From live productions of the 1950s like Requiem for a Heavyweight to big budget mini-series like Band of Brothers, long-form television programs have been helmed by some of the most creative and accomplished names in directing. Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors brings attention to the directors of these productions, citing every director of stand alone long-form television programs: made for TV movies, movie-length pilots, mini-series, and feature-length anthology programs, as well as drama, comedy, and musical specials of more than 60 minutes. Each of the nearly 2,000 entries provides a brief career sketch of the director, his or her notable works, awards, and a filmography. Many entries also provide brief discussions of key shows, movies, and other productions. Appendixes include Emmy Awards, DGA Awards, and other accolades, as well as a list of anthology programs. A much-needed reference that celebrates these often-neglected artists, Encyclopedia of Television Film Directors is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the history of the medium.

FILM ¨ BIOGRAPHY--> At first glance, George Stevens (1904Ð1975) appears to be the quintessential Hollywood director. A closer look at his achievements shows him to be more than just the creator of some of the smartest melodramas and comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, including Annie Oakley, Swing Time, and Gunga Din. Several of his films--Giant, The Diary of Anne Frank, Shane, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and A Place in the Sun--are regarded as some of the most important and enduring dramas of postwar American cinema. As a leading producer and director of his era, Stevens repeatedly pushed against the Hollywood grain and clashed with censors. George Stevens: Interviews showcases the deep moral vision of a director who is as meticulous, discerning, and contemplative in his conversations as he is as a filmmaker. Although not regarded as an auteur during his career, Stevens can now be understood as one of America's most personal and distinguished directors. Throughout this collection, his increasing concern over the control of his films is evident, and, like Alfred Hitchcock and Howard Hawks, he became a producer/director who claimed absolute control over his work. His interviews show a man committed to his chosen art and fully aware of the responsibilities that come with that choice. Paul Cronin is a writer and filmmaker.

He became a movie star playing The Man With No Name, and today his name is known around the world. Measured by longevity, productivity, and profits, Clint Eastwood is the most successful actor-director-producer in American film history. This book examines the major elements of his career, focusing primarily on his work as a director but also exploring the evolution of his acting style, his long association with screen violence, his interest in jazz, and the political views – sometimes hotly controversial – reflected in his films and public statements. Especially fascinating is the pivotal question that divides critics and moviegoers to this day: is Eastwood a capable director with a photogenic face, a modest acting talent, and a flair for marketing his image? Or is he a true cinematic auteur with a distinctive vision of America’s history, traditions, and values? From A Fistful of Dollars and Dirty Harry to Million Dollar Baby and beyond, The Cinema of Clint Eastwood takes a close-up look at one of the screen’s most influential and charismatic stars.

«En su conjunto, el cine estadounidense parece un territorio idóneo en el que aplicar, con óptimos resultados, las lecciones de los historiadores de los “Annales”, donde la historia breve y la de larga duración, la superficial y la profunda, la de los hechos y la de la mentalidad, la del imaginario y la económica, pueden coexistir, sostenerse, iluminarse e incorporarse unas a otras. Los conjuntos a los que he procurado dar más valor y en torno a los que he hecho trabajar a mis colaboradores han sido los siguientes: los géneros, fundamento y estructura portante del cine estadounidense; los ritos y divos y el papel de Hollywood como fábrica de sueños; la leyenda como patrimonio y fuente de inspiración constante; la contribución fundacional de las minorías étnicas y de las múltiples raíces culturales a la construcción de una identidad sujeta a diversas transformaciones; el papel del paisaje; la interferencia de la política y las formas de presión y de control ideológico y cultural, y, por último, [...] el desarrollo de la economía, el mercado y las transformaciones de los modos de consumo desde los nickelodeones hasta la llegada de la era televisiva y los grandes éxitos de las últimas décadas.» Con estas palabras sintetiza Gian Piero Brunetta el contenido y la orientación de estos dos magníficos volúmenes. Un empeño difícil, dada la envergadura y complejidad de la empresa, pero con un resultado incuestionable: el lector tiene entre sus manos una de las visiones de conjunto más completas y ambiciosas publicadas hasta la fecha sobre la cinematografía de los Estados Unidos, cuya consulta será ineludible para cualquiera que quiera penetrar o profundizar en la realidad de una industria que, para muchos, es sinónimo de cine. El segundo volumen cuenta con un capítulo de Javier H. Estrada en el que se analizan las principales tendencias del cine norteamericano en la primera década del siglo XXI.
