Product Description

Review

'Sarah Street's groundbreaking study is that rare film history text which is at once absolutely authoritative, and pitched at a very high level in terms of discourse, but still readily accessible to the general reader. In addition, the volume is richly — and I mean intensely – illustrated with numerous, exquisitely printed frame blowups from the many films it examines, all in full color, and Street's analysis of the development of color, not only in the commercial British cinema, but also in the the experimental work of artists such as Len Lye, is meticulous and detailed.' - Wheeler Winston Dixon, Ryan Professor of Film Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA, 'Framd by Frame', UNiversity of Nebraska-Lincoln's Film Blog http://blog.unl.edu/dixon/2012/12/26/colour-films-in-britain-the-negotiation-of-innovation-1900-1955/

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is with some trepidation that I buy books friom the BFI catalogue.They are a very mixed bunch.The books on British B films are excellent.This book however is a different case.The problem with this book is the text and the way the book is set out.Unfortunately all too often this book lapses into what I term "Acadamese".A language spoken by an elite few academics which rather excludes the ordinary reader.For some strange reason they relegate to Appendix 2 an explanation of the technical terms rather than making this the first chapter of the book.So you don't know your subtractive process from your addadtive process.There is little in the way of photos of equipment to assist.No photo of the 2 lens Kinemacolour projector or copy of the film which had alternate red and green frames.No photo of the revoloutionary Technicolour camera.No detailed explanation as to how the 2 colour Technicolour system differed from the 3 colour sytem.Just pages and pages of dry,dull and boring text.There are some good frame enlargements and that is the best that can be said for this disappointing book.
