The Parade's Gone By

By: Brownlow, Kevin

Price: $135.00

Publisher: New York, Alfred A. Knopf: 1968

Edition: 1

Seller ID: 15510

Condition: Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket


A fresh approach to film history. Re-creates the earliest days of the movies, how the first moving pictures were actually shot, how the first film makers responded to the new medium untrammeled by rules and conventions, and turned a crude, fumbling gimmick in to an art. Through interviews and almost 300 photographs (some from films, some of the artists at work), Brownlow has produced a vivid, nostalgic, immediate portrait of an art in the making as well as a social history of a free and exciting time. . NEAR FINE/VERY GOOD.. Photographs and frames. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. (5), 577, xiii p... View more info
