Beginning with a penetrating study of five cornfield sequences - including The Wizard of Oz, Arizona Dream, and Signs - Murray Pomerance journeys through a vast array of cinematic moments, technical methods, and laborious collaborations from the 1930s to the 200s to show how the viewer's experience of "reality" is put in context, challenged, and wilfully engaged. Four meditations deal with "reality effects" from different philosophical and technical angles. "Vivid Rivals" assesses active participation and critical judgement in seeing effects with works such as Defiance, Cloverfield, Knowing, and Thelma & Louise. "The Two of Us" considers double placement and doubled experience with films such as The Prestige, Niagara and A Stolen Life. "Being There" discusses cinematic performance and the problems of believability, highlighting such films as Gran Torino, The Manchurian Candidate, In Harm's Way, and other films. "Fairy Land" explores the art of scenic backing, focusing on the fictional world of Brigadoon, which borrows from both hard-edged realism and evocative landscape painting." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9780813560588 More info

Mr Elliot shows how haphazard the process of programme production is and how much it is constrained by the social and organisational framework in which it takes place. Of absorbing interest to all sociologists and students of the mass media as well as the general public, this book raises the challenging question of whether it is inevitable that television should be a reflective medium, or whether it can be a vehicle for the communication of new ideas and experiences.

AUSTRALIA; WAR ON TV; BURROWES, GEOFF; DIXON, JOHN; MILLER, GEORGE; ANZACS [TV] (AT, Pino Amenta, John Dixon & George Miller, 1985) Summary: "They were the tallest soldiers of any army; the only all-volunteer fighting force and the best paid of all the troops in the Great War. Yet in 1914 when they marched away, they were considered a rag-tag lot, probably too ill-disciplined to be useful in war. The proud but tragic fiasco of Gallipoli changed that perception [...] Now the Great War is the backdrop of ANZACS, one of the most dramatic and important series ever made for Australian television. In five parts the ANZACS brings to life forgotten aspects of an immense conflict, and the men - and women too - who were swept up or overtaken by it. Here, vividly illustrated in text and in pictures, is an account of how that series was made; the powerful and moving stories told; the stars who portray the dignity, bravery and poignancy of yesterday's heroes."--BOOK BLURB Notes: "The major 9 network television series (produced by Geoff Burrowes and John Dixon)'--Cover ISBN: 000636893X Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 More info

Merchants of Menace: The Business of Horror Cinema responds to a major void in film history by shedding much-needed new light on the economic dimensions of one of the world's most enduring audiovisual forms. Given horror cuts across budgetary categories, industry sectors, national film cultures, and media, Merchants of Menace also promises to expand understandings of the economics of cinema generally. Covering 1930-present, this groundbreaking collection boasts fourteen original chapters from world-leading experts taking as their focus such diverse topics as early zombie pictures, post-WWII chillers, Civil Rights-Era marketing, Hollywood literary adaptations, Australian exploitation, "torture-porn" Auteurs, and twenty-first-century remakes." - Publisher's Website Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index; Also issued online ISBN: 9781623564209 Contents: -- Production lines, trends, and cycles.

This one is neither. In his powerful, angry and passionate book, Kirk Douglas tells the story of his life in his own words, holding back nothing. Born Issur Danielovitch Demsky, the son of an illiterate immigrant Russian-Jewish ragman, in Amsterdam, New York, Douglas paints a searing and unforgettable picture of an almost Dickensian childhood of brutal poverty - the background that has dominated his life as an actor, father and man, fuelling the great creative anger that has added such depth to his performances. With profound and moving insight, he shows how the determination to overcome that childhood and succeed on his own terms led him to take on roles that most stars of his magnitude would never have risked - Van Gogh, in LUST FOR LIFE; Spartacus the slave; the courageous, conscience-stricken Colonel Dax, in PATHS OF GLORY; the agonized boxer Midge, in CHAMPION, to name only a few - and to fight the studios and the Hollywood establishment for the right to control and produce his own movies, long before it was common practice for stars to do so."
