BROWNLOW, KEVIN
The Parade's Gone by
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1968. 1. Hard Cover. A fresh approach to film history. Re-creates the earliest days of the movies, how the first moving pictures were actually shot, how the first film makers responded to the new medium untrammeled by rules and conventions, and turned a crude, fumbling gimmick in to an art. Through interviews and almost 300 photographs (some from films, some of the artists at work), Brownlow has produced a vivid, nostalgic, immediate portrait of an art in the making as well as a social history of a free and exciting time. NEAR FINE/VERY GOOD.. Photographs and frames. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. (5), 577, xiii pp. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket .
