Harold and Maude (Paperback): Colin Higgins Harold and Maude (Paperback)

Nineteen-year-old Harold Chasen is obsessed with death. He fakes suicides to shock his self-obsessed mother, drives a customized Jaguar hearse, and attends funerals of complete strangers. Seventy-nine-year-old Maude Chardin, on the other hand, adores life. She liberates trees from city sidewalks and transplants them to the forest, paints smiles on the faces of church statues, and "borrows" cars to remind their owners that life is fleeting-here today, gone tomorrow! A chance meeting between the two turns into a madcap, whirlwind romance, and Harold learns that life is worth living. Harold and Maude started as Colin Higgins' master's thesis at UCLA Film School, and the script was purchased by Paramount. The film, directed by Hal Ashby, was released in 1971 and it bombed. But soon this quirky, dark comedy began being shown on college campuses and at midnight-movie theaters, and it gained a loyal cult following. This novelization was written by Higgins and published shortly after the film's release but has been out of print for more than 30 years. Even fans who have seen the movie dozens of times will find this companion valuable, as it gives fresh elements to watch for and answers many of the film's unresolved questions.

We now catalog in a post-AACR2 world. RDA: Resource Description and Access is designed to cover all types of content and media, but communities of practice are still evolving for motion picture and video materials. This handbook clarifies the protocol for DVDs and Blu-ray discs, expanding upon established guidelines for AACR2 and integrating them into the new standard. Along the way, Higgins introduces the fundamentals of filmmaking, including its history and technical vocabulary, providing context that will help catalogers quickly find the information relevant to their bibliographic records. Organized by familiar MARC 21 fields, this comprehensive reference walks readers through such topics as Unraveling the complexity of film and the ways it is packaged and presented on optical disc, to help quickly determine the title statement and statement of responsibility Explaining the roles of the individuals and organizations involved in the creation and publication of film, and where to record them in catalog records Deciphering the technical terms and abbreviations used on DVDs and Blu-ray discs Using subject and genre headings Cataloging television and streaming media Dealing with unusual formats, such as videotape and reels of photochemical film Outlining the MARC 21 fields where AACR2 practices differed from RDA With the expert guidance contained in this book, readers will learn how to apply RDA instructions to the cataloging of every type of film and video collection, whatever the medium.

Harold and Maude - A Play in Two Acts (Paperback): Colin Higgins Harold and Maude - A Play in Two Acts (Paperback)

This is a stage adaptation of the movie about the suicidal 19 year old boy who finally learns how to truly live when he meets that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude. Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times, though these incidents are more cries for attention than actual attempts. His peculiar attachment to Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him and what captivates us. This stage version, a hit in France directed by the internationally renowned Jean Louis Barrault, will certainly delight both aficionados of the film and new comers to the story.

Social and Environmental Reporting (Paperback): Colin Higgins Social and Environmental Reporting (Paperback)

Recently business organisations have enthusiastically embraced social and environmental reporting, but questions are starting to emerge about the effects this type of reporting has on organisational or social change. In this book, Dr Colin Higgins examines language and textual strategies that suggest business organisations can use social/environmental reporting to shape broader social understandings about the responsible or sustainable corporation. The insights show new ways in which business organisations resist fundamental social change. Importantly, the book argues that stakeholder groups, equipped with new awareness of language use, can construct new ways to target unsustainable business practice.
