Written by two of the leading film scholars, Film History: An Introduction, is the long-awaited, comprehensive survey that not only acknowledges the contributions of Hollywood and films from other U.S. sources, but broadens its scope to examine filmmaking internationally. As with the authors' bestselling Film Art, Fifth Edition, concepts and events are illustrated with actual frame enlargements, giving students more realistic points of reference than competing books that use publicity stills. Any serious film scholar -- professor, undergraduate, or graduate student -- will want to see and keep Film History.
