[minor wear, nice clean copy, some partially-erased writing in blue ink at top of front cover]. (B&W photographs) In this issue: "The Cinema Delimina: Films from the Underground," by Stan Vanderbeek; "Forbidden Fruit: The Nazi Feature Film, 1933-1945," by David Stewart Hull; and "Yugoslav Short Films," by Donald Richie. Especially interesting is the fourth article, "An American Film Institute: A Proposal," by Colin Young, a lengthy piece which represents an early conceptual floating of the idea of a national film institute that would ultimately come to fruition about six years later. (This proposal, however, predates the National Endowment for the Arts, under which the AFI was eventually established; that federally-funded agency wasn't created until 1965. At this time, the idea was that this nascent AFI would be created as a nonprofit cultural organization under the auspices of the State of California.) Also in this issue, lengthy reviews of the following films: L'AVVENTURA (Michelangelo Antonioni), LA DOLCE VITA (Federico Fellini), SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING (Karel Reisz), and ONE-EYES JACKS (Marlon Brando).
