The Tenth Edition of A Short History of the Movies continues the tradition—scrupulously accurate in its details, up-to-date, free of jargon—that has made it the most widely adopted textbook for college courses in film history. This volume offers students a panoramic overview of the worldwide development of film through the studio heyday of the 1930s and 1940s and the "Hollywood Renaissance" of the 1960s and 1970s, to the pictures and technology appearing in multiplexes and living rooms of today. This new edition, wich as been revised and rewritten to reflect current scholarship, recent industry developments, and new films and filmmakers, represents an accurate, scrupulous updating of a classic.


The film history textbook reveals significant trends in movie making through sections devoted to specific time periods and countries. The seventh edition adds discussion of new films, filmmakers, and national cinemas, as well as technical and business developments. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
