McFarland, 10.01.2014 - 277 Seiten
One of the most versatile Hollywood filmmmakers, Robert Wise had a number of renowned films under his directorial belt, including The Day The Earth Stood Still, West Side Story, The Sound of Music, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Nonetheless, Wise remains a rarely studied Hollywood figure—while many filmgoers know and love his films, few recognize his name. This book, the first in-depth analysis of Wise’s cinematic achievement, uncovers the elements that link the director’s diverse cinematic subjects and examines the ways in which tensions between individuals and their societies are explored. His films are seen from a new perspective that will heighten an appreciation for the range and depth of his overall body of work.
