American silent film by William K Everson( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for all scholars, students, and lovers of film, this history tells you everything you need to know about American silent film, from the nickelodeons in the early 1900s to the birth of the first "talkies" in the late 1920s. The author provides descriptions of classic pictures such as The Birth of a Nation, Intolerance, Sunrise, The Covered Wagon, and Greed, and discusses their technical and artistic merits and weaknesses. He pays tribute to acknowledged masters like D.W. Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and Lillian and Dorothy Gish, but he also gives ample attention to previously neglected yet equally gifted actors and directors. In addition, the book covers individual genres, such as the comedy, western gangster, and spectacle, and explores such essential but little-understood subjects as art direction, production design, lighting and camera techniques, and the art of the subtitle; with over 150 photographs.--From publisher description

The American movie by William K Everson( Book )

10 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION (1963) - One hundred years ago, seventy-five even, there were no movies at all. Today, they are accepted as a part of life, whether they are viewed in the movie theater or at home on the television screen. What happened to make movies accepted so quickly? The answer can be found, at least in part, in this broad survey of American film history and film art. Here is a discussion of the great film pioneers and great film landmarks, a look at technological changes, trends and cycles in movie making, a glance at the present and ahead to see where movies may be going. Beyond this, the book is also a guide, based on history and on a knowledge of what makes great films, to what a knowing movie viewer looks for when he watches a picture. It is a discussion of "film grammar," of technique and of style in movie production, that makes the viewing of all movies, both old and new, a new adventure for the reader
