Harold Lloyd's world of comedy by William Cahn( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building the cumulative, visual joke was a staple during the silent film era. The recognized master of the technique was Harold Lloyd, whose superb pantomime and refinement of slapstick brought to the screen some of its finest comic moments. His ordinary young man in glasses was a carefully thought out figure--a resourceful, success-seeking go-getter--who matched the zeitgeist of the 'roaring' 20's. His extended chase scenes and daredevil physical feats as an otherwise polite, bespectacled young man brought him worldwide fame, fortune, and an enduring place in the history of motion pictures. Happily, Lloyd managed to hang on to all three. Such visual jokes were an expensive proposition, however, and when sound was introduced, producers found it cheaper to rely on the humor of dialogue rather than action. In 1962, an anthology of clips from his most famous one and two-reelers was shown to critical acclaim, proving that the carefully built and timed sight gag still has the power to leave audiences helpless with laughter. While not stinting on the biographical details, this volume describes Lloyd's methods and films with comparisons and contrasts to the methods of his contemporaries -- Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Keaton and Sennett. Mr. Lloyd comments directly on some outstanding comedians and comediennes of the present day. Lavishly illustrated, this is a feast for silent film aficionados

Reign by Chet Williamson( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story centers around a renovated theater in Pennsylvania and is arranged in three acts, plus overture and curtain call. The tension in Act I heightens as the reader must decide if this is a murder mystery, psychodrama, horror or fantasy, with the author offering clues to support each possibility. Theaters have a history of ghosts and accidents, but as the number of deaths at the Venetian mounts, the police become less inclined to accept verdicts of "accident." Owner/actor Dennis Hamilton has nothing obvious to gain from the killings, nor could he have caused them, but his strange behavior makes others wonder if he might not have a double or another personality--or something else entirely--that does want the deaths. Mystery, suspense, drama and horror combine to make this one of Williamson's finest works
