Film Art: Review of the Advance-Guard Cinema, Issue No. 9, Autumn 1936

London: Self published, 1936. First Edition.

Published in the wake of the highly influential "Close Up" magazine, "Film Art" kept the flame lit as an important UK literary and film periodical, a few of the editors contributing most of the material, and a handful of others filling the gaps. The magazine was not opposed to completely ignoring the general public's view of cinema, and the editor, B. Vivian Braun (director of the 1934 short, "Beyond This Open Road"), centered much of the content on international cinema, particularly Soviet, French, and German. Articles on surrealism, directors V. I. Pudovkin, G. W. Pabst, S. M. Eisenstein, and Paul Rotha, book reviews, and black-and-white photographs, made this publication and it's often "underground" content accessible and relevant to an otherwise sheltered mass audience.

7.5 x 9.5 inches, saddle-stitched. An old cellotape reinforcement to the spine, else Very Good.
