SHADOWS OF MAGIC by ROBERT ENNIS
In the years that have passed since 1931, there have been many changes in the world of cinema and television entertainment. This new book will take you on a nostalgic journey through those memorable years, recalling the early days of going to the pictures at the local high street cinemas. As the decades pass, we see how the cinemas and the films develop with the arrival of Cinerama and Widescreens that presented us with staggering impact in their detail and content. We see the early days of television, with tiny 9″ TV sets, as well as how home cinema started in the 1920s and 30s leading to the large TV screens enjoyed today. Robert Ennis gives us many stories of his personal experiences meeting some of the artists that have made contributions to our entertainment. This book is intended as an enjoyable read, perhaps jogging many happy memories of some of our earlier days of going to the pictures.
Chapters include, Growing up with the movies, Cinema goes out of this world, Animation by paintbrush, plasticine and computer, Music and Dance on the screen and The Digital age. Softcover, 155 fully illustrated pages.
£30 including postage and packing.
