Film: The Creative Process by John Howard Lawson- 1964 First

£14.99

Product description

Film: The Creative Process by John Howard Lawson -1964 First Edition
This book represents the first serious attempt by an American writer to develop an aesthetic of the film. It combines intimate practical experience in Hollywood with an understanding of avant-garde theory and trends and thus bridges the gap between the commercial and the art film. The author first presents a graphic history of the development of the film: the use of the kinetescope. He goes on to discuss the "language" of the film and shows how the cinema differs from and sometimes transcends the theatre. He examines the relationship of the novel to the film, with special reference to Pudovkin's production of Gorki's "Mother" and Ford's "Grapes of Wrath"
There are numerous black-and-white photographs.
This copy is in excellent condition for its age. The dust jacket shows signs of wear especially around the the edges. The inner pages are faded but clean and unmarked. There is also a loose letter in type from the publishers.
This book would appeal to film historians and also to those with an interest in film-making and/or collectors.
