Jacques Tourneur

by Chris Fujiwara, Jacques Tourneur Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jacques Tourneur books, At least three of director Jacques Tourneur’s films—Cat People, I Walked with a Zombie and The Leopard Man—are recognized as horror classics. Yet his contributions to these films are often minimized by scholars, with most of the credit going to the films’ producer, Val Lewton. A detailed examination of the director’s full body of work reveals that those elements most evident in the Tourneur-Lewton collaborations—the lack of monsters and the stylized use of suggested violence—are equally apparent in Tourneur’s films before and after his work with Lewton. Mystery and sensuality were hallmarks of his style, and he possessed a highly artistic visual and aural style. This insightful critical study examines each of Tourneur’s films, as well as his extensive work on MGM shorts (1936–1942) and in television. What emerges is evidence of a highly coherent directorial style that runs throughout Tourneur’s works.

John Gilbert

by Eve Golden, John Gilbert Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download John Gilbert books, Charming and classically handsome, John Gilbert (1897--1936) was among the world's most recognizable actors during the silent era. He was a wild, swashbuckling figure on screen and off, and accounts of his life have focused on his high-profile romances with Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, his legendary conflicts with Louis B. Mayer, his four tumultuous marriages, and his swift decline after the introduction of talkies. A dramatic and interesting personality, Gilbert served as one of the primary inspirations for the character of George Valentin in the Academy Award--winning movie The Artist (2011). Many myths have developed around the larger-than-life star in the eighty years since his untimely death, but this definitive biography sets the record straight. Eve Golden separates fact from fiction in John Gilbert: The Last of the Silent Film Stars, tracing the actor's life from his youth spent traveling with his mother in acting troupes to the peak of fame at MGM, where he starred opposite Mae Murray, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, and other actresses in popular films such as TheMerry Widow (1925), The Big Parade (1925), Flesh and the Devil (1926), and Love (1927). Golden debunks some of the most pernicious rumors about the actor, including the oft-repeated myth that he had a high-pitched, squeaky voice that ruined his career. Meticulous, comprehensive, and generously illustrated, this book provides a behind-the-scenes look at one of the silent era's greatest stars and the glamorous yet brutal world in which he lived.

Maurice Tourneur

by Eric Bonnefille, Maurice Tourneur Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Maurice Tourneur books, Maurice Tourneur commence sa carrière de réalisateur dans les studios Éclair, à la veille de la Première Guerre mondiale. Envoyé à New York en 1914, il y devient l'un des plus brillants novateurs du cinéma américain. À Hollywood, il impose son talent et ses goûts d'indépendance mais se retrouve confronté au système contraignant des grands studios. Revenu en Europe en 1926, il se bâtit une nouvelle réputation dans le cinéma français, dirigeant quelques-unes des plus grandes vedettes de l'écran, de Harry Baur à Danielle Darrieux. Jalonnée d'une centaine de films, sa vie est aussi marquée par les heurts de l'Histoire, de la tentation anarchiste des années 1900 à l'univers ambigu du cinéma français sous l'Occupation.
