Hall, 1939); ANTS IN HIS PANTS (AT, William Freshman, 1939) Summary: Comedy has been a perpetual part of Australian film, in which humour reflects Australia's adaptation in times of crisis, social change and technological advances. This was never more so than in the 1930s, when Australia produced more comedy feature films than in any other decade before 1970. These films of the 1930s embraced the new technology of sound, made local vaudeville performers into movie stars, offered escape from the Depression and revealed a diverse and international Australia. In these films, Australia moved further from Empire and the bush, forged the Digger legend, responded to cultural diversity and viewed itself as a modern, urban nation. Influenced by Hollywood, Australian comedies of the 1930s adapted international styles to local points of view. Based on research at the National Film and Sound Archive, Lesley Speed's book provides new insight into Australian comedy films of the 1930s and the extraordinary period of social change in which they were produced.

Giorgio Mangiamele : cinematographer of the Italian migrant experience / by Raffaele Lampugnani

AUSTRALIA; IMMIGRATION IN FILMS AND TELEVISION; MULTICULTURALISM AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; MIGRATION; HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; MANGIAMELE, GIORGIO; CONTRATTO, IL (AT, Giorgio Mangiamele, 1953) Summary: "Giorgio Mangiamele is without doubt one of the most interesting and artistically gifted filmmakers in contemporary Australian cinema, even though his ideas and talent were often hampered in a technical sense by material and financial circumstances; he is absolutely crucial as representative of the post-war Italian migration experience in Australia. His oeuvre has received considerable critical attention recently but a serious, organic, critical analysis has been hampered by misconceptions about his marginal position with respect to mainstream production and the typcasting of the author as a "migrant" cinematographer. This study has sought to bridge the prejudical divide between the diasporic context and the artistic value, talent and intentions of the filmmaker. Underpinning this argument with Deleuze and Guattari's theoretical framework of "minor" literatures, it is suggest that Mangiamele's diasporic cinematic production did have an influence on mainstream cinema and society, in the sense that "minor no longer designates specific literatures but the revolutionary conditions for every literature within the heart of what is called great (or established) literature" (Kafka, 18). In order to elucidate Mangiamele's acuity, and cinematographic talent and human observational skills, a socio-historical and cultural framing for his oeuvre is provided confirming the author's crucial importance for the post-war period, his highly individual style and work imbued with ethical and moral principles as well as compassion and humanistic concerns." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 9781921421631 Contents: -- main abbreviations -- introduction -- 1. migrant bricoleur or influental pioneer? The Deleuzian theory of 'minor literature' as a critical tool to frame Giorgio Mangiamele's cinematic production -- 2. migrant bricoleur, neorealist imitator, scholar, or gifted artist? who is really behind (or in front of) the camera? -- 3. the mise-en-scene of history and of diasporic reality in Mangiamele's first film, Il contratto -- 4. Mangiamele, cinematographer of enduring perceptions of southern Italian migrant backwardness -- 5. constructing a filmic discourse on Italian canonical intertextual references -- 6. a 'nosographic' reading of Mangiamele's ambivalent emotional and psychological relationship with host society, depicting states and feelings of dislocation and banishment -- 7. observing and depicting human behaviour to restore dignity in society: the social mise e scene and social performance in Mangiamele's early films -- conclusion -- bibliography -- filmography -- appendix -- More info

PubDate: 2005 PhysDes: 330 p. ; 25 cm Subject: McGOWAN, JOHN PATERSON; HISTORY AND THE CINEMA. AUSTRALIA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. SILENT PERIOD; ACTORS. AUSTRALIA Summary: J.P. McGowan (1880-1952) was one of Hollywood’s most prolific pioneers: actor, director, screenwriter, producer and industrial advocate for the motion picture industry. Known as the “Railroad Man” for his specialization in action movies involving railroads, he made common the image of the terrified beauty tied to a track – his first wife was Helen Holmes, of his iconic silent series The Hazards of Helen. This work, the first biography of the Australian-born adventurer, covers a screen career spanning 30 years and over 600 productions from the dawn of the silent era. It chronicles his entire life and places him within the context of the times in which he lived and worked. Previously unknown details are unearthed on his family background and early life, as well as his participation in the Boer War and his move to the United States. The work concludes with a comprehensive filmography of McGowan’s work. [Taken from back cover]. ISBN: 0786419946 More info

Since the early days of Australian film production, movies on Kelly were appearing at regular intervals, and certainly, they are a significant addition to cinema studies and cultural history. Yet, beyond the movies, this thesis discusses Kelly's nineteenth century cultural industry, which played a significant role in commodifying Ned as an important figure of popular entertainment. Indeed, the performance customs and social practices established during Kelly's historic Outbreak of 1878-1880 were taken into the moving pictures in the twentieth century. Kelly's representation though has not been a fixed artefact, and by examining his twentieth and twenty-first century cinema representation, this thesis explores how the origins of his popular image have continued in popular culture. With this thesis adding to the growing field of research on celluloid bandits, it demonstrates the importance of understanding how the Kelly films shift beyond the normal parameters of cinema studies and delve into broader areas of cultural history. As it argues, the Kelly movies are significantly influenced by popular history as well as Kelly's tradition of visual imagery, folk songs and literature.
