Movies in America.
Kuhns, William
Two main themes of motion picture development in America are presented in this comprehensive historical guide to movies. The sophistication and broadening of the movies as an art form and the complex relationships between a period and the movies of that period are fully explored. Particular emphasis has been placed on the role of the director. Though the text does not encompass all movies, it does provide a coherently arranged historical summary that is intended to serve as a main text for a college level course in film. The author explores the personalities of such movie greats as Chaplin, Disney, Ford, and Capra and analyzes the trends of the development of the industry. The resource guide, "Teaching in the Dark" (EM 010 854), should be used with this text. (MC)
