A man of the people faces tremendous odds and, by doing the right thing, triumphs! But as Joseph McBride reveals in this meticulously researched, definitive biography, the reality was far more complex, a true American tragedy. Using newly declassified U.S. government documents about Capra's response to being considered a possible "subversive" during the post-World War II Red Scare, McBride adds a final chapter to his unforgettable portrait of the man who gave us It Happened One Night, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, and Meet John Doe+-+997817768519048ocn000130419book19710.27Capra, FrankThe name above the title : an autobiographyBiographyRecords and correspondence9184ocn013823518book19860.37Carney, RaymondAmerican vision : the films of Frank CapraCriticism, interpretation, etc"There are few filmgoers who have not seen and been moved by one of the thirty-six feature films directed by Frank Capra between 1926 and 1961, among which are It's a Wonderful Life, Mr Smith Goes to Washington, MeetJohn Doe, Lost Horizon, It Happened One Night, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, and Pocketful of Miracles. Critics, however, have often dismissed the director as sentimental, or patronised his populist tendencies. Professor Carney locates the director's oeuvre within a larger tradition of post-Romantic expression, placing him in the company of figures such as Hawthorne, Emerson, James, Winslow, Homer, Sargent and Edward Hopper. Professor Carney's vast knowledge of Capra's biography, the intricacies of the Hollywood studio system, film-making techniques, and the American cultural heritage has produced a study that moves beyond the boundaries of current film scholarship. The detailed readings of individual films are presented within a broad cultural context and the context of Capra's own development."--Publisher+-+86581046357655ocn006735749book19800.50Maland, Charles JFrank CapraBiography+-+16509205353245212ocn020453393book19900.59Lourdeaux, LeeItalian and Irish filmmakers in America : Ford, Capra, Coppola, and ScorseseBiographyFour major American Film directors are studied through the lens of their ethnicity+-+52417722355205ocn055286030book20040.66Smoodin, Eric LorenRegarding Frank Capra : audience, celebrity, and American film studies, 1930-1960Criticism, interpretation, etcUsing extensive archival research in fan mail, fan magazines, army services and educational records, Smoodin explores the different reception of Capra films with different popular audiences, and how the films meanings were marshalled to a variety of natio+-+39388877355122ocn001163992book19750.56Frank Capra : the man and his films4401ocn037836100book19980.66Frank Capra : authorship and the studio systemCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+03514811063975ocn001119451book19730.50Poague, Leland AThe cinema of Frank Capra : an approach to film comedyCriticism, interpretation, etc3963ocn000984074book19740.56Willis, Donald CThe films of Frank CapraDiscusses films such as Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Meet John Doe, It's a Wonderful Life, The Bitter Tea of General Yen, Lost Horizon, You Can't Take It With You, Arsenic and Old Lace, A Hole in the Head, Platinum Blonde, American Madness, Lady for a Day, Pocketful of Miracles, It Happened One Night, Broadway Bill, Riding High, Here Comes the Groom, The Strong Man, and others3883ocn052757421book20040.50Capra, FrankFrank Capra : interviewsInterviews+-+11611532063752ocn030028319book19940.73Poague, Leland AAnother Frank CapraCriticism, interpretation, etcAnother Frank Capra offers a new interpretation of the great hollywood director beyond the patriotic sentimentalist or the cynical opportunist that he has been taken for. Often cast as a cinematic simpleton or primitive, Capra's exploitation of the stylistic and narrative resources of cinema was, in fact, extremely self-conscious and adventurous in ways typical of artistic modernism. His modernism is also evident in his repeated and strong identification with female characters.
