Lambert, Robert G.
The Teachers Guide to Media & Methods, v4 n1 p32-4 Sep 1966
By concentrating on critical analyses of motion pictures, English teachers at all levels can instruct their classes in the intelligent viewing of screen presentations. Teachers should emphasiz e that the film maker uses the powerful techniques of camera placement and the "rhythm of cutting" to determine the impact of the movie; that the image, not the word, is all important; and that films have similarities to traditional literature (e.g., the film simile and sound or visual symbolism). Films like "The Great Adventure,""The Miracle Worker," or "On the Waterfront" can be used as the basis for writing assignments on the use of film techniques. (JS)
