Written by two leading film scholars, "Film History: An Introduction" is a comprehensive survey of film-from the backlots of Hollywood, across the United States, and around the world. As in the authors' bestselling "Film Art", concepts and events are illustrated with actual frame enlargements, giving students more realistic points of reference than competing books that use publicity stills.
