The careers of many notable actors, directors and oter film-makers were launched in these unpretentious but often very entertaining films that ran for roughly an hour before the cinema 'interval'. Steve Chibnall and Brian McFarlane's carefully researched study traces the storyof 'B' film production in Britain, from World War 2 to the late 1960s, providing a fresh perspective on the 'B' movie phenomenon , both as artefact and as industry product, as well as highlighting what such films tell us about the changing times in which they were made." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781844573196 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- foreword -- preface -- 1.

Hoberman delivers a brilliant and witty look at the decade when politics and pop culture became one. This was the era of the Missile Gap and the Space Race, the Black and Sexual Revolutions, the Vietnam War and Watergate - as well as the tele-saturation of the American market and the advent of Pop art. In "elegant, epigrammatic prose" (A.O Scott), Hoberman moves from the political histories of movies to the theater of wars, national political campaigns, and pop-culture events. With entertaining reinterpretations of key Hollywood movies such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Wild Bunch, and Shampoo, and meditations on personages ranging from John Wayne and Patty Hearst to Jane Fonda, Ronald Reagan, and Che Guevara.

USA; TWENTIETH CENTURY-FOX; ZANUCK, DARRYL F.; ZANUCK, RICHARD; CLEOPATRA (US, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1963) Summary: "A powerful man and his determined son, an internationally famous dream factory where money is no object, and a battle between egos staged on the most lavish playgrounds in the world. This is the inside story of a family torn from within by greed, envy and a blind need to control. Movie mogul Darryl F. Zanuck believed that the kingdom he had built - 20th Century Fox - was impregnable to outside conquest. Little did he dream that the power who would eventually dethrone him in one of the nastiest battles in Hollywood history would be none other than his own son, Richard Zanuck. In the best Hollywood tradition, this drama was played out on a larger than life scale against a glamorous international setting. There is a cast of supporting players that formed a Zanuck coterie - from their innumerable "yes men" to the old man's many mistresses [...] THE FOX THAT GOT AWAY is filled with high drama. It is a story that will not be soon forgotten, and a look at the workings of an industry that never fails to fascinate."

The glorious modernity of Kong Ngee
Hong Kong: Hong Kong Film Archive, 2006.
Call No: 71(512.317) GLO CorpAuthor: Hong Kong Film Archive Source: HK Place: Hong Kong Publisher: Hong Kong Film Archive PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: 300 p. ; 27 cm. Subject: HONG KONG; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1950's; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1960's; STUDIOS, FILM; GENRES; SINGAPORE; MALAYSIA Summary: What made [Hong Kong studio] Kong Ngee productions fascinating was its urban touch. The company was initially formed through the tutelage of The Union Film Enterprise Limited veterans, who acted as mentors for a new generation of actors, in works like the company’s founding film The Rouge Tigress (1955), Mother’s Boy Parts One and Two (1956), Blood is Thicker (1956) etc. The company then proceeded to make films on location in Malaysia and Singapore, which led to the ‘Nanyang Trilogy’ – Blood Stains the Valley of Love (1957), China Wife (1957), Moon over Malaya (1957). These films turned newcomers Patrick Tse, Nam Hung and Kar Ling into stars, and gradually fashioned a studio style that set Kong Ngee apart from other Cantonese productions of the time. Kong Ngee made its name with modern romance, both tragic and comic. Reviewing the history of Kong Ngee, from its smooth beginning to its disappointing end, the company started out in the footsteps of the Union tradition but effortlessly moved on from the cultural milieu of the May Fourth Movement to cultivate a modern urban bourgeois sensibility. Regrettably, towards the end of the 1960s, it was thrown off course by the restless pulse of that era and has since fallen by the wayside. To this day, we have not been able to revive this urban cosmopolitan drama that was once part of Hong Kong cinema. Writers in this volume have put together their efforts for a multifaceted study on Kong Ngee, encompassing subjects from the star image to urban media, from genre development to literary adaptation, alongside comparisons between creative talents and individual companies. Last but not least the complex relations between Hong Kong cinema and its Singapore/Malaysian financiers. [Abridged from introduction]. ISBN: 9628050389 More info

It is, arguably, an image that has remained unchanged in the mind's eye of many exploitation film fans and academics alike. Whether in the pages of fanzines or scholarly works, it is often recounted how, should one have walked down this street between the 1960s and the 1980s, one would have undergone a kaleidoscopic encounter with an array of disparate “exploitation” films from all over the world that were being offered cheaply to urbanites by a swathe of vibrant movie theatres.
The contributors to Grindhouse: Cultural Exchange on 42nd Street, and Beyond consider “grindhouse cinema” from a variety of cultural and methodological positions. Some seek to deconstruct the etymology of “grindhouse” itself, add flesh to the bones of its cadaverous history, or examine the term's contemporary relevance in the context of both media production and consumerism. Others offer new inroads into hitherto unexamined examples of exploitation film history, presenting snapshots of cultural moments that many of us thought we already understood." -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781628927498 Contents: -- Table of Contents -- Acknowledgments -- Introduction: 42nd Street, and Beyond -- Austin Fisher and Johnny Walker -- Chapter 1 -- Grinding out the Grindhouse: Exploitation, Myth and Memory / Glenn Ward -- Chapter 2 -- Where Did We Come In?: The Economics of Unruly Audiences, Their Cinemas and Tastes, From Serial Houses to Grind Houses / Phyll Smith -- Chapter 3 -- Temporary Fleapits and Scabs' Alley:The Theatrical Dissemination of Italian Cannibal Films in Melbourne, Australia / Dean Brandum -- Chapter 4 -- Run, Angel, Run: Serial Production and the Biker Movie, 1966-72 / Peter Stanfield -- Chapter 5 -- "The Smashing, Crashing, Pileup of the Century": The Carsploitation Film / Robert J Read -- Chapter 6 -- Cars and Girls (and Burgers and Weed): Branding, Mainstreaming, and Crown International Pictures' SoCal Drive-in Movies / Richard Nowell -- Chapter 7 -- From "Sex Entertainment for the Whole Family" to Mature Pictures: I Jomfruens Tegn and Transnational Erotic Cinema / Kevin Heffernan -- Chapter 8 -- 'Bigger Than A Payphone, Smaller Than A Cadillac': Porn Stardom in Exhausted: John C Holmes The Real Story / Neil Jackson -- Chapter 9 -- From Opera House to Grindhouse (And Back Again): Ozploitation In and Beyond Australia / Alexandra Heller-Nicholas -- Chapter 10 -- Go West, Brother: the Politics of Landscape in the Blaxploitation Western / Austin Fisher -- Chapter 11 -- Red Power, White Movies: Billy Jack, Johnny Firecloud, and the Cultural Politics of the "Indiansploitation" Cycle / David Church -- Chapter 12 -- Sleazy Strip-Joints and Perverse Porn Circuses: The Remediation of Grindhouse in the Porn Productions of Jack the Zipper / Clarissa Smith -- Select Bibliography -- Contributors -- index -- More info

The twenties saw the birth of celebrity, still so influential even today. With the influence of Freud and the unconscious came film noir, anticipated by dark European classics like La Bete Humaine; Hollywood in the fifties turned ideological fears into lurid sci-fi and body-snatching horror; with the social change of the sixties came refracted ways of seeing, from Alfie to theStargate sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey or a compelling seventies nightmares like Carrie. Moving towards our own century, Francine Stock considers how film reflects back on itself, bending time and technology to look to the future. More than a century on from those earliest awe-inspiring images, we are still in thrall to the power of film. In this fascinating, entertaining and illuminating book Francine Stock shows how film both reflects and remakes our world. ISBN: 9781845951993 More info

Each is considered in its own right, sometimes resulting in different ways of defining New Hollywood. One of the book's central arguments is that a combination of these approaches is needed if we are to understand the latest incarnations of the cinema that continues to dominate the global market. Issues covered include: the Hollywood Renaissance from the late 1960s to the mid late 1970s; industrial factors shaping the construction of the corporate blockbuster; the role of auteur directors, genre and stardom in New Hollywood; narrative spectacle in the contemporary blockbuster and the relationship between production for the big and small screen.

Offering a compelling exploration of the Australian fifties, the book challenges the common belief that the fifties was a 'dead' era for Australian filmmaking. Reel Men engages with fourteen Australian feature films made and released between 1949 and 1962, and examines the multiple masculinities in circulation at this time. Dealing with beloved Australian films like Jedda (1955), Smiley (1956), and The Shiralee (1957), and national icons of the silver screen including Chips Rafferty, Charles 'Bud' Tingwell, and Peter Finch, Reel Men delves into our cultural past to dismantle powerful assumptions about film, the fifties, and masculinity in Australia." -- BOOK BACK COVER Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780522872477 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction -- 1 the Australian film industry: dead or alive? -- 2 Australian nation, Australian men -- 3 beyond the breadwinner -- 4 assimilation stories -- 5 anything for the family? -- 6 more than mates? -- conclusion -- bibliography -- index -- More info
Revolution! : the explosion of world cinema in the 60s / Peter Cowie
London: Faber and Faber, 2004.
Call No: 70"196" COW Author: Cowie, Peter Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Faber and Faber PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: xviii, 286 p. : ports. ; 24 cm Subject: PRODUCERS; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1960's Summary: "The 11-year span from 1958 to 1969 proved one of the most transformative and dynamic periods in cinema history, and film historian Cowie interweaves historical narrative and candid interviews with European filmmakers to chart the origins of this revolutionary celluloid expressionism and its later influence on American filmmakers such as Francis Ford Coppola and John Cassavettes. Movements such as Italian neo-realism, led by Luchino Visconti, Vittorio De Sica and Francesco Rosi, and the French New Wave reflected a post-World War II landscape brutalized by fascism and fascinated with the rise of communism. The period’s benchmark films, by mostly European directors and writers, shifted the camera lens to the character of society and away from the man who lives in it. "Rewriting the grammar of film," according to Cowie, was Jean Luc Godard, who launched the French New Wave movement with his 1960 film, a bout de souffle. With this and the endeavors of François Truffaut, Claude Chabrol and others, French filmmakers introduced a more natural, autobiographical style of moviemaking that accentuated the minutia and redundancy of life. Cowie also profiles less publicized pioneers, such as Andrzej Wajda, considered the Ingmar Bergman of Eastern Europe, who helped put Polish cinema back on the map after the country’s years of foreign occupation. In Britain, directors John Schlesinger, John Boorman and Carol Reed captured the bleak factory life of the proletariat and rebelled against social norms and the European class structure under the nose of the conservative British government. A comprehensive and engrossing study, the book ably illuminates the path from the 1960s explosion of ideas to their not-so-subversive presence in today’s art-house films." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (WWW.AMAZON.COM) Notes: Includes index; Includes bibliographical references ISBN: 0571209033 Contents: -- acknowledgements -- introduction -- 1: once upon a time in the fifties -- 2: Cinephiles to Cineastes: France in transition -- 3: the realist's eye -- 4: the big new wave -- 5: burying papa's cinema -- 6: towards a fresh aesthetic -- 7: commitment comes in from the cold -- 8: aftermath: the impact on hollywood -- 10: the long goodbye -- notes -- interviews -- filmographies of directors interviewed -- index -- More info
