US; CRITICISM; FILM; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. USA; LIBRARY OF CONGRESS; USA Summary: "America's Film Legacy is a guide to the most significant films ever made in the United States. Unlike opinionated "Top 100" and arbitrary "Best of" lists, these are the real thing: groundbreaking films that make up the backbone of American cinema. Some are well-known, such as Citizen Kane, Casablanca, The Godfather, and Toy Story. Others are more obscure - Blacksmithing Scene, Mom and Dad, Chulas Fronteras, and Free Radicals. Daniel Eagan's beautifully written and authoritative book is for anyone who loves American movies and who wants to learn more about them.
Each of the 500 titles in the National Film Registry is covered in a detailed essay that includes cast, credits, and major awards, as well as screening information. With over 100 illustrations and frame enlargements.

USA; FILM CULTURE; GODARD, JEAN-LUC; FARBER, MANNY; KISS ME DEADLY (US, Robert Aldrich, 1955) Summary: A study on pulp movies (such as Kiss me Deadly, Shock Corridor, Fixed Bayonets!, I Walked with a Zombie, The Lineup, Terror in a Texas Town, Ride Lonesome) impacted upon and influenced the critics, cinephiles, and filmmakers of the day (people such as Jean-Luc Godard, Manny Farber, Lawerence Alloway, Paulene Kael). The critics 'championed the cause of these movies and incited the cultural guardians of the day by attacking a rigorously policed canon of tasteful, rareified, and ossified art objects.
Against the legitimate and in the defense of the illegitimate, in an insolent and unruly manner, these critics agitated for the recognition of lurid sensational crime stories. War pictures, fast-paced Westerns, thillers, and gangster melodramas were claimed as examples of the true, the real, and the authentic in contemporary culture - the foundation upon which modern film studies sits.' - taken from Back Cover ISBN: 9780813550626 Contents: Introduction : yours till the boys come home -- Position papers : in defense of pulp movies -- A genealogy of pulp : Black mask to Mickey Spillane -- A world of small insanities : the critical reception of Kiss me deadly -- American primitive : Samuel Fuller's pulp politics -- Authenticating pulp : Jim Thompson adaptations and neo-noir -- Conclusion : hiding out in cinemas More info
