BLACK AND WHITE CINEMA: A SHORT HISTORY. Wheeler Dixon. Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick, 2015. 256 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780813572413 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 169802. Publisher's description: From the glossy monochrome of the classic Hollywood romance, to the gritty greyscale of the gangster picture, to film noir's moody interplay of light and shadow, black-and-white cinematography has been used to create a remarkably wide array of tones. Yet today, with black-and-white film stock nearly impossible to find, these cinematographic techniques are virtually extinct, and filmgoers' appreciation of them is similarly waning. Black and White Cinema is the first study to consider the use of black-and-white as an art form in its own right, providing a comprehensive and global overview of the era when it flourished, from the 1900s to the 1960s.
