The merging of still photography with mechanized projection instruments in the late nineteenth century gave us what became the rich & exciting art of cinema. Here is its story, starting with the Lumiere brothers in Paris & Thomas Edison in America. Early experiments evolved into film classics such as THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY (1903), the Mack Sennett, Charlie Chaplin, & Buster Keaton comedies, the expressionist films of Fritz Lang & Sergey Eisenstein, & the early "talkies." A century of film-making is reviewed in words & pictures that cover the comedies, musicals, & drama. Readers learn how film-making technique has changed over time, from the magic lantern to advanced methods of computer animation, rear projection, Technicolor, 3D, special effects, camera panning & perspective, script-writing & directing.
