Outside of the capital London, no other British city has attracted more filmmakers than Liverpool. Sometimes standing in for London, New York, Chicago, Paris, Rome, or Moscow, and sometimes playing itself—or a version of its own past in Beatles biopics—Liverpool is an adaptable filmic backdrop that has attracted filmmakers to its ports for decades. A place of passion, humor, and pride, Liverpool evokes caverns and cathedrals, ferries and football grounds; it is a city so vivid we see it clearly even if we've never been there. From the earliest makers of moving images—among them the Mitchell & Kenyon film company, the Lumière brothers, and pioneering early cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene—who preserved the city, the river, the docks, the streets, and the people, Liverpool has endured as a cinematic destination. This collection celebrates that survival instinct and will be welcomed by enthusiasts of British cities, films, and culture.

The step by step companion guide to the work of Francis Ford Coppola. Francis Ford Coppola has made masterpieces and confounded viewers in equal part in his long career. From his expansive Godfather trilogy and Apocolypse Now to the art-house teen dream of Rumble Fish and the Gothic grandeur of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Coppola's films have become pop culture touchstones. Some of the world's biggest movie stars - among them Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Tom Cruise, Gary Oldman and Matt Damon - have starred in Coppola movies, while, as a producer Coppola has presented some of the most engrossing films of the modern era, such as American Graffiti, Koyaanisqatsi and Kagemusha. Throughout his career Coppola has demonstrated an unerring belief in the power of digital technology to expand the potential of moviemaking and, with Magalopois finally becoming a reality, he has reasserted his position as a Hollywood genious. Coppola takes each of his directorial projects in chronological order and discusses then in accessible sections, making it the indispensable guide to the films of Francis Ford Coppola.

A comprehensive treatment of the Classical World in film and television, A Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen closely examines the films and TV shows centered on Greek and Roman cultures and explores the tension between pagan and Christian worlds. Written by a team of experts in their fields, this work considers productions that discuss social settings as reflections of their times and as indicative of the technical advances in production and the economics of film and television. Productions included are a mix of Hollywood and European spanning from the silent film era though modern day television series, and topics discussed include Hollywood politics in film, soundtrack and sound design, high art and low art, European art cinemas, and the ancient world as comedy. Written for students of film and television as well as those interested in studies of ancient Rome and Greece, A Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen provides comprehensive, current thinking on how the depiction of Ancient Greece and Rome on screen has developed over the past century. It reviews how films of the ancient world mirrored shifting attitudes towards Christianity, the impact of changing techniques in film production, and fascinating explorations of science fiction and technical fantasy in the ancient world on popular TV shows like Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, and Dr. Who.
