Alex North : el viajero impenitente by Frederic Torres( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Se realiza un análisis de la obra del compositor norteamericano que, a mitad del pasado siglo XX, abrió las puertas de la modernidad a la música cinematográfica con la introducción del jazz en la estructura dramática de las partituras con su trabajo para Un tranvía llamado deseo. Su aproximación introspectiva a la psicología de los personajes le convirtió en el mejor ilustrador de las adaptaciones cinematográficas de autores como Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Carson McCullers, Malcom Lowry, Flannery O'Connor, Howard Fast, Victor Hugo, William Faulkner o James Joyce. Pero también supo aportar esa misma complejidad emocional a las grandes películas épicas en las que trabajó, revolucionando asimismo el género histórico con partituras de la talla de Espartaco, Cleopatra, El tormento y el éxtasis y The passover plot, así como creando otras para todo tipo de géneros entre los que destacó el western, con Más allá de Río Grande, El gran combate y Muerde la bala; el bélico, con La brigada del diablo; e, incluso, el fantástico, con El dragón del lago de fuego. Un recalcitrante viajero del espacio y el tiempo, de sólida formación musical, que jamás temió enfrentarse a temática alguna. A los 25 años de su muerte, Frederic Torres reivindica la modernidad de su obra con un pormenorizado análisis en el que se aborda toda su filmografía, así como también sus obras extracinematográficas, escénicas y televisivas.

Empire & odyssey : the Brynners in Far East Russia and beyond by Rock Brynner( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For millions of his fans, there is only one Yul Brynner, the most mysterious and exotic star in Hollywood history. But in fact four men were given that same name in successive generations, beginning with Yul’s Swiss-born grandfather, Jules, and ending with his son born in New York, Yul Jr., better known as author and historian Rock Brynner. Their lives compose a global odyssey that has come full circle in present-day Vladivostok in Far East Russia, the city built by Jules in the 1880s, where Yul and his father, Boris Julievitch, were born, and which Rock first visited on a lecture tour sponsored by the U.S. State Department.This is a vast family epic, teeming with exotic adventures, that begins aboard a pirate ship bound for Shanghai; like the fiction of Michener or Clavell, this true story is closely interwoven with history. Within twenty years of his arrival, Jules was the leading industrialist in the Far East, and the empire he created involved tiger hunters, Asian emperors, and most significantly, Tsar Nicholas II; it is revealed here exactly how their business association – and the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway to Vladivostok – triggered the Russo—Japanese War that ended three centuries of Romanov autocracy. Under Lenin’s government, Boris was the only mine owner to regain control of his vast operation; but his personal dramas in China, Manchuria, and North Korea rivaled the ordeals of Dr. Zhivago. With the Russian diaspora, Yul’s childhood took him from Vladivostok to China and then to France, where, as a teenager, he performed in nightclubs with Russian Gypsies while becoming a trapeze acrobat in the circus. He moved to America before he spoke English and within five years was starring on Broadway; ten years later he received the Academy Award for The King and I. Yul’s only son, Rock, has been a European street clown and a Broadway star, road manager for The Band and bodyguard for Muhammad Ali, as well as a novelist and historian. His numerous visits to Vladivostok, along with his research, have earned him an enduring place in its social history
