Description: The seventh edition of A Short History of the Movies continues the tradition that has made it one of the most popular books ever in film history. This volume offers students a panoramic overview of the worldwide development of film, from the early Mack Sennett and Charlie Chaplin shorts, through the studio heyday of the 1930s and 1940s and the Hollywood Renaissance of the 1960s and 1970s, to the pictures and their technology appearing in the multiplexes of today. This new edition, which has been revised and rewritten to reflect current scholarship and recent industry developments, and new films and filmmakers, represents an accurate, scrupulous updating of a classic.

Features an emphasis on key historical and aesthetic principles provides solid scholarship in an accessible, intelligent, and readable format. Includes almost 500 color and black-and-white photographs including frame enlargements and production stills. Includes evaluations of great works from such directors as Griffith, Ford, Scorsese, and Hitchcock illuminates conflicts and controversies in many areas of filmmaking. Also features extensive treatment of international film enables comparison and contrast between American films and those of other countries, particularly Germany, Russia, France, Italy, and China.
