Film Study in Higher Education.
Stewart, David C., Ed.
This resource book on the place of film study today is designed to assist in the planning of college courses in the history, criticism, and appreciation of motion pictures. Representative course descriptions and appraisals are given by (1) Jack C. Ellis, who describes a two-part course in film aesthetics and types of films, (2) Edward Fischer, who discusses his course in film criticism, (3) Arthur Knight, whose course in film history provides background in the tradition of films and film making, (4) Hugh Gray, who discusses the analysis and comparative study of the art of film, and (5) George Stoney, who sees the function of film teaching as breaking word barriers and giving visual training. Comments on the place of film study in education are offered by John E. Burchard, Pauline Kael, and Colin Young who also suggests ways to create an American Film Institute. Lists of films, film distributors, professional associations, archives, libraries, and film societies; tables of film courses offered at the major colleges and universities; and a selected bibliography of books, reviews, and periodicals are included.
