Book Description

Hugo Münsterberg's The Photoplay (1916) is one of the first and most important early works of film theory. Münsterberg's work on the emerging art of cinema remains a key document for film scholars, but it has long been out of print. In this new edition, Allan Langdale provides a critical introduction to the seminal text and collects numerous hard-to-find writings on film by Münsterberg.

Reviews

"Hugo Munsterberg's work offers a refreshing, provocative clarity that is all too rare among today's film theorizing. It is wonderful to have his Photoplay available once more, along with several articles and Allan Langdale's richly informed introduction. Munsterberg's work reminds us of the movies' irresistable appeal to our mind and senses." -- David Bordwell, University of Wisconsin--Madison
