Title: Going to the Cinema
Description: London England, Phoenix House, 1957. 3rd Revised Edition, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Good. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall Hardback Hardback. Slight wear and a couple of small tears to D/J. If you are interested in films, in how they are made, in the people who make them and those who act in them, and in discovering just why it is that some films are so much better than others, we think you will enjoy this book. The authors invite you to see what goies on in the studios - how the producer, director, cameraman, scenarist, script writer and lighting experts, as well as the actors, work together to give you the finished picture. Here are explained what to look for in the 'big picture', in news-reels, documentaries, cartoons, interest and travel films, and examples of what the cinema can do, a list of voer 80 of the finest films that have been made. We think you will enjoy the descriptions of how Walt Disney's odd creatures come to life; of how the news-reel men work at great speed and often in very dangerous and difficult places; of how the rooms you see on the screen are planned down to the smallest detail; of what the movie camera sees and how the films are projected on to the screen; of how the editor cuts and joins the hundreds of strips of film to make the action wuick or slow, to heighten the comedy excitement or suspense. You will alos learn something of the ingenious mechanical devices used in making films, and of how the whole huge film industry works. Illustrated with Black and White plates. 160 pp.
