The birth of the talkies : from Edison to Jolson by Harry M Geduld( Book )

13 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Preface: Few if any events have had greater impact on the history of film than the coming of the talkies, film historians have paid relatively little attention to how and why the transition from silent to sound cinema came about. It is hoped that the present work will provide the factual groundwork for repairing that neglect. Its emphasis is on the history of American contributions to the evolution of the sound film, but significant foreign achievements have not been overlooked. The book surveys the events that led from the invention of the phonograph in 1877 to that momentous evening in 1927 when an audience at the Warner's Theatre in New York City saw and heard Al Jolson speak from the screen. It also considers the effects of the sound revolution on Hollywood and Hollywood film production during the transitional years 1928-29. The published sources on which this study was based have all been indicated in the notes, and the reader is advised to consult that original material whenever he requires additional technical or factual information

Authors on film by Harry M Geduld( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Different authors' attitudes toward film are revealed through five different sections of this book: (1) articles, essays, and reviews pertaining to the silent cinema and the transition to sound; (2) general statements on the film medium or filmmakers and their messages; (3) essays dealing with the problems, involvements, and reflections of the writer as screenwriter; (4) the Hollywood experience as seen by four American novelists (William Faulkner, Theodore Dreiser, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and James T. Farrell); and (5) several pieces about a small galaxy of Hollywood stars. Among the 35 authors commenting, there are a variety of opinions: Somerset Maugham, Thomas Mann, and Virginia Woolf debate the suitability of novels for the screen, Shaw and Mencken comment on the mediocrity of the Hollywood product, and T.S. Eliot analyzes the film's resources for the poetic dramatist. Truman Capote and William Faulkner are interviewed; Ernest Hemingway comments on Marlene Dietrich, Jean Cocteau on Chaplin, Louis Aragon on Jean-Luc Godard, and James Baldwin on Sidney Poitier. Many different aspects of the writer's interest in the involvement with film are documented in this collection of articles. (Hs)

"The Time Machine is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative.
