Light and Shadows: A History of Motion Pictures.
Bohn, Thomas W.; Stromgren, Richard L.
This book presents a history of the experiences (cultural, economic, and political) which influenced artistic expression in film and those which influenced the advancement of the film industry (technological, managerial, and distribution). The book is divided into three parts. Part one presents the beginnings of film and continues through the technological improvements and artistic development that began the film industry; part two discusses the problems, frustrations, and inspirations which came from the added dimension of sound; and part three focuses on an international renaissance, the simultaneous arrival of television, a crucial court decision, political pressures, and the new realism which began after World War II. Each of the three sections contains a concluding chapter which serves as an overview of the period. A selected bibliography and name, film, and general indexes conclude the book. (JM)
