 A CRITICAL HISTORY OF HISTORY IN MOVING PICTURES


A CRITICAL HISTORY OF HISTORY IN MOVING PICTURES


$4.41


In the first book of its kind in the English language historian Dr. John Dunbar provides an overview of attempts throughout film history to put historical topics on screen in the United States and Great Britain. The earliest attempts were biographic films about famous people and some great epic films such as Gone With the Wind that were not claimed to be accurate histories of a period. World War Two paved the way for post war developments through the evolution of the documentary film that were often accurate portrayals of events in the war. After WW 2 a number of social, political, technical and economic developments opened the way for the making of historically accurate films. The dissolution of the Studio System in Hollywood, the disappearance of film censor boards, the arrival of television and later the internet, the appearance of greater market segments than those traditionally served by motion picture all opened up market opportunities for films of greater historical accuracy than had traditionally been available. The emergence of film makers and production companies dedicated to the accurate telling of history now engages the resources of professional historians in the making of films of unequalled accuracy. As items in the modern world of media literacy and political discourse, these films play an important role in the sustenance of the open society in which the ideals of the European Enlightenment can be continually realized.

 Academic Films for the Classroom


Academic Films for the Classroom


$37.75


Exploring a realm of film often dismissed as campy or contrived, this book traces the history of classroom educational films from the silent era through the 1980s, when film finally began to lose ground to video-based and digital media. It profiles 35 individual academic filmmakers who played a role in bringing these roughly 110,000 16mm films to classrooms across North America, paying particular attention to auteur John Barnes and his largely neglected body of work. Other topics include: the production companies contributing to the growth and development of the academic film genre; the complex history of post-Sputnik, federally-funded educational initiatives which influenced the growth of the academic film genre; and the denouement of the genre in classrooms and its resurgence on the Internet.

Excerpt: Color Climax Corporation ApS (CCC) is a Danish pornography company. It has its headquarters in Copenhagen. It had been one of the leading producers of European pornography up until the 1990s. Since then CCC has recessed most of its assets, but because its earlier works attract admirers of so-called “classic pornography”, CCC still functions today via the Internet. Color Climax corporation (CCC) began in 1967 with the publication of the porn magazine ColorClimax, despite pornography being illegal in Denmark until 1969.Films In 1969 Denmark legalized the production of all kinds of pornography. In the 1970s, CCC began to produce 8 mm pornographic film loops. By the 1980s, video tape had replaced the film loops, sometimes as compilations of previously released material. CCC films usually had a wider range of contents including bestiality (some of them starring Bodil Joensen ), she-males, and other content not widely available at the time. Watersports were displayed as conventional sexual acts. By 2004 Color Climax had many popular European filmstars such as Anna Marek, Tove Jensen (stage name Tiny Tove), Rocco Siffredi, Tiffany Towers and John Holmes in their archives on their website. In one production, Jensen appeared with her mother. Child pornography Color Climax was one of the only large-scale commercial producers of child pornography to openly advertise the fact. It produced the first European commercial child pornography films. From 1969 to 1979, Color Climax was responsible for the relatively large-scale distribution of child pornography. Between 1971 and

Excerpt: The race movie or race film was a film genre which existed in the United States between about 1915 and 1950. It consisted of films produced for an all-black audience, featuring black casts. In all, approximately five hundred race films were produced. Of these, fewer than one hundred remain. Because race films were produced outside the Hollywood studio system, they have been largely forgotten by mainstream film historians. In their day, race films were very popular among African American theatergoers. Their influence continues to be felt in cinema and television marketed to African Americans. Race films were some of the first financially successful independent films. Much like early black sitcoms, race movies were most often financed by white-owned companies, such as Alfred N. Sack, and scripted by white writers. Black-owned studios also existed, including Lincoln Motion Picture Company (19161921), and most notably Oscar Micheaux’s, Chicago-based Micheaux Film Corporation, which operated from 19181940. On his posters, Micheaux advertised the fact that his films were produced and scripted exclusively by blacks. Astor Pictures released several race films and produced Beware with Louis Jordan. The race films vanished after United States v. Paramount Pictures, Inc. or the Hollywood Antitrust Case of 1948 that forced the separation of motion picture exhibitors and motion picture production companies. Black actors took the lead in several Hollywood major productions such as Pinky with Ethel Waters, Home of the Brave with James Edwards, Intruder in the Dust all in 1949, and No Way Out (1950), the debut of Sidney Poitier. In the South, to comply with segregation, race movies were screened at designated black theaters. Though northern cities were not. More:
