The cinema as art / Ralph Stephenson & J. R. Debrix
Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1969.
Call No: 63 STE Author: Stephenson, Ralph; Debrix, J. R. CorpAuthor: Penguin Edition: Revised edition, reprint Place: Harmondsworth Publisher: Penguin PubDate: 1969 PhysDes: 270 p.,  p. of plates ; 18 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; ART AND THE CINEMA; ART CINEMA; EDITING; CINEMATOGRAPHY; SOUND; COSTUMES; MAKE-UP; COLORIZATION; LIGHTING Summary: “The cinema as art”, to those brought up on the “movie show and bubblegum” image, must look like a pretentious contradiction in terms. As this book demonstrates, however, the cinema stands for an art form which is almost unique in immediacy and scope. The authors explain, with over 300 examples taken from films of every country and period, the stages by which a director isolates what is mentally and emotionally significant in a situation. The reader is shown, from the inside, how the director may achieve this end by exploiting any or all of the cinematic techniques from script-planning to final editing, from camera movement to costume from sound to soft-focus.

INDIA; STARS. INDIA Summary: The Hindi film industry, among the most prolific in the world, has delighted audiences for decades with its colourful, exquisite and sometimes startling costumes. But are costumes more than just a source of pleasure? This book, the first in-depth exploration of Hindi film costume, contends that they are a unique source of knowledge about issues ranging from Indian taste and fashion to questions of identity, gender and work. Anthropological and film studies approaches combine to analyze costume as the outcome of production processes and as a cinematic device for conveying meaning. Chapters lead from the places where costume is planned and executed to explorations of characterization, the actor body, spectacles of fashion, to the imagining of historical or fantasy worlds through dress, to the power of stardom to launch clothing styles into the public domain. As well as charting the course of film costume as it parallels important trends in cultural history, the book considers the future of Hindi film costume, in the context of new strains of filmmaking that stress unvarnished realism.
