Download or read book Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios PDF or another Format written by Frederic Lombardi and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2013-03-05 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It could be said that the career of Canadian-born film director Allan Dwan (1885–1981) began at the dawn of the American motion picture industry. Originally a scriptwriter, Dwan became a director purely by accident. Even so, his creativity and problem-solving skills propelled him to the top of his profession. He achieved success with numerous silent film performers, most spectacularly with Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Gloria Swanson, and later with such legendary stars as Shirley Temple and John Wayne. Though his star waned in the sound era, Dwan managed to survive through pluck and ingenuity. Considering himself better off without the fame he enjoyed during the silent era, he went on to do some of his best work for second-echelon studios (notably Republic Pictures’ Sands of Iwo Jima) and such independent producers as Edward Small. Along the way, Dwan also found personal happiness in an unconventional manner. Rich in detail with two columns of text in each of its nearly 400 pages, and with more than 150 photographs, this book presents a thorough examination of Allan Dwan and separates myth from truth in his life and films.

Download or read book Trumpocalypse Now! PDF or another Format written by Kenn Thomas and published by SCB Distributors. This book was released on 2017-04-27 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The controversial 2016 election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States sparked a debate that promises to define the global political dialogue going forward. Behind the scenes, however, a deeper dynamic has been put into play: conspiracy theory has moved from the sideline fringe onto America’s central stage. This book examines The Donalds’s history of creating alternative realities with “alternative facts” and “fake news” and the authentic conspiratorial points of view from which they arise. Trumpocalypse Now! takes a look at Trump’s career as a conspiracy theory celebrity, his trafficking in such notions as birtherism, Islamofascism and 9/11, the conspiracies of the Clinton era, and the JFK assassination. It also examines the controversies of the 2016 election, including the cyberhacking of the DNC, the Russian involvement and voter fraud. Learn the parapolitical realities behind the partisan divide and the real ideological underpinnings behind the country’s most controversial president.

Download or read book New Approaches to Rhetoric PDF or another Format written by Patricia A. Sullivan and published by SAGE Publications. This book was released on 2003-12-23 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: New Approaches to Rhetoric provides fresh perspectives on the study of rhetoric and its ability to affect change in today's society. Although traditional approaches (e.g., neo-Aristotelian) to the study of rhetoric have utility for the twenty-first century, communication in a complex, mass-mediated postmodern age calls for new critical approaches. The contributors of this volume, including James Darsey, Kathryn M. Olson and G. Thomas Goodnight, George Cheney, Dana Cloud, and Barry Brummett, explore possibilities for bridging rhetorical studies of the past with rhetorical studies of the future. The original essays invite students to join rhetorical theorists and critics in an ongoing dialogue concerning what it means to study communication in a postmodern world. New Approaches to Rhetoric is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in Rhetoric and in Political Communication in departments of Communication, English, and Political Science. This book is suitable for use as either a primary or supplemental course text and will be invaluable as a general reference for scholars of rhetoric, social movements, and public sphere studies.

Download or read book Blondie's Parallel Lines PDF or another Format written by Kembrew McLeod and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2016-03-24 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Blondie's Parallel Lines mixed punk, disco and radio-friendly FM rock with nostalgic influences from 1960s pop and girl group hits. This 1978 album kept one foot planted firmly in the past while remaining quite forward-looking, an impulse that can be heard in its electronic dance music hit “Heart of Glass.” Bubblegum music maven Mike Chapman produced Parallel Lines, which was the first massive hit by a group from the CBGB punk underworld. By embracing the diversity of New York City's varied music scenes, Blondie embodied many of the tensions that played out at the time between fans of disco, punk, pop and mainstream rock. Debbie Harry's campy glamor and sassy snarl shook up the rock'n'roll boy's club during a growing backlash against the women's and gay liberation movements, which helped fuel the “disco sucks” battle cry in the late 1970s. Despite disco's roots in a queer, black and Latino underground scene that began in downtown New York, punk is usually celebrated by critics and scholars as the quintessential subculture. This book challenges the conventional wisdom that dismissed disco as fluffy prefab schlock while also recuperating punk's unhip pop influences, revealing how these two genres were more closely connected than most people assume. Even Blondie's album title, Parallel Lines, evokes the parallel development of punk and disco-along with their eventual crossover into the mainstream.
