Drawing on a wide variety of Hollywood and other examples, this impressive group of contributors considers a wide range of film adaptations, remakes and fan productions from various industrial, textual and critical perspectives. Their case studies discuss new versions of popular texts such as The Manchurian Candidate, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Stepford Wives. They provide new perspectives on the unlimited cultural production of classics like The Wizard of Oz, Wuthering Heights and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and they analyze the groundbreaking work of fan appropriations, including Batman and Spiderman fanvids, and fanfic trailer revisions for The Shining and television's The Adventures of Merlin." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index; Tertiary/Undergraduate, Postgraduate ISBN: 9781137263346 Contents: -- list of illustrations -- acknowledgments -- notes on contributors -- introduction: remake,remodel / Kathleen Loock and Constantine Verevis -- pt.

At last, in Growing up in Hollwood, Robert Parrish has produced a picture of Hollywood which is consistently well-observed, intelligent, evocative and, best of all, very, very funny. Robert Parrish, a child actor in the 1920's (in Chaplin's City Lights he was one of the two pea-shooting news boys), served his apprenticeship both in front of the camreas as an extra, and in the cutting rooms under famous directors in 1950. This book is a series of lively, skillfully told anecdotes of working in motion pictures in the golden days between the coming of talkies and the spread of television. In a series of fascinating close-ups we are shown, for instance, Charlie Chaplin rehearsing a scene from City Lights, Cecil B. de Mille bullying his cast of thousands, Raoul Walsh getting the best out of John Wayne, Ian Keith and an assortment of quadrupeds in The Big Trail, and John Ford cracking his whip on and off the set. What makes these memories so compelling is the charm and vivacity, the clear-sighted innocence of the author (a rare gift in hollywood) and his remarkable ability to bring scenes and dialogue to life so that the reader is constantly ready for more.

Here are some of the stimulating - and occasionally surprising - answers to that question. This book is a follow-up to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, which ended in 1929, but it can be read on its own. [This book] covers novels and films from the 1930s to the 1970s, from Erskine Caldwell's Tobacco Road to James Dickey's Deliverance. In between, many film translations of notable novels are scrutinized - works by such authors as Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, McCullers, Nabokov, Updike, Kesey, and Vonnegut [...] Style, characterisation, theme, and ideology come under review. And we get behind-the-scenes insights into the actual filming of some celebrated novels. Of special value to scholars and students of film: extended filmographies by both author and film title of adaptations of American novels published between 1930 and 1975. In addition, there is a bibliography covering the same period, plus complete rental information on the films themselves." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Filmography: p. 349-428; Bibliography: p. 429-443; Sequel/companion to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, also in the Collection ISBN: 0804426821 : $14.50. 0804466491 pbk. : $6.95 LON: 78004373; 1250638 More info
