Carney, Raymond

SUMMARY

In this study, Professor Carney provides a new analysis of the career and work of film director Frank Capra. There are few filmgoers who have not seen and been moved by one of the thirty-six feature films directed by Frank Capra between 1926 and 1961, among which are It's a Wonderful Life, Mr Smith Goes to Washington, MeetJohn Doe, Lost Horizon, It Happened One Night, Mr Deeds Goes to Town, and Pocketful of Miracles. Critics, however, have often dismissed the director as sentimental, or patronised his populist tendencies. Professor Carney locates the director's oeuvre within a larger tradition of post-Romantic expression, placing him in the company of figures such as Hawthorne, Emerson, James, Winslow, Homer, Sargent and Edward Hopper. Professor Carney's vast knowledge of Capra's biography, the intricacies of the Hollywood studio system, film-making techniques, and the American cultural heritage has produced a study that moves beyond the boundaries of current film scholarship. The detailed readings of individual films are presented within a broad cultural context and the context of Capra's own development. Thus, the book is as much an exploration of the American imagination as it is a study of a single director's work.Carney, Raymond is the author of 'American Vision: The Films of Frank Capra - Raymond Carney - Hardcover' with ISBN 9780521326193 and ISBN 0521326192.
