Beyond wiseguys : Italian Americans & the movies( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BEYOND WISEGUYS shows how Italian Americans transformed themselves from "outsiders"--Stereotyped by the Hollywood establishment as mobsters - into industry insiders and a creative force to be reckoned with. Using a mosaic of interviews with well-known contemporary Italian American filmmakers like Chazz Palminteri, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Jack Valenti, David Chase, Ben Gazzara, Isabella Rossellini and others, the documentary highlights the ways in which these filmmakers use their heritage to positively shape the art and craft of American cinema. Told against the backdrop of Hollywood history, the documentary is lavishly punctuated with film clips, stills and family photos - many supplied by the interviewees themselves. "It's impossible to imagine American film history without Frank Capra, Francis Cord Coppola or Martin Scorsese," says Fred Gardaphe, Chairman of the Italian American Studies Program at SUNY Stony Brook. "It's also hard to separate the popular image of Italian Americans from the goombas that crowd many of Hollywood's most successful films." Beyond Wiseguys explores the history of the Italian-as-gangster stereotype from the silent era, the advent of the "talkies," through groundbreaking films like The Godfather and the acclaimed television series The Sopranos."It's an entertaining, provocative film," says Executive Producer Turturro, "interesting not only to America's 20 million Italian Americans but to movie lovers all over the country." BEYOND WISEGUYS: Italian Americans & The Movies is a co-production of Beachcomber Films and Pacific Street Films. The film runs approximately one hour
Speed traps!( Visual )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The race to build a better 'fuzzbuster, ' radar and laser detectors, has spawned a multi-million dollar industry that uses space age technology to build devices to detect the spurious emissions of police speed detecting devices. Some technology mavens have even attempted to build devices that actually neutralize the radar and laser guns employed by the police. While their legality is in question, from state to state, their effectiveness has also been called into question. The police, on the other hand, continue their quest to build more efficient and sophisticated speed detecting devices, some of which prove costlier than the entire budget of a small town police department
