Few cinematographers have had as decisive an impact on the cinematic medium as John Alton. Best known for his highly stylized film noir classics T-Men, He Walked by Night, and The Big Combo, Alton earned a reputation during the 1940s and 1950s as one of Hollywood´s consummate craftsmen through his visual signature of crisp shadows and sculpted beams of light. No less renowned for his virtuoso color cinematography and deft appropriation of widescreen and Technicolor, he earned an Academy Award in 1951 for his work on the musical An American in Paris. First published in 1949, and long out of print since then, Painting With Light remains one of the few truly canonical statements on the art of motion picture photography, an unrivalled historical document on the workings of the postwar, American cinema. In simple, non-technical language, Alton explains the job of the cinematographer and explores how lighting, camera techniques, and choice of locations determine the visual mood of film.
Hardship, sacrifice, determination, and ultimate triumph make up Blind Faith, the frank and compelling biography of Lula Hardaway, mother of superstar musician and singer Stevie Wonder. A motherless child born in a sharecropper´s shack in Alabama, Lula was passed from relative to relative, unwanted and unloved. As a teenager she was sent to Chicago where she married a much older man who abused her and forced her to work as a prostitute. Determined to build a better life for her children, she eventually made her escape to Detroit. Although Stevland Judkins was blind virtually from birth, Lula noticed that this little boy impressed everyone with his outgoing personality, his intelligence, charm, and his incredible musical talent. Berry Gordy dubbed the boy Little Stevie Wonder and launched him into musical history when he signed Stevie to his Motown label. When Innervisions won a Grammy award for Album of the Year, in 1973, Stevie Wonder refused to accept the award unless Lula walked with him to the podium where he proclaimed, ´´her strength has led us to this place.´´ Indeed, it was Lula´s drive and her willingness to sacrifice the now for the future that saw them through. Blind Faith is not only the story of the birth of a superstar, but a stirring testament to a mother´s love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Viola Davis.

Gebundene Ausgabe - 418 Seiten - Virgin Books - Englisch Imagine Elvis´s relatives, friends, musical colleagues and business associates - many speaking for the first time - gathering to remember him and swap stories about him.

Scotty Moore and Bill Monroe recall Elvis´s days of $50 gigs, while musicians like Faron Young and Johnny Cash reveal how tough it was just a year later to follow him on stage at Louisiana Hayride.
