The Film Idea.
Solomon, Stanley J.
The purpose of this book is to examine the nature of the narrative film in regard to those characteristics that distinguish this art form from the other narrative arts. Elements of the film medium are examined for their possibilities for cinematic expressiveness. The major procedures for shaping and organizing a cinematic narrative are discussed, mainly in terms of the historical development of the art form. The theoretical and esthetic implications of various elements of films are also dealt with. (JK)
