Though often unnoted, lighting performs an important function in Hollywood film, enhancing the glamour, clarifying the action, and intensifying the mood. Examining every facet of this understated art form, from the glowing backlights of the silent period to the shaded alleys of film noir, Patrick Keating establishes Hollywood lighting as a distinct compositional force. Enhanced by more than one hundred illustrations, this volume disproves the conventional theory that Hollywood film style took a backseat to storytelling, revealing that the lighting practices of the studio era were anything but neutral, uniform, and invisible. Cinematographers were masters of multifunctionality and negotiation, honing their craft to achieve both realistic fantasy and pictorial artistry

Nearly 60 years after Lewis Carroll´s Alice´s Adventures in Wonderland was first published, a filmmaker named Walt Disney created a silent film about a girl named Alice.

Walt Disney´s Alice in Wonderland: An Illustrated History delves behind-the-scenes of those whimsical worlds.
