  1. Graeme Ross - The Western Movie Quiz Book
    The Western Movie Quiz Book - Saddle up for 1250 questions and answers on the greatest movie genre of them all! If you are a fan of Westerns, there are some things a man just can't ride around, and The Western Movie Quiz Book is well worth a mosey. The Western Movie Quiz Book is an affectionate tribute to a much loved and enduring cinematic art form. With 1250 questions ranging from the very easy to 'expert' covering 125 subjects, the book is a comprehensive history of the Western. All the classic Westerns from over a century of movie making, as well as more obscure 'oaters' are covered, and the icons of the genre - the great directors, stars and locations are an integral part of the book. Subjects include Spaghetti Westerns, Comedy Westerns, Catchphrases, Good Guys and Bad Guys, as well as chapters on Wayne, Eastwood, Fonda and many others who helped make the Western the most loved film genre of all. The recent critical and box office success of True Grit and Cowboys and Aliens has demonstrated that there is still an audience for the Western, and with Quentin Tarantino's entry into the Western canon Django Unchained, making the genre fashionable again, the timing of The Western Movie Quiz Book is perfect. With a foreword by Philip French, film critic of The Observer newspaper and author of Westerns: Aspects of a Movie Genre, a seminal history of the genre, The Western Movie Quiz Book will provide many hours of nostalgia, entertainment and escapism for quizmasters, movie buffs and anyone interested in the history of the Western movie. Happy Trails! GRAEME ROSS was born in Greenock in the west of Scotland and has lived and worked in the area all his life. He served as a Firefighter in Greenock for thirty years and now works in the Scottish Football Museum at the home of Scottish football, Hampden Park. THE WESTERN MOVIE QUIZ BOOK is Graeme's sixth book. His other works include histories of his local football (Soccer) club, Morton, and a Frank Sinatra quiz book. Graem

  2. Alex Marlow-Mann - Film Festival Yearbook 5: Archival Film Festivals
    Most people associate film festivals with premieres and the dissemination of the latest trends in cinema. However, the past three decades has also seen the rise of festivals dedicated to re-presenting cinema's past through restorations, retrospectives and rediscoveries. This anthology is the first to chart the development of this phenomenon, while also considering such key issues as: the relationship between archives and festivals, the role of live music and the event screening, canon formation and the impact of digital technologies. Featuring writings by Paolo Cherchi Usai, Ian Christie, David Robinson, interviews with Tom Luddy and Nick Varley, and chapters by festival specialists and scholars, Archival Film Festivals contains a dozen case studies from around the globe, five interviews with festival directors, programmers and distributors, a themed bibliography and a table of archival film festivals from around the world.

  4. Representing 9/11: Trauma, Ideology, and Nationalism in Literature, Film, ...
    As the horrific events of September 11, 2001, slip deeper into the past, the significance of 9/11 remains a global cultural touchstone. Initially, filmmakers, writers, and other artists wrangled with its meaning, often relying on fantastical, ethnic, or exceptionalist themes to address the psychic dread of the terrorist attacks. Over time, however, more nuanced and socio-historical perspectives about 9/11 and its impact on America and the world have emerged. In Representing 9/11: Trauma, Ideology, and Nationalism in Literature, Film, and Television, prominent authors from a variety of disciplines demonstrate how emergent American and international texts expand upon and complicate the initial post-9/11 canon. Editor Paul Petrovic has assembled a collection of essays that broadens our understanding of how popular culture has addressed 9/11, particularly as it has evolved over time. Contributors bring fresh readings to popular novels, such as Jonathan Lethem's Chronic City and Jonathan Franzen's Freedom; films like Zero Dark Thirty and This Is the End; and television shows such as 24 and Homeland. Showcasing a diverse range of viewpoints, essays in this collection assess, among other topics, how African American identity is challenged by post-9/11 allegories; how superhero films foretell the inevitability of city-wide destruction by terrorists; and how shows like Breaking Bad problematize ideas of liberalism and masculinity. Though primarily aimed at scholars, Representing 9/11 seeks to engage readers interested in how various forms of media have interpreted the events and aftermath of the terrorist attacks in 2001.

  5. Greg M. Colón Semenza - The History of British Literature on Film, ...
    From The Death of Nancy Sykes (1897) to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) and beyond, cinematic adaptations of British literature participate in a complex and fascinating history. The History of British Literature on Film, 1895-2015 is the only comprehensive narration of cinema's 100-year-old love affair with British literature. Unlike previous studies of literature and film, which tend to privilege particular authors such as Shakespeare and Jane Austen, or particular texts such as Frankenstein, or particular literary periods such as Medieval, this volume considers the multiple functions of filmed British literature as a cinematic subject in its own right-one reflecting the specific political and aesthetic priorities of different national and historical cinemas. In what ways has the British literary canon authorized and influenced the history and aesthetics of film, and in what ways has filmed British literature both affirmed and challenged the very idea of literary canonicity? Seeking to answer these and other key questions, this indispensable study shows how these adaptations emerged from and continue to shape the social, artistic, and commercial aspects of film history.

  6. Malte Hagener - The Emergence of Film Culture: Knowledge Production, ...
    Between the two world wars, a distinct and vibrant film culture emerged in Europe. Film festivals and schools were established; film theory and history was written that took cinema seriously as an art form; and critical writing that created the film canon flourished. This scene was decidedly transnational and creative, overcoming traditional boundaries between theory and practice, and between national and linguistic borders. This new European film culture established film as a valid form of social expression, as an art form, and as a political force to be reckoned with. By examining the extraordinarily rich and creative uses of cinema in the interwar period, we can examine the roots of film culture as we know it today.

  7. Mark Lancer - Canon EOS Rebel T6i /T6s: The Complete Guide (750D/760D)
    The Rebel T6i and Rebel T6i cameras are referred to as sibling devices taken from one DSLR line. In February 2015, Canon USA announced their intention regarding the popular line and promised its release for the end of April in the same year. The T6s, also dubbed 760D, has been considered by reviewers to be Canon's current model for the Rebel line. The Rebel T6i or 750D, as it is also known, since its release has become known for its low cost appeal to buyers in the market. The devices both come equipped with an autofocus system in the form of a Hybrid CMOS Auto Focus 3. This enables autofocus accuracy and speed while capturing movies or during use of the camera's live view feature. Also similar between the devices is the ISO sensitivity that ranges from one hundred to twelve thousand eight hundred, there continuous shooting capabilities of approximately five frames per second and a nineteen point auto focus system. The T6s and T6i also come designed with an interactive three inch swivelling display equipped with touchscreen functions and boasting one point zero four million dots. The new members of the Rebel line also share WI-FI and NFC connectivity and 1080p movie recording capabilities at approximately thirty frames per second. The T6s camera differs from the earlier Rebel lines with the innovative LCD panel located to the top of the device, a quick lockable control dial on the back of the camera, a built-in HDR for video shooting, a parallel level guide and a Servo auto focus during an active live view feature. The Servo feature is designed to enable users to monitor video capturing during burst shooting. It is most suited for the advanced photographer and mixes technology with modernity. The Rebel T6i boasts a three inch LCD monitor with ClearView 2 technology that allows for use at varied angles, continuous shooting at high-speeds, system designed for analyzing EOS scenes and innovative creative filters. Despite the differences, both devices offer users the hi

  9. C. Franck - Father of the.. -CD+DVD-
    César Franck (1822 - 1890) founded the French symphonic organ school with twelve great compositions, all of which are found in this 2xDVD 2xCD set. His Six Pièces (1868), described by Lizst as the most important pieces for organ since Bach, included the first symphonic organ work and set the bar for later composers such as Widor, Guilmant and Vierne. His Trois Pièces (1878) brought vigour and grandeur to a nation recovering from the Franco-Prussian defeat. With the Trois Chorals he created peerless masterpieces that are among the most popular works ever written for the organ. Cesar Franck - Father of the Organ SymphonyAt the centre of this boxed-set are three films that explore his life and work. In Franck: Life of an Organist, Eric Lebrun, biographer of Franck, traces the most important events of his life and shows how his organ music fits into his overall canon. In An Introduction to Franck's Twelve Great Organ Works, David Noël-Hudson offers a textual analysis of all twelve pieces, including a groundbreaking thesis showing how the Trois Chorals can be seen as a single, cyclic work with three movements. In Franck and Performance Practice on the Organ, Joris Verdin demonstrates how to play Franck's music in a historically informed manner. All twelve works are presented over the CDs and DVDs, in stunning recordings on key organs built by Franck's great patron, Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, including the magnificent instrument in the cathedral of Saint-Omer. In addition, various bonus tracks include movements from L'organiste, Franck's valedictory work for the harmonium. In sum, these films and recordings provide the content and context of Franck's greatest organ music. Featuring the Cavaillé-Coll organs of: Cathédral Notre-Dame de Saint-Omer, Saint-Louis d'Antin, Paris, Saint-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts, Abbaye de Royaumont, Orléans Cathedral orgue de choeur. Subtitles: English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Nederlands

  10. Wally Caruana - Australia
    This landmark book charts the development of Australian art, from early Aboriginal work to that of the first colonial settlers, immigrant artists of the twentieth century and the culturally diverse inhabitants of the country today. Exploring this eclectic 300-year history, the book also celebrates key moments in the Australian canon, such as Sidney Nolans iconic paintings about the outlaw Ned Kelly, begun in the 1940s. In recent years the tenacious influence of European art on Australian practice has waned, making way for a highly original native art scene of international standing. Such contemporary artists as Tracey Moffatt, Fiona Hall and Vernon Ah Kee are also represented here. The art of this continent is indelibly linked to its epic landscape. This book focuses especially on this complex and evolving alliance, illustrating in paintings, prints, drawings, photographs and film and video stills the distinctive Australian terrain, and examining the ways in which Australian artists have sought to negotiate their identities in relation to the extremes of their land.

  12. Melissa Ragona - Carolee Schneemann: Unforgivable
    Carolee Schneemann is one of the most important artists of the postwar period. Her work in a range of media-painting, film, video, dance and performance, constructions and installations, the written word, and assemblage-presents an unparalleled catalogue of radical aesthetic experimentation. Meat Joy, 1964, Fuses, 1964-66, Up To and Including Her Limits, 1973-1976, and Interior Scroll, 1975, are now considered canonical projects, required entries in any meaningful account of contemporary art, belying their once notoriety as feminist challenges of the very concept of the art historical canon.Throughout the last fifty years, Schneemann has participated in the most significant formulations of the avant-garde, having made crucial contributions in Fluxus, happenings, expanded cinema, and performance cultures, while complicating generic definitions that might cohere to her work. Schneemann has been the subject of numerous exhibitions and publications throughout her career, and her work is in the collections of Tate Modern, Commune di Milano, Centre Georges Pompidou, Muzeum Wspoczesne Wroclaw, Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art.Carolee Schneemann: Unforgivable is the most thorough visual overview of Schneemann's work to date. Organized by five interrelated categories-Interviews and Correspondence, Painting, Cinema, Sites, and Technological Processes-this volume brings together previously published essays and interviews by authorities on the artist's work. The texts, many scarce or out of print, examine the significance of Schneemann's work in its historical context, and its vital urgency for our present.Contributors: Stephane Aquin, Emily Caigan, R Bruce Elder, Ron Hanson, Juan Carlos Kase, Brett Kashmere, Anette Kubitza, Erica Levin, Scott MacDonald, Thomas McEvilley, Ara Osterweil, Melissa Ragona, Maura Reilly, Kristine Stiles and Kenneth White.

  13. Philip J. Riley - The Black Cat
    In 1934, Universal Pictures released The Black Cat - the first teaming of Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, and the darkest, most sinister horror classic in the studio's legendary canon. MagicImage Filmbooks takes you on a time travel trip back into the shadowy soundstage of this macabre milestone - the facts, the figures, the studio politics, the sinister inspirations, the demonic virtuosity of director Edgar G. Ulmer, the censorship troubles, the personal memories of the leading ladies, a sexual harassment saga almost as perverse as the film itself... and the complex, moving, ultimately tragic relationship of the film's two horror superstars. Included are the pressbook, and many rare and striking photos. Plus: "The BLACK CAT: Universal's Symphony of Horrors, The Film's Music" by Randall D. Larson

  15. Arthur Miller - Death of a Salesman
    Arthur Miller's 1949 Death of a Salesman has sold 11 million copies, and Willy Loman didn't make all those sales on a smile and a shoeshine. This play is the genuine article--it's got the goods on the human condition, all packed into a day in the life of one self-deluded, self-promoting, self-defeating soul. It's a sturdy bridge between kitchen-sink realism and spectral abstraction, the facts of particular hard times and universal themes. As Christopher Bigsby's mildly interesting afterword in this 50th-anniversary edition points out (as does Miller in his memoir, Timebends), Willy is closely based on the playwright's sad, absurd salesman uncle, Manny. But of course Miller made Manny into Everyman, and gave him the name of the crime commissioner, Lohmann, in Fritz Lang's angst-ridden 1932 Nazi parable, The Testament of Dr. Mabuse. The tragedy of Loman the all--American dreamer and loser--works eternally, on the page as on the stage. A lot of plays made history around 1949, but none have stepped out of history into the classic canon as Salesman has. Great as it was, Tennessee Williams' work can't be revived as vividly as this play still is, all over the world. (This edition has edifying pictures of Lee J. Cobb's 1949 and Brian Dennehy's 1999 performances.) It connects Aristotle, The Great Gatsby, On the Waterfront, David Mamet, and the archetypal American movie antihero. It even transcends its author's tragic flaw of pious preachiness (which undoes his snoozy The Crucible, unfortunately his most-produced play). No doubt you've seen Willy Loman's story at least once. It's still worth reading.--Tim Appelo, Amazon.com

In 1820, the whaleship "Essex "was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster. "In the Heart of the Sea" and now, its epic adaptation for the screen will forever place the "Essex "tragedy in the American historical canon. "From the Trade Paperback edition.""

  17. Adrian Daub - The James Bond Songs: Pop Anthems of Late Capitalism
    Starting with 1964's Goldfinger, every James Bond film has followed the same ritual, and so has its audience: after an exciting action sequence the screen goes black and the viewer spends three long minutes absorbing abstract opening credits and a song that sounds like it wants to return to 1964. In The James Bond SongsR authors Adrian Daub and Charles Kronengold use the genre to trace not only a changing cultural landscape, but also evolving conceptions of what a pop song is. They argue that the story of the Bond song is the story of the pop song more generally, and perhaps even the story of its end. Each chapter discusses a particular segment of the Bond canon and contextualizes it in its eras music and culture. But the book also asks how Bond and his music reflected and influenced our feelings about such topics as masculinity, race, money, and aging. Through these individual pieces the book presents the Bond song as the perfect anthem of late capitalism. The Bond songs want to talk about the fulfillment that comes from fast cars, shaken Martinis and mindless sex, but their unstable speakers, subjects, and addressees actually undercut the logic of the lifestyle James Bond is sworn to defend. The book is an invitation to think critically about pop music, about genre, and about the political aspects of popular culture in the twentieth century and beyond.
