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."

Grindhouse : cultural exchange on 42nd street, and beyond / edited by Austin Fishers and Johnny Walker

Call No: 722.81 GRI Author: Fisher, Austin (ed.); Walker, Johnny (ed.) Source: US/UK Place: New York Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: 266 pages ; 25 cm Series: Global exploitation cinemas Subject: EXPLOITATION FILMS; BLAXPLOITATION FILMS; HORROR FILMS; HISTORY OF CINEMA; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1960's; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1970's; HISTORY OF CINEMA. 1980's; EROTIC FILMS; MOVEMENTS AND STYLES IN FILM HISTORY; POPULAR CULTURE AND THE CINEMA; CRITICISM Summary: "The pervasive image of New York's 42nd Street as a hub of sensational thrills, vice and excess, is from where “grindhouse cinema,” the focus of this volume, stemmed. 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.
