Westerns: Making the Man in Fiction and Film


Westerns: Making the Man in Fiction and Film


$8.8


Ranging from the novels of James Fenimore Cooper to Louis L’Amour, and from classic films like "Stagecoach" to spaghetti Westerns like "A Fistful of Dollars," Mitchell shows how Westerns helped assuage a series of crises in American culture. This landmark study shows that the Western owes its perennial appeal not to unchanging conventions but to the deftness with which it responds to the obsessions and fears of its audience. And no obsession, Lee Mitchell argues, has figured more prominently in the Western than what it means to be a man. "Elegantly written. . . . provocative . . . characterized by Mitchell’s] own tendency to shoot from the hip."–J. Hoberman, "London Review of Books" " Mitchell’s] book would be worth reading just for the way he relates Benjamin Spock’s "Baby and Child" to the postwar Western."–"The Observer" "Integrating a careful handling of historical context with a keen eye for textual nuances, Mitchell reconstructs the Western’s aesthetic tradition of the 19th century."–Aaron M. Wehner, "San Francisco Review"

Third World Film Making and the West


Third World Film Making and the West


$3.95


This volume is the first fully comprehensive account of film production in the Third World. Although they are usually ignored or marginalized in histories of world cinema," Third World countries now produce well over half of the world’s films. Roy Armes sets out initially to place this huge output in a wider context, examining the forces of tradition and colonialism that have shaped the Third World–defined as those countries that have emerged from Western control but have not fully developed their economic potential or rejected the capitalist system in favor of some socialist alternative. He then considers the paradoxes of social structure and cultural life in the post-independence world, where even such basic concepts as "nation," "national culture," and "language" are problematic. The first experience of cinema for such countries has invariably been that of imported Western films, which created the audience and, in most cases, still dominate the market today. Thus, Third World film makers have had to ssert their identity against formidable outside pressures. The later sections of the book look at their output from a number of angles: in terms of the stages of overall growth and corresponding stages of cinematic development; from the point of view of regional evolution in Asia, Africa, and Latin America; and through a detailed examination of the work of some of the Third World’s most striking film innovators. In addition to charting the broad outlines of filmic developments too little known in Europe and the United States, the book calls into question many of the assumptions that shape conventional film history. It stresse the role of distribution in defining and limiting production, queries simplistic notions of independent "national cinemas," and points to the need to take social and economic factors into account when considering authorship in cinema. Above all, the book celebrates the achievements of a mass of largely unknown film makers who, in difficult circumstances, have distinctively expanded our definitions of the art of cinema. Roy Armes, who lives in London, has written nine books on film, his most recent being "French Cinema." He spent more than three years researching this volume.

The Making of Cabaret


The Making of Cabaret


$24.2


Condensing a wide variety of sources into a handy and engaging chronicle, this book is the most detailed production history to date of the original Broadway version of Cabaret, showing primarily how the show evolved from Christopher Isherwood’s Berlin stories (especially the Sally Bowles novella), into John van Druten’s stage play, a British film adaptation, and then the Broadway musical, conceived and directed by Harold Prince as an early concept musical or meta-musical. The book shows how Prince was able to find his central metaphor that was appropriate to Weimar society and to America in the Sixties as well. It places this cabaret metaphor within a contextual history of European cabaret. Tracing the gradual evolution of Joe Masteroff’s libretto (through three versions), the book analyzes the musical’s main metaphor, structure, music and lyrics (John Kander and Fred Ebb), design (sets by Boris Aronson, lighting by Jean Rosenthal, costumes (by Patricia Zipprodt), choreography (Ron Field), casting, and rehearsals, arguing that though the original version was limited by social and political mores of its day, it set a new standard and path for the American musical, drawing attention to its own theatrical artifice (including camp). The book ends with an examination of the first London version (1968), Bob Fosse’s 1972 film version, Hal Prince’s 1987 Broadway remount, Sam Mendes’s stunning 1998 production, Rufus Norris’s London re-imagining (2006), and Amanda Dehnert’s new investigation for the Stratford Festival of Canada (2006), and speculates on what the future holds for this musical. The book contains nearly 40 illustrations, full cast credits, and a bibliography.

The merging of still photography with mechanized projection instruments in the late nineteenth century gave us what became the rich and exciting art of cinema. Here is its story, starting with the Lumiere brothers in Paris and Thomas Edison in America. Early experiments evolved into film classics such as The Great train Robbery (1903), the Mack Sennett, Charlie Chaplin, and Buster Keaton comedies, the expressionist films of Fritz Lang and Sergey Eisenstein, and the early "talkies". A century of film-making is reviewed in words and pictures that cover the comedies, musicals, and drama. Readers learn how film-making technique has changed over time, from the magic lantern to advanced methods of computer animation, rear projection, Technicolor, 3D, special effects, camera panning and perspective, script-writing and directing.

The Making of London: London in Contemporary Literature


The Making of London: London in Contemporary Literature


$31.71


London has become the focus of a ferocious imaginative energy since the rise of Thatcher. "The Making of London" analyses the body of exceptional work by writers who have unconditionally committed their writing to the many lives of a city undergoing complex transformations. The book traces a major shift in the representation of the capital city, from the postmodern obsession with textuality, the shoring up of London’s myths against a declining social fabric, and an exuberant multicultural utopia, to an anxious post-9/11 metropolis that has fallen apart. Is London undone? Authors covered include Maureen Duffy, Michael Moorcock, J. G. Ballard, Angela Carter, Iain Sinclair, Peter Ackroyd, Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Hanif Kureishi, Will Self, Zadie Smith and Monica Ali.

Making Your First Film


Making Your First Film


$21.89


"Making Your First Film" is a concise and meaty resource that will pay for itself a thousand times over. It doesn’t wax eloquent about things you don’t have time to read. It’s not an all encompassing treaty on filmmaking because reading text books won’t get your film made. And it includes something that most books don’t; the owner of the book receives THREE FREE emails and/or telephone contacts with our Hollywood Production Company, Castlight Pictures. We will take your emails and talk to you on the telephone to get you started. You will receive expertise from our producers/directors and writers. What book gives you that? You’ve heard the adage in one of Tiger Woods’ commercials that success is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. Well, filmmaking is about the same ratio. Darwinian odds are at play more than film schools and "long-winded" books want to admit. It’s more about "doing" than "knowing." Most people can figure out how to write, get written or buy a script. What they can’t figure out is how to get the money to make their film and what to do next. Regardless if it’s a short, a feature or a documentary only those who know how to mine their own resources and contacts to raise capital are going to be filmmakers. Anybody can write a script and hope Hollywood comes calling. I can’t tell you how many scripts and people with them are out there. All waiting for an Agent, an Option, a Sale or Film Deal to propel them into what they really want to do: make films This book is different. If you don’t want to work hard, and I mean hard, at making your film, go buy a treaty on filmmaking, hang out at Starbucks and tap on your laptop along with the others. However, if you’re ready to make things happen, today, then let’s get started.

Great Golf Courses of America


Great Golf Courses of America


$3.95


"From the INTRODUCTION to Great Golf Courses of America" This may be a futile gesture, but I’ll make it anyhow, just for the record. Read the next sentence very carefully; maybe read it twice: This book is not a ranking of the best courses in the United States Ranking courses, as such, seems to have become a necessary evil in the past dozen years or so. And I say that as a ranking panelist for two major magazines, one in Canada and one in the U.S. In fact, I started the ranking trend in Canada when I was managing editor of Score magazine, the national golf publication. Mea culpa. Granted, there are some positive aspects to this phenomenon; not the least of which is that it sells magazines and advertising. One recent publication even goes so far as to differentiate between modern and classical courses. (Give me a break.) But I digress. This book is a cross section of some of the best layouts in America. You stroll through these pages and visit great courses from coast to coast, enjoying the spectrum of design, history, geography, topography, and so on. Some are private, some public, some resorts. Most of us will never have a chance to play Pine Valley, Seminole, or Augusta National, but isn’t it great to dream? On the other hand, anyone can play Kapalua or Harbour Town. And who knows, a golfing acquaintance may have a friend who is a member at Shinnecock Hills or Winged Foot. Selecting and writing about the courses was just part of the procedure. Photographer Michael French, who has teamed up with me on two previous golf books, spent weeks welded to the seat of his truck, hopscotching across the country to capture the essence of the final choices. He covered almost 20,000 miles, shooting more than 400 rolls of film in the process. (No, he didn’t drive to Hawaii.) He packed only the essentials into his vehicle: cameras, lenses, golf clubs, mountain bike, and … cappuccino maker. That last item stood him in good stead when he was storm-stayed for two days in the mountains of North Carolina. In addition to fancy coffeemakers, our collaboration process also required 500 faxes, $10,000 in telephone calls, and mounds of books, scorecards, yardage guides, videos, and other resource materials. Whether or not you agree with the courses we selected is immaterial. These choices are intended to delight the golfer’s eye and ignite their imagination. We think we accomplished that goal. We hope you agree. John Gordon

All Courses Great and Small: A Golfer's Pilgrimage to England and Wales


All Courses Great and Small: A Golfer’s Pilgrimage to England and Wales


$23.53


Every golfer dreams of making a pilgrimage to the British Isles, and it sometimes seems as though every golfer is in fact making that pilgrimage, especially when you’re trying to book a tee time. The legendary courses of Scotland and Ireland are magnificent shrines, but their fame has obscured the greatness of the golf to be found all across the landscape of England and Wales. From the heathland in the north and center to the linksland on the coasts, England and Wales present an extraordinary variety of great golf experiences. "In All Courses Great and Small, " James W. Finegan treats the reader to a countries-wide survey of these golfing delights — some famous, like the Open Championship venues of Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham & St. Annes, and Royal St. George’s; some well known, like Sunningdale, Wentworth, and The Belfry; and some gems that have long been hidden in plain sight, like The Addington (in suburban London) or Southport & Ainsdale (not ten minutes from Royal Birkdale). There are as many outstanding courses in England and Wales as there are in Scotland and Ireland combined, a shocking fact that is easily explained: While Scotland has 5.2 million people and 550 golf courses, and Ireland has 3.5 million people and 400 courses, England and Wales have 50 million people and more than 2,000 courses. Finegan provides a charming guide to the courses and the towns, the inns and the eateries to be found along the way. He highlights the best of the not quite four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire; gives advice about lunch after your round at Sandwich; raises a cup of grog at Gog Magog; and tackles the playing and pronouncing problems posed by Pwllheli. He gives full due to the best-known places such as Rye, Wentworth, Hoylake, and the royals, but he also declares such lesser-known treasures as St. Enodoc, Silloth-on-Solway, Southerndown, and Pennard to be every bit as worthy of your time and attention. His books on the courses of Scotland and Ireland, "Blasted Heaths and Blessed Greens" and "Emerald Fairways and Foam-Flecked Seas, " have become invaluable companions to thousands of travelers; "All Courses Great and Small" is an irresistible and even more essential addition to the touring golfer’s shelf and suitcase.

Projections 10: Hollywood Film-Makers on Film-Making


Projections 10: Hollywood Film-Makers on Film-Making


$3.95


Ever since his first journey to Hollywood in 1987, the director Mike Figgis has been intrigued by the workings of the studio system. As he progressed from the acclaim for his first American-produced film, Internal Affairs, through hellish studio wrangles on Mr. Jones and on to the Academy Award-winning success of Leaving Las Vegas, Figgis has always wanted to find a way to document the dubious mores of the Hollywood system. For Projections 10, he accepted an invitation to return to Los Angeles in late 1998 as guest editor and create such a document. The format is simple: a series of taped, no-holds-barred conversations with filmmakers, directors, actors, writers, managers, and agents. What emerges from these interviews with Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Sony Pictures head John Calley, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and others is a fairly dark picture of an industry where money does more than talk. And in addition to exploring the corrupting influence of money, Projections 10 asks such questions as: Why does Hollywood still rely on formula? What is the position of women in filmmaking and in film today? And where is the studio system that the word "Hollywood" represents going? Also included is Figgis’s own journal from his visit in 1998 and his impressions of the films he saw.

Making Dead Birds: Chronicle of a Film


Making Dead Birds: Chronicle of a Film


$40.05


Robert Gardner’s classic "Dead Birds" is one of the most highly acclaimed and controversial documentary films ever made. This detailed and candid account of the process of making "Dead Birds," from the birth of the idea through filming in New Guinea to editing and releasing the finished film, is more than the chronicle of a single work. It is also a thoughtful examination of what it meant to record the moving and violent rituals of warrior-farmers in the New Guinea highlands and to present to the world a graphic story of their behavior as a window onto our own. Letters, journals, telegrams, newspaper clippings, and over 50 images are assembled to recreate a vivid chronology of events. "Making Dead Birds" not only addresses the art and practice of filmmaking, but also explores issues of representation and the discovery of meaning in human lives. Gardner led a remarkable cast of participants on the 1961 expedition. All brought back extraordinary bodies of work. Probably most influential of all was "Dead Birds," which marked a sea change in nonfiction filmmaking. This book takes the reader inside the creative process of making that landmark film and offers a revealing look into the heart and mind of one of the great filmmakers of our time.
