KIRKUS REVIEW

Pictures, chronologically arranged, whose captions underline the development of the cinematic art, from technical angles. From 1835 to 1941, the record of the rapid advance in all fields -mechanics, acting, makeup, lighting, script, careers, serials, personalities, with the stills telling their own story, highlighting the various years, in the U.S. only, and the origins of today's sound, animated cartoons, stories adapted from books, documentary films, etc. The genius of Griffith, the influence of DeMille, the outstanding performances (of writers, directors, technicians, as well as actors) of the years. Good reference material, entertainingly presented.
