Cinema and modernity / John Orr
Cambridge, UK: Polity Press, 1993.
Call No: 62 ORR Author: Orr, John Source: UK Place: Cambridge, UK Publisher: Polity Press PubDate: 1993 PhysDes: ix, 224 pages,  pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm Subject: THEORY; NOUVELLE VAGUE; FILM NOIR; AUTOMOBILES IN FILMS Summary: "This book discusses the complex relation between modernity and cinema drawing particularly upon the European and American cinema during the second half of the twentieth century. In this period, the author argues, the terms 'modernist' and 'postmodern' are both inappropriate to the cinema's critical vision of modernity. Instead there emerges a neo-modern movement which subverts American melodrama and supplants Italian neo-realism, yet also echoes the earlier modernisms of Dreyer, Eisenstein, Bunuel and Fritz Lang." - taken from back cover.

George Lucas was a typical Californian child of no great promise - he read comic books and watched TV; no one guessed that his imagination would inspire millions of people. Dale Pollock brilliantly tells the story of Lucas's legendary days at USCinema and his tangles with Francis Coppola and Universal Pictures. Pollock was one of the few reporters allowed on the set of RETURN OF THE JEDI, and he takes us behind the scenes of Lucas's movies. We find out how Artoo-Detoo got his name, how the Force came to be, and many other surprising revelations. Complete with photographs from Lucas's private collection, SKYWALKING is a powerful biography about a man who is setting the future course of film for years to come."
