  • Sunset Boulevardby Billy Wilder

    University of California Press 1999; US$ 26.95

    Sunset Boulevard (1950) is one of the most famous films in the history of Hollywood, and perhaps no film better represents Hollywood's vision of itself.

Together they created a film both allusive and literate, with... more...

  • Chaplin's "Limelight" and the Music Hall Traditionby Frank Scheide; Hooman Mehran; Dan Kamin

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2006; US$ 49.95

    Charles Spencer Chaplin was a stage performer before he was a filmmaker, and it was in English music hall that he learned the rudiments of his art.
