Book excerpt: Immortal Austria was the title of a theatrical pageant devised by Austrian refugees in wartime London, the name summarizing their collective memory of their homeland as a country of mountain scenery, historical grandeur and musical refinement. The reality of the country they had left, and the one to which some of them returned, was very different. This volume contains various studies of the representations of their homeland in the cultural production of Austrian exiles, including those projected by émigrés working in the British film industry, those portrayed in the historical novel and in the literary works of such notable authors as Stefan Zweig, Elias Canetti and Robert Neumann. It opens with a survey of the make-up of the Austrian exile community and concludes with a study of attitudes to returning exiles, as reflected in the post-war literary journals. The volume thus offers students and teachers a vital cultural link between the pre-1934 Austria of the First Republic and the post-1945 Austria of the Second.

This book was released on 2021-07-31 with total page pages. Book excerpt: From 1994 to 2008, I was the host of The Michael Dante Classic Celebrity Talk Show in Palm Springs, California. My wife, Mary Jane and I recorded 265 captivating radio interviews with the top classic celebrities from the world of entertainment and sports. Together, known as ‘Team Dante,’ we developed and co-produced a unique one-of-a-kind radio show. This exceptional collection is a personal experience; an insight into the lives of some of the world’s most creative, intelligent and famous people. There were two things I learned very quickly about hosting a radio show with celebrity stars from motion pictures, television, stage, sports and entertainment. First and foremost, you have to do your homework. Be prepared to know who you are talking with, their background, accomplishments, likes and dislikes. Second, is listening. I wish I had learned earlier in my career as an actor, the art of listening. I learned along the way, how important it was to listen and be less concerned about what I had to say. I learned that when you listen, to listen more. I was fortunate during my career in Hollywood and beyond, to get to know and work with so many outstanding, legendary people, to call them my friends and to be able to share our conversations with these nostalgic interviews. The stories about their lives and careers have been preserved herein for all generations to enjoy, in perpetuity. Some are still with us and some are gone, but none will ever be forgotten.

Book excerpt: Two incandescent novels set in David Drake's best-selling Hammer's Slammers universe together in one volume for the first time. In Cross the Stars, Captain Don Slade has resigned from active duty with the Slammers and headed home for what he hopes will be peaceful retirement with his son and the woman he loves. And, even if he makes it through all dangers, he'll discover Tethys is not exactly ready to welcome him home with open arms. The journey home is an Odyssey of epic proportions and Don Slade is just the Ulysses to undertake it. In Voyage, Ned Slade has a heck of a name to live up to: that of his uncle Captain Don "Mad Dog" Slade of the legendary mercenary brigade, Hammer's Slammers. But Ned's life takes a turn to adventure when he crews for Lissea Doorman, a trade-ship captain who is sent by her conniving guild masters on what is supposed to be a suicide run. The crew of the good ship Swift is after an ancient alien artifact that could revolutionize star travel and Ned must become the warrior and leader that is his inheritance. Jason and the Argonauts meets gritty science fiction adventure in one of best-seller David Drake's most compelling works.

Book excerpt: The study of the conventional dimensions of film, whether of characters, narrative device, material objects, locales, or thematic motifs, provides a means of examining the most fundamental cultural assumptions of American movie makers and movie audiences. Because plot conventions are, in themselves, indexes of cultural beliefs about the physical and social world and how they should function, scholarship that focuses on the birth, evolution, or obsolescence of individual plot conventions helps to reveal the interrelationship between the movement of popular film and changes in American society.

Read and Download Douglas L. Rathgeb book The Making of Rebel Without a Cause in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TThe Making of Rebel Without a Cause. This book was released on 2004-01-01 with total page 258 pages. Book excerpt: This work is a complete history of this classic American film, from idea to script to film. In 1954, troubled director Nicholas Ray chatted at a dinner party about his controversial plan for a film about middle-class juvenile delinquents. He was told of a book, written by a prison psychologist and owned by Warner Bros., called Rebel Without a Cause. Unimpressed after reading it, Ray began writing his own story. Warner Bros. quickly bought it and hired Ray to direct the film. From the backgrounds of the many players to the pre-production, production, and post-production of the film, the work covers every aspect of Rebel Without a Cause from its rudiments to the 1955 Oscars: the selection of cast and crew, legal fights, preparatory research, changing screenwriters and the many variations of the story, location scouting, auditions, the writing of the score, script readings, difficulties with the censors, romances and fights, shot-by-shot analyses of the directing, editing, screenings, and, of course, its star's death. Dozens of intimate anecdotes fill the work with every detail from wardrobe decisions to James Dean's pranks to the Air Pollution Control Board's opposition to the final car crashes. An epilogue discusses the possible sequels, rights conflicts, documentaries, musicals, and spin-off attempts, and offers concluding words on the cast and crew. Sources include production records, publicity releases, scripts, newspapers, and discussions with Stewart Stern. An appendix offers two unpublished letters from Stewart Stern to Nicholas Ray and to Marcus and Ortense Winslow.
