From his first feature, Straight Shooting (1917), to Cheyenne Autumn (1964), it is especially in his Westerns - including such cinematic gems as Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine, Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Wagon Master, and The Searchers - that Ford created a unique personal vision of his country's past, both rooted in and reacting to the aspirations of Manifest Destiny, the supremely self-confident belief that continually propelled American society westward across the continent."

19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1920s may have been more significant in formative terms; other times have been more profitable for movies as an industry. But the period 1958-89 saw a brilliant explosion of talent not just in Europe but throughout the world. From France and Italy to India and Japan, Poland and Czechoslovakia to North and South America, young film-makers sprang from nowhere to challenge the drear conformity of the fifties and flout the abiding taboos, both sexual and political, of their age. The vanguard of this revolution included Godard and Truffaut, Pasolini and Bertoluoci, Oshima and Rocha, Polanski and Cassavetes."--Jacket

Annie Hall by Peter Cowie( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For an entire generation, Annie Hall embodied the notion of a New York peopled by sophisticated intellectuals - all sent up by the deadpan comedy genius of Woody Allen, writer, director, and of course star. It also confirmed the sparkling acting talent of Diane Keaton as a partner for Woody on screen. The film has survived as a popular comedy, however, by virtue of Allen's inventiveness as a director and the timelessness of his satire. Peter Cowie's study of Annie Hall recaptures the mood of the 70s, and examines the myriad imaginative touches that distinguish the film from other American productions of the period. The book also includes a glossary of the many cultural references which give the film its distinctively 'intellectual' tone."--Jacket
