Von Sternberg,
John Baxter (Universitätspresse von Kentucky)

Eadweard Muybridge,

Illuminations: Denkwürdige Filmmomente,
Richard D. Pepperman (Michael Wiese Productions)
“An intimate and accessible approach to moving image writing. Richard D. Pepperman sheds fresh light on the resonance of film watching, its relationship to memory and a sense of place. He also helpfully includes critics’ responses to the films – then and now.”

Verschwindende Tricks: Stummfilm, Houdini und die neue Magie des 20. Jahrhunderts, Matthew Solomon (University of Illinois Press)
“A fascinating enquiry into the early history of film, especially as it involved magicians and magic tricks. Matthew Solomon explores spiritualism and suspension of disbelief in a compelling investigation of the integration of cinema into mainstream entertainment.”
