Leni Riefenstahl and Olympia (Paperback, New edition): Cooper C. Graham Leni Riefenstahl and Olympia (Paperback, New edition)
Cooper C. Graham
R1,421 Discovery Miles 14 210 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

New in Paper! Leni Riefenstahl's four-hour film, Olympia, a major propaganda achievement of Nazi Germany in the 1930's, deals with the Eleventh Olympic Games that were held in Berlin in 1936. Olympia is also perhaps the best German film produced during the National Socialist period. Graham has scrutinized the history of the film and shows that it was deeply involved with the regime, both in its stages of production and in its later distribution. He also argues that the film can be regarded as a masterpiece of propaganda, and further, that virtually any work of this nature is bound to have a propaganda effect, whether intended or not. The author relates the film's subsequent history against the background of the worsening political situation in Europe. The events leading up to World War II were to have a profound effect on the future of the film. Aside from the political issues, the book describes the fascinating story of the making of an epic film. The book will be of value to film historians, sports scholars, and those interested in the history and culture of Nazi Germany. Available in paperback 2002. Cloth version previously published in 1986.

In the early days of World War I, a secret film campaign was brought to the United States. In an effort to control public opinion in this important neutral country, German officials set up the American Correspondent Film Company. As a front man for this covert operation, photographer Albert K. Dawson was sent to Berlin. Dawson's camera covered the troops all the way from Flanders' mud to the gates of Przemysl, Poland. Based on many years of research, the authors have uncovered Dawson's fascinating life and work as a war photographer, as well as his films and the way his pictures were used by the German government for foreign propaganda. The story on Dawson allows us the unique opportunity to follow an American cameraman into the trenches of Armageddon - the Great War.

Love and Loss in Hollywood - Florence Deshon, Max Eastman, and Charlie Chaplin (Paperback): Cooper C. Graham, Christoph Irmscher Love and Loss in Hollywood - Florence Deshon, Max Eastman, and Charlie Chaplin (Paperback)
Cooper C. Graham, Christoph Irmscher
R929 R871 Discovery Miles 8 710 Save R58 (6%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In 1919, Florence Deshon-tall, radical, and charismatic-was well on her way to becoming one of Hollywood's brightest stars. Embroiled in a clandestine affair with Charlie Chaplin, she continued to remain romantically involved with the well-known writer and socialist Max Eastman. By 1922, she was found dead in a New York apartment, rumored to have committed suicide. Love and Loss in Hollywood: Florence Deshon, Max Eastman, and Charlie Chaplin uses previously unpublished letters between Deshon and Eastman to reconstruct their relationship against the backdrop of the "golden age" of Hollywood. Deshon's tragic life and her abuse at the hands of powerful men-including Chaplin, Eastman, and Samuel Goldwyn-resonate with the concerns of today's MeToo movement. Above all, though, this is a book about an extraordinary woman unjustly forgotten: a brilliant writer and campaigner for women's rights, driven both by her ambition to succeed and a boundless desire for life. Rich in tantalizing detail, Love and Loss in Hollywood chronicles crucial years of American film history, overshadowed by the pervasive fear of Bolshevism after World War I, the Red Riots, and the emergence of the big studios in Hollywood. This beautiful edition features dozens of unpublished photographs, among them six mesmerizing full-length portraits of Deshon by Adolph de Meyer, Vogue's first fashion photographer.

The Biograph Company was the most influential American film studio of its time. In 1908 D.W. Griffith, the most important filmmaker in the history of world cinema, joined the company. Until late 1913 he served as Biograph's leading director and/or production supervisor for over 800 films. This fundamental reference guide details that work. Each film is fully documented, with production information, cast, and credits. Biograph refused to release the names of its players but here, for the first time, all of those players, major and minor, are authoritatively identified. With complete cross-index.
