Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

This first book-length critical examina-tion of nuclear war motion pictures--feature films, documentaries, and edu-cational short films--in addition to recognizing a new film genre reflects an important era of modern film history. Taken as a whole, the 25 contributions by 21 film specialists brought together here provide a comprehensive view of 32 feature films, documentaries, and educational short films comprising a representative selection of the new genre--all produced between 1946 and 1975by American, French, British, and Japanese film makers. In addition to discussions of such well-known films as "On the Beach," " Hiroshima," " Mon Amour," ""and "Dr.Strangelove," ""the collection ana-lyzes and comments on a number of less well known but important films such as "A Thousand Cranes," " Countdown to Zero," and "To Die, To Live," ""documentaries and educational short films that hitherto have been inadequately presented in cinema literature. Marshall Flaum, one of the outstand-ing figures in the field of television documentaries, has provided an unu-sually interesting Foreword, and Jack Shaheen, the editor of the volume, has added a perceptive Preface and has appended a list of distributors and credits. A major contribution to the serious study of the nuclear war film genre, the book thus provides an analytic text with apparatus and notes, and will be of in-terest to general readers as well as stu-dents of the film and film makers.
