work on cinema and started to adapt a work on Falstaff which he hoped to film with Raimu. A movement away from Hollywood productions in the 1950s turned cinema into a more artistic independent (independent films) endeavor. It was the creation of the auteur theory, which asserted film as the director's vision and art, that prompted film studies to become truly considered academically worldwide in the 1960s.

music strip

music strip in the burgeoning San Fernando Valley. Ash was a regular there for the five years Lamare ran the club, and it led to his initial sessions with Clive Acker's Jump Records as a soloist in late 1947 and with Rosy McHargue's Memphis Five. With a national musician's strike against the record companies looming in 1948, recording studios were very crowded in November and December 1947 trying to get in last minute sessions, and Marvin was kept busy during that two month period. His work with McHargue also resulted in sessions with Lamare and others at Capitol Records (both companies used Radio Recorders, the best Hollywood studio at that time), recording as Nappy Lamare's Levee Loungers and Marvin Ash and his Mason Dixon Music. He also kept regular broadcast performance stints on radio at KRKD (KTLK (AM)) and Television on KHJ-TV (KCAL-TV), as well as the aptly named Hangover Club in Hollywood. Music The music score, by Alex North, was a radical departure from the major trend in Hollywood at that time, which was action-based and overly manipulative. Instead of composing in the traditional leitmotif style, North wrote short sets of music that reflected the psychological dynamics of the characters. For his work on the film, North was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music Score, one of two nominations in that category that year. He also was nominated for his music score for the film version of another play, ''Death of a Salesman'', which also was composed with his unique technique. However, he lost to Franz Waxman's score for ''A Place in the Sun (A Place in the Sun (film))''. In film André Bazin, Alexandre Astruc and François Truffaut advocated the ''auteur theory'': the director is the primary author of the film. They hated the Hollywood studio system, applauding the independent United States film movement of the late 1960s to early 1980s known as New Hollywood. This movement started to wane in the late 1970s following the commercial success of Steven Spielberg's ''Jaws (Jaws (Film))'' and George Lucas's ''Star Wars (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope)''. The more commercial Hollywood sensibilities heralded by Spielberg and Lucas resulted in films typically undergoing multiple rewrites by plural authors, and sometimes changes in director (director (film)), during the production process. The film discusses disparities the filmmaker sees in ratings and feedback: between Hollywood and independent films, between homosexual and heterosexual sexual situations, between male and female sexual depictions, and between violence and sexual content.
