Film Comment (1972) - 60 filmographies the men with the movie cameras




Last year FILM COMMENT devoted a whole issue to the work of the screenwriter, certainly a fresh approach in the welter of director-centered criticism that has appeared in the past decade, but predictably devoted to a type of filmmaker intimately bound up with story and narrative elements, and thus susceptible to the standard forms of literary/thematic analysis employed previously. In the process of correcting them I realized the limitations of the standard reference material available, and at the instigation of the editor of Film Comment / expanded it to its present length, adding many names, dropping several, searching through the records of the American Society of Cinematographers in Hollywood, and eventually sending the expanded listings off to all concerned members of the ASC.
