    The Silent Clowns ePUB ↠ The Silent ePUB Æ silent book, clowns pdf, The Silent kindle, The Silent Clowns ePUBStart here if you're interested in the study of early comedy Kerr writes with passion and skill Some 380 pages but due to the huge size of the book it would be like 600 pages in a typical size publication The large size is justified as the prints are well selected film and production shots Many of these photos are not found elsewhere The chapters are individuated and detailed essays that read something like Walter Benjamin's lighter moments Kerr's focus is profound and despite the fact that when this was published there wasn't something like Youtube or archiveorg that enabled even the laziest scholar to have immediate access to the films so at times he walks you through a scene by scene discussion of the films That might seem vestigial now but with Kerr's skill even this banausic functionality is a delight As Kerr moves past the subject at hand he goes beyond the mere film to discuss the deeper end of the subject at hand and provides some amazing insi

    The Silent Clowns ePUB ↠ The Silent ePUB Æ silent book, clowns pdf, The Silent kindle, The Silent Clowns ePUBWalter Kerr's coffee table sized book on silent movie comedians has been considered a nearly definitive treatment of the topic for than 30 years I lucked into a 25 hardcover first edition at Half Price books an edition that routinely goes for 50 or beautifully preserved in a mylar jacket and begged for it as a Christmas gift two years ago and got it I look forward to delving into it someday soon
