The cinema as art / Ralph Stephenson & J. R. Debrix
Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1969.
Call No: 63 STE Author: Stephenson, Ralph; Debrix, J. R. CorpAuthor: Penguin Edition: Revised edition, reprint Place: Harmondsworth Publisher: Penguin PubDate: 1969 PhysDes: 270 p.,  p. of plates ; 18 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; ART AND THE CINEMA; ART CINEMA; EDITING; CINEMATOGRAPHY; SOUND; COSTUMES; MAKE-UP; COLORIZATION; LIGHTING Summary: “The cinema as art”, to those brought up on the “movie show and bubblegum” image, must look like a pretentious contradiction in terms. As this book demonstrates, however, the cinema stands for an art form which is almost unique in immediacy and scope. The authors explain, with over 300 examples taken from films of every country and period, the stages by which a director isolates what is mentally and emotionally significant in a situation. The reader is shown, from the inside, how the director may achieve this end by exploiting any or all of the cinematic techniques from script-planning to final editing, from camera movement to costume from sound to soft-focus.

The interviews are loaded with humour, bitter feuds, and personal anecdotes of the great and near great."
