He contributed to a number of publications, among them The Kenyon Review, The American Scholar, The Sewanee Review, Ten New Criterion, and The Hudson Review, for which journal he became the regular film critic in 1955. He published two books of film criticism in his lifetime: Cinema Borealis: Ingmar Bergman and the Swedish Ethos (1971) and On Film: Unpopular Essays on a Popular Art (1972). The latteró nominated for a National Book Awardówas made up of pieces that had originally appeared in several magazines, The Hudson Review prominent among them.

About the Author:

Bert Cardullo is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Richmond, Virginia.

Review:

Vernon Young is not only one of the rare film critics who are both vigorous and civilized, but also one whose writing demands the liveliest, most fruitful response from his readers. You cannot read him without learning from him very pleasurably, or arguing with him equally enjoyably. I have done both, and am in his debt no less for the one than for the other. (John Simon)
