Synopsis
This early work, first published in 1915, is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Comprising a comprehensive and detailed look at all aspects of classifying and judging films of the era, The Art of the Moving Picture is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of any film enthusiast or historian of the art. Its 297 pages contain a wealth of information and anecdote on a variety of cinematic themes written by the celebrated American Poet. Contents Include: An Outline Proposed as a Basis for Photoplay Criticism in America – The Point of View; The Photoplay of Action; The Intimate Photoplay; The Motion Picture of Fairy Splendor; The Picture of Crown Splendor; The Picture of Patriotic Splendor; The Picture of Religious Splendor; Sculpture-in-Motion; Painting-in-Motion; Furniture, Trappings, and Inventions in Motion; Architecture-in-Motion; Thirty Differences between the Photoplays and the Stage; Hieroglyphics; More Peronal Speculations and Afterthoughts not Brought forward so Dogmatically – The Orchestra, Conversation, and the Censorship; The Substitute for the Saloon; California and America; Progress and Endowment; Architects as Crusaders; On Coming Forth by Day; The Prophet-Wizard; The Acceptable year of the Lord. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
