In September 1996 a Frenchman, so little known in English football that fans asked "Arsene Who?", walked into Arsenal. In the subsequent 22 years as manager he transformed the club. A total renovation of the training, stadium, style, economics of the team and the attraction of a global audience has taken place under Wenger's instruction. This fascinating era is chronicled from the very beginning with distinctive photographs taken from inside the inner sanctum of the club by official Arsenal photographer Stuart MacFarlane, who has had privileged access for many years. Award winning journalist Amy Lawrence introduces each section to set the scene. This captivating collection of images is captioned with personal anecdotes from Arsene Wenger himself as he reminisces about the significant moments and people that have defined his time at the club.

FOREWORD BY THIERRY HENRY ____________________ Anfield, May 26th 1989. The final day of the Division One season. The rest of football stopped to watch as perennial champions Liverpool took on rank outsiders Arsenal in a head-to-head contest for the title. With the Gunners leading 1-0 but desperately needing another goal to take the title, it was, in the immortal words of commentator Brian Moore, 'up for grabs now...' Set against the backdrop of Hillsborough disaster, and during an emotional era in football long before the Premier League as we now know it, 89 is an oral history of a sporting moment so unusual it felt instantly historic. Drawing on years of research, writer Amy Lawrence brings together fascinating and never-before seen testimony from the voices who were there, on the pitch, off it, and beyond. 89 creates a definitive and kaleidoscopic portrait of a match, and an iconic moment in English football that changed the sport forever. Drawing on years of research and interviews, writer Amy Lawrence brings together fascinating and never-before heard testimonies from the voices who were there on the pitch, including captain Tony Adams, goalscorers Alan Smith and Mickey Thomas, manager George Graham and many more. Also featured are accounts from those off the pitch, including Arsenal legend Ian Wright, super-fans Nick Hornby, Alan Davies and Dermot O'Leary, and Gunners from across the globe recounting where and how they watched, and the lasting effect this seminal games has had on their lives. ____________________ 'This book is essential reading for Arsenal fans' Nostalgic Gooner blog

The constellation of Hollywood stars burned brightly in the 1950s, even as the industry fell on hard economic times. Major artists of the 1940s--James Stewart, Jerry Lewis, and Gregory Peck--continued to exert a magical appeal but the younger generation of moviegoers was soon enthralled by an emerging cast, led by James Dean and Marlon Brando. They, among others, ushered in a provocative acting style, "the Method," bringing hard-edged, realistic performances to the screen. Adult-oriented small-budget dramas were ideal showcases for Method actors, startlingly realized when Brando seized the screen in On the Waterfront. But, with competition from television looming, Hollywood also featured film-making of epic proportion--Ben-Hur and other cinema wonders rode onto the screen with amazing spectacle, making stars of physically impressive performers such as Charlton Heston.
"Larger Than Life" offers a comprehensive view of the star system in 1950s Hollywood and also in-depth discussions of the decade's major stars, including Montgomery Clift, Judy Holliday, Jerry Lewis, James Mason, Marilyn Monroe, Kim Novak, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, Jayne Mansfield, and Audrey Hepburn.

From his 1948 film debut in "Red River" through such classics as "The Heiress", "A Place in the Sun", and "From Here to Eternity", Montgomery Clift exemplified a new masculinity and - leading the way for a generation of actors, including Marlon Brando and James Dean - epitomized the new naturalistic style of acting. Clift's impact was such that, both during his troubled life and after his untimely death, fans described the actor in religious terms, characterizing Clift as a vision, acolyte, and martyr. In "The Passion of Montgomery Clift", Amy Lawrence challenges the myth of Clift as tragic victim by examining Clift's participation in the manipulation of his image, his collaborations with directors, his relationships with co-stars, and his interactions with writers.

The Films of Peter Greenaway is the first critical overview of one of the most controversial contemporary film-makers. Trained as an artist, Greenaway began his career in cinema as an editor of government-sponsored films. He began to attract critical attention in 1980 with his epic mock-documentary The Falls, the first British film to be named Best Film by the British Film Institute in 30 years. Since then he has created the wittily elegant The Draughtsman's Contract, the strikingly unconventional Shakespearean adaptation Prospero's Books, and the disturbingly violent The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover. In-depth analyses of these and several other of Greenaway's most important works are examined within the context of the director's biography and artistic goals. This edition also includes stills from Greenaway's feature films, as well as his own drawings.

Echo and Narcissus - Women's Voices in Classical Hollywood Cinema (Paperback): Amy Lawrence Echo and Narcissus - Women's Voices in Classical Hollywood Cinema (Paperback)
Amy Lawrence
R785 Discovery Miles 7 850 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Do women in classical Hollywood cinema ever truly speak for themselves? In "Echo and Narcissus", Amy Lawrence examines eight classic films to show how women's speech is repeatedly constructed as a 'problem', an affront to male authority. This book expands feminist studies of the representation of women in film, enabling us to see individual films in new ways, and to ask new questions of other films. Using "Sadie Thompson" (1928), "Blackmail" (1929), "Rain" (1932), "The Spiral Staircase", "Sorry, Wrong Number", "Notorious", "Sunset Boulevard" (1950) and "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962), Lawrence illustrates how women's voices are positioned within narratives that require their submission to patriarchal roles and how their attempts to speak provoke increasingly severe repression. She also shows how women's natural ability to speak is interrupted, made difficult, or conditioned to a suffocating degree by sound technology itself. Telephones, phonographs, voice-overs, and dubbing are fore grounded, called upon to silence women and to restore the primacy of the image. Unlike the usage of 'voice' by feminist and literary critics to discuss broad issues of authorship and point of view, in film studies the physical voice itself is a primary focus. "Echo and Narcissus" shows how assumptions about the 'deficiencies' of women's voices and speech are embedded in sound's history, technology, uses and marketing. Moreover, the construction of the woman's voice is inserted into the ideologically loaded cinematic and narrative conventions governing the representation of women in Hollywood film.
