♥ Book Title : Crime and Spy Jazz on Screen, 1950-1970
☯ Full Synopsis : "Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn theme. Lalo Schifrin's Mission: Impossible theme. John Barry's arrangement of the James Bond theme. These iconic melodies have remained a part of the pop culture landscape since their debuts in the late 1950s and early '60s: a "golden decade" that highlighted an era when movie studios and TV production companies employed full orchestral ensembles to provide a jazz backdrop for the suspenseful adventures of secret agents, private detectives, cops, spies and heist-minded criminals. Hundreds of additional films and television shows made during this period were propelled by similarly swinging title themes and underscores, many of which have (undeservedly) faded into obscurity. This meticulously researched book traces the embryonic use of jazz in mainstream entertainment from the early 1950s--when conservative viewers still considered this genre "the devil's music"--to its explosive heyday throughout the 1960s. Fans frustrated by the lack of attention paid to jazz soundtrack composers--including Jerry Goldsmith, Edwin Astley, Roy Budd, Quincy Jones, Dave Grusin, Jerry Fielding and many, many others--will find solace in these pages (along with all the information needed to enhance one's music library). The exploration of action jazz continues in this book's companion volume, Crime and Action Jazz on Screen Since 1971."Article| Derrick Bang| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Sébastien Japrisot
☯ Full Synopsis : "Influential author of highly unconventional crime fiction, screenwriter, and occasional film director, Sébastien Japrisot was one of those rare contemporary writers in France able to establish an international reputation for himself. Although Japrisot’s novels in particular continue to be read and studied across the world, this volume is the first ever academic study of Japrisot’s work in the fields of both literature and cinema. Through a combination of thematic and text-specific studies, this volume takes in, and examines the legacy of, Japrisot’s work from his youthful writings under his real name, Jean-Baptiste Rossi, to his crime fiction and screen writings of the 1960s and 1970s, concluding with his final novel Un long dimanche de fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement). It is both an essential introduction to Japrisot and a valuable academic assessment of his work’s importance in the field of contemporary French literature and film."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : New Approaches to Crime in French Literature, Culture and Film
☯ Full Synopsis : "The notion of crime crosses generic, disciplinary and cultural frontiers. In an era of identity fraud, eco-crime and global terrorism, this collection moves towards a reconsideration of crime in the French and Francophone literary and cultural imagination. How have our conceptions of 'criminal' behaviour developed? How has the French genre of crime fiction, encompassing, but not limited to, the polar, the roman policier and film noir, evolved and reinvented itself? The volume adopts a number of theoretical approaches, which range from sociological and criminological discourse to literary criticism and postcolonial theory (by Chamoiseau, Durkheim, Deleuze, Foucault, Glissant, Krafft-Ebing and Todorov). In a wide-ranging series of innovative and challenging readings, it examines ideas which include the evolving concept of crime in literature from Voltaire and censorship through to scientific constructions of criminality in the nineteenth century and in the postcolonial era, both within and outside metropolitan France. The volume also explores 'textual crimes' in contemporary Martinican women's writing, crime as a genre in André Héléna, Serge Arcouët and Jean Meckert, Sébastien Japrisot and Dominique Manotti, and visual responses to crime by artist Jacques Monory and filmmaker Didier Bivel."Article| Louise Hardwick| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Film and Television Scores, 1950Ð1979
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hollywood film scores underwent a supersonic transformation from the 1950s through the 1970s. This genre-by-genre overview of film and television soundtrack music covers a period of tremendous artistic and commercial development in the medium. Film and television composers bypassed the classical tradition favored by earlier screen composers to experiment with jazz, rock, funk and avant-garde styles. This bold approach brought a rich variety to film and television productions that often took on a life of its own through records and CDs. From Bernard Herrmann to Ennio Morricone, the composers of the “Silver Age” changed the way movie music was made, used, and heard. The book contains more than 100 promotional film stills and soundtrack cover art images."Article| Kristopher Spencer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Simone Signoret
☯ Full Synopsis : "In what may be the most in-depth study yet published of a film star's body of work, Susan Hayward charts the career of Simone Signoret, one of the great Frech actresses of the 20th Century.Signoret- who won an Oscar in 1960 for her performance in Room at the Top- was a key figure in French cinema for 40 years. But it is not so much her longevity that impresses, as it is the quality of work she produced as her career progressed. She started out as a stunningly beautiful woman, winning major international awards five times for her roles, and yet was only moderately in demand during those years. From the 1960s onwards, when her looks began to decline significantly, Signoret was in greater demand, and produced most of her output. She insisted on playing roles consonant with her real age, and often chose to play roles that portrayed wher as even more ugly than she had become.Simore Signoret: The Star as Cultural Sign is a remarkable achievement, a labor of love from one of the world's leading scholars of French cinema."Article| Susan Hayward| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Railways and Culture in Britain
☯ Full Synopsis : "The 19th-century steam railway epitomized modernity's relentlessly onrushing advance. Ian Carter delves into the cultural impact of the train. Why, for example, did Britain possess no great railway novel? He compares fiction and images by canonical British figures (Turner, Dickens, Arnold Bennett) with selected French and Russian competitors: Tolstoy, Zola, Monet, Manet. He argues that while high cultural work on the British steam railway is thin, British popular culture did not ignore it. Detailed discussions of comic fiction, crime fiction, and cartoons reveal a popular fascination with railways tumbling from vast (and hitherto unexplored) stores of critically overlooked genres."Article| Ian Carter| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Kino, Wehikuł Magiczny - Podroz Trzecia
☯ Full Synopsis : "Co czyni filmy Orsona Wellesa, Akiry Kurosawy, Roberta Bressona, Stanleya Kubricka dziełami sztuki? Co jest objawieniem ich wizji osobistej, stylu, sztuki reżyserskiej? Które filmy fabularne w kinie XX wieku udały się najbardziej w proporcji do zamierzeń i są szczególnie warte zobaczenia? Tytuł tej książki ma oddać jej charakter i formę: zamiar oddania medium kina, jego równoczesnej aktualności i ponadczasowości, konkretu i magicznej poezji w opisie zawierającym podwójną perspektywę – czasu, w którym filmy powstały, i dzisiejszego spojrzenia w podróży przez przeszłość. Celem nie jest ani zgłębienie wiedzy o całości sztuki filmowej – tym zajmują się, z coraz większym wysiłkiem, historie kina – ani dokładna analiza twórczości mistrzów: to jest staraniem monografii. „Kino, wehikuł magiczny” ma natomiast ambicje dać możliwie najdokładniejsze informacje o treści wybranych konsekwentnie filmów i w pełni wiarygodne dane o głównych autorach i wykonawcach. Całość podzielona została na pięć części; w sumie omówionych zostało ponad 1500 filmów (blisko 400 w tomie I i po około 300 w następnych); wybór w ramach kina XX wieku uzupełnia wymienienie blisko 1000 najbardziej wartościowych z lat 1982-2000. W stosunku do wydań książkowych „Kina, wehikułu magicznego” dokonane zostały pewne zmiany w wyborze, dane czołówkowe zostały zaś możliwie najściślej skorygowane."Article| Adam Garbicz| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Joie de Vivre in French Literature and Culture
☯ Full Synopsis : "The apparent self-sufficiency of joie de vivre means that, despite the widespread use of the phrase since the late nineteenth century, the concept has rarely been explored critically.Joie de vivre does not readily surrender itself to examination, for it is in a sense too busy being what it is. However, as the essays in this collection reveal,joie de vivre can be as complex and variable a state as the more negative emotions or experiences that art and literature habitually evoke. This volume provides an urgently needed study of an intriguing and under-explored area of French literature and culture from the Middle Ages to the contemporary era. While the range and content of contributions embraces linguistics, literature, art, sport and politics, the starting point is, like that of the termjoie de vivre itself, in French language and culture.This volume will be of special interest to researchers across the full range of French studies, from literature and language to cultural studies. It will be of direct appeal to specialist readers, university libraries, graduate and undergraduate students, and general readers with a lively interest in French literature and culture of the medieval, early modern and broad modern periods. This book's fresh perspectives on the theme ofjoie de vivre and its relation to questions of privacy, contemplation, voyeurism, feasting and nationhood will also be of relevance to researchers in comparative and cognate disciplines."Article| Susan Harrow| Statement ..."
