The Epic Films of David Lean / by Constantine Santas

Call No: 81LEA SAN Author: Santas, Constantine Source: UK Place: Lanham, MD Publisher: Scarecrow Press PubDate: 2012 PhysDes: xli, 197 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: Lean, David; BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, THE (UK/US, David Lean, 1957); LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (UK, David Lean, 1962); DOCTOR ZHIVAGO (US, David Lean, 1965); RYAN'S DAUGHTER (UK, David Lean, 1970); PASSAGE TO INDIA, A (US/UK, David Lean, 1984) Summary: "Widely regarded as one of cinema's most accomplished directors, David Lean helmed such classics as Brief Encounter, Great Expectations, and Oliver Twist. He twice received the Academy Award for best director, and two of his films - The Bridge on the River Kwai and Lawrence of Arabia - won the Oscar for best picture. Both are featured on the American Film Institute's Top 100, with Lawrence of Arabia in the top ten. Despite the awards and accolades for these motion pictures, many critics often look more favorably upon the smaller films that Lean produced earlier in his career, and in recent years his reputation as a director has diminished. In this study, Constantine Santas seeks to restore these now undervalued epics to the elevated esteem they once held. Without dismissing the earlier works or regarding them as irrelevant to Lean's evolution as an artist, this book shows that the epics are as worthy as any of Lean's previous films. In addition to Lean's academy-Award-winning blockbusters, Santas also provides close analytical looks at Doctor Zhivago, Ryan's Daughter, and the director's final film, A Passage to India.
Santas argues that the epics show a progression and refinement of Lean's work and are thematically broader and feature more complex characterization than his earlier films. In his analyses, Santas provides background material on the production of each epic; insights into structure, characters, techniques, and themes, and a look into the relationship between the films and their literary sources. Written in a clear and engaging manner, The Epic Films of David Lean will appeal not only to cinema students and scholars but also to general fans of David Lean and his work.

Can a director, as the conductor of an orchestra of writers, actors, cameramen and technicians, stamp his personal vision on the films he makes? This and related questions are raised by this collection of statements made by famous directors about their art. Harry Geguld’s anthology of “patristic writings” runs from the days (in 1895) when Louis Lumiere filmed a train entering a station, by way of Charlie Chaplin’s knockabout ad-libbing, to the sophisticated ruminations of Antonioni and Bergman and the ideas behind the nouvelle vague. Here is D.W. Griffith’s scouting the very idea of talking pictures; Mack Sennett on custard pies; Eisenstein on three-dimensional film; Cocteau on the raw materials of illusion; Kurosawa on filming in Japan; Hitchcock on the macabre; and some other twenty leading directors on aspects of their work. In his introduction, Harry Geguld assesses the unique characteristics of motion pictures and comments refreshingly on the eternal controversy of “book into film”.

Most of these people have been interviewed so many times their answers had been turned to stone. Interviewers, too, are icon builders, and ask the same questions over and over. Celebreties, despite fame, are struggling to maintain their own living voices. It is Worrell's special gift as an interviewer and writer to hold up a mirror to the most closely held of reflections. Icons reads like a collection of finely honed short storie and raises the craft of celebrity reporting to the finest journalism." -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 0871133067 Donation: Donated by Simon Wincer Contents: Author's note -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction by Otto Friedrich -- Madonna is her given name -- The Eternal Childhood of Steven Spielberg -- Steve Martin in color -- Plain-wrap superstar Paul Newman -- Nastassia Kinski: wild child -- Bob Dylan down executioner's row -- David Lean on the far horizon -- The dark side of George Lucas -- Very very Bette Midler -- Oliver Stone goes to war -- Michael Jackson in Never-Never Land.
