Films of the Year: 1927-1928 (First Edition)
The Studio 1928 Ltd, London - First Edition. Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket.From an era when most film books tended to be focused on the wrong actors, the wrong films, and the wrong directors, this title may stand above all others in terms of pure predictive genius, as well as quality of presentation. Looking only at the films of 1927-1928 and beginning with an essay completely devoid of pretension, Herring's book focuses on cinema as an art form rather than an entertainment, with a strict focus on the directors he considers to be the leaders in the field, including Charlie Chaplin, Man Ray, G.W. Pabst, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Borzage, Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau, Erich Pommer, Raoul Walsh, Rex Ingram, Fritz Werdhausen, Herik Galison, Constantin Eggert, Edwin Carewe, Herbert Brenon, Victor Seastrom, Ludwig Berger, Karl Koch, Fred Niblo,Gustav Pauli, Franz Koch, and Francis Bruguiere. The introductory essay is followed by 32 full-page duotone plates featuring stunning still images from the films of the directors noted. Laid in are two advertisements for other books by the publisher, and a vintage label from a French bookseller is present at the bottom right corner of the front pastedown. A cornerstone volume for any library on world cinema. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
