[a nice clean tight copy, with just modest wear to the extremities of both the book and the dust jacket]. (B&W photographs) A major general history of the American silent film, by one of the most eminent experts in the field. Everson wrote many books and scads of articles on film history, but I think it's fair to consider this book his magnum opus, and to regard its inclusion in the noted bibliography "100 Books on Hollywood and the Movies" as entirely appropriate. As stated in the jacket blurb, the author combined "a film enthusiast's passion and a scholar's dedication and erudition" in advancing his thesis that the silent film was "an art in itself, substantially different from the sound film that developed from it." Even thirty years after its publication, it remains an essential work for anyone interested in that period of American film history. **** NOTE that additional postage charges will be assessed for international shipping of this moderately heavy book; if this concerns you, please contact us for a shipping quote before placing your order. ****
