1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of articles which examines the history of the aural and visual media. They recount the infancy of the recording and film industries; reflect the beginnings of conscious artistry; and illuminate the genius of directors, cameramen, actors and composers. Some articles focus on the political influence of the media; others on their entertainment aspects. Others chronicle the rediscovery of lost films. Reminiscences are juxtaposed with in-depth analyses and range from the earliest days to the present. The volume has an introduction by Erik Barnouw, professor Emeritus of Dramatic Arts at Columbia University. Two 12-inch records accompanying this volume present the film music of David Raksin and Scott Bradley. ISBN 0-8444-0445-4 : $40.00 (For use only in the library)

Der Versuch, das Undarstellbare eines Atomkrieges und seiner vernichtenden Folgen am Beispiel der Zerstörung Kansas Citys und der Verseuchung seiner Umgebung darzustellen. Mit den Mitteln des amerikanischen Fernsehfilms trotz dramaturgischer Schwächen zu starker Wirkung gebracht, wobei die Inszenierung weniger argumentiert als Angst erzeugt. Die Kompromißlosigkeit, mit der das Thema behandelt wird, kann dennoch diskussionsfördernd sein. [film-dienst]
