About this title

Synopsis:

Series Editor: Frank Beaver, University of MichiganThis series explores the history of motion pictures by studying individual filmmakers and cinematic movements, illuminating the most significant aspects of film for the student, scholar, and general reader.Tonetti writes an engaging study in which Viscontis life is blended into a detailed, film-by-film discussion of his work. From his unlikely beginning as the proprietor of a successful horseracing stable in Italy, Vicsonti came to be universally revered for such films as Death in Venice, Gtterdmmerung, and White Nights by the time of his death in 1976. A mixed reception with government censors eventually led him abroad from his native Italy. In France, Visconti met and admired filmmakers Jean Cocteau and Jean Renoir, and upon his return to Italy his craft had gained further breadth as he worked with an increasingly worldly ensemble, like actor Burt Lancaster and conductor Leonard Bernstein.The Twayne Filmmakers Series provides students with rich opportunities for studying individual filmmakers, national cinema, and filmmaking technique. Books in the Filmmakers Series are written by major film scholars, historians, and critics who bring their special insights to a highly diverse collection of studies about the twentieth centurys major art form: the motion picture.Frank Beaver, Series Editor
