Extras of Early Hollywood

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Extras of Early Hollywood by Kerry Segrave Book Summary:

Pity the “extras.” Mostly overlooked and forgotten. Especially those in the major Hollywood films 1913 to 1945—right through the dream factory’s golden era. The struggles of extras to unionize were followed by internal struggles as the extras fought for a voice within that union. There were just too few jobs for far too many extras, some of whom were lured to Hollywood by what seemed to be rags-to-riches tales of stardom (but which were likely little more than industry publicity plants). Once lured to the film capital the reality was much different: low pay, little or no work, ripoffs from private employment agencies, and sexual harassment of the women, likely very much underreported. Some extras had special skills or language abilities, some had wardrobes replete with many period costumes.

Hollywood Unknowns

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Hollywood Unknowns by Anthony Slide Book Summary:

Extras, bit players, and stand-ins have been a part of the film industry almost from its conception. On a personal and a professional level, their stories are told in Hollywood Unknowns, the first history devoted to extras from the silent era through the present. Hollywood Unknowns discusses the relationship of the extra to the star, the lowly position in which extras were held, the poor working conditions and wages, and the sexual exploitation of many of the hardworking women striving for a place in Hollywood society. Though mainly anonymous, many are identified by name and, for perhaps the first time, receive equal billing with the stars. And Hollywood Unknowns does not forget the bit players, stand-ins, and doubles, who work alongside the extras facing many of the same privations. Celebrity extras, silent stars who ended their days as extras, or members of various ethnic groups--all gain a deserved luster in acclaimed film writer Anthony Slide’s prose. Chapters document the lives and work of extras from the 1890s to the present. Slide also treats such subjects as the Hollywood Studio Club, Central Casting, the extras in popular literature, and the efforts at unionization through the Screen Actors Guild from the 1930s onwards. Slide chronicles events such as John Barrymore’s walking off set in the middle of the day so the extras could earn another day’s wages, and Cecil B. DeMille’s masterful organizing of casts of thousands in films such as Cleopatra. Through personal interviews, oral histories, and the use of newly available archival material, Slide reveals in Hollywood Unknowns the story of the men, women, and even animals that completed the scenes on the silver screen.

Extra Miles by Ashish Negi Book Summary:

This small collection of stories is about ƒ ƒ Few breaths of happiness and a few moments of satisfaction, A life with this part of mother earth, and that portion of the magnificent sky, Living with countless dreams and a bag of emotions.Sea like aspirations and high-rise expectations. A diary, full of untold words and numerous confused affections, Quoting air like talks and sand resembling relationships. These days full of jealousy and those nights full of repentance, A wave, a blaze of warm water, and a winged hot vapor, Roving with few strange fellow travelers' presence.Feelings of accomplishment and desires for emptiness,A canvass, saving its shades in rainy days and alone ways, Hiding its forgotten pages, and scattered brightness... And represents colours of thoughts of a young person, which are the by product of dealings of his ñIî, ñEgoî, and ñSuper Egoî. Those 'Colours' include happiness, time; changing definitions of relations, frustration, imagination, struggle among other things.

The Extra-Dimensional Universe

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Extra-Dimensional Universe by John R. Violette Book Summary:

UFO sightings and alien abductions, mystical experiences and psychic phenomena, the near-death and the out-of-body experience--millions of ordinary people around the world report experiencing these events at some point in their lives. Yet, because there is no accepted scientific theory to explain the paranormal, the events--and the people who report them--are ridiculed and dismissed. The problem isn't the people, it's the science. While some cutting-edge researchers and quantum physicists are speculating more frequently that these experiences are caused by something beyond our world--some kind of higher-dimensional reality--any proposed extra-dimensional theories put forth thus far have lacked one key ingredient--expanded consciousness. Extra-Dimensional Universe presents an expanded framework of space, time, and consciousness. This, for the first time, explains how paranormal phenomena can exist. Violette's landscape-altering theory is fully compatible with all the findings of modern scientific research--and ancient wisdom traditions--and clearly explains the science of paranormal events such as UFOs and abductions, mystical and psychic phenomena, and the near-death experience. Violette even reveals that expanded consciousness is the key to understanding why some people experience psychic phenomena such as UFOs or ghosts when others don't. An advancement of the classic theories of R. M. Bucke and P. D. Ouspensky, Extra-Dimensional Universe is itself destined to become a classic of the science of spirituality.

Extra-grammatical Morphology in English

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Extra-grammatical Morphology in English by Elisa Mattiello Book Summary:

Extra-grammatical morphology is a hitherto neglected area of research, highly marginalised because of its irregularity and unpredictability.

This book analyses such phenomena.

The Extra Man

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Extra Man by Jonathan Ames Book Summary:

Jonathan Ames, whose debut novel I Pass Like Night was enthusiastically praised by Philip Roth and Joyce Carol Oates, has followed up with a brilliant and comic second novel. Louis Ives, the narrator of The Extra Man, fancies himself a young gentleman fashioned after his heroes in the books of F. Scott Fitzgerald. He dresses the part -- favoring neckties, blue blazers, and sport coats. But he also has a penchant for women's clothing, a weakness that causes him to lose his job as a teacher at a Princeton day school after a bizarre incident involving a colleague's brassiere. Thrust out of Princeton, he heads to New York where he rents a cheap room in the madly discombobulated apartment of Henry Harrison, a failed but brilliant playwright who dances alone to Ethel Merman records, sneaks into Broadway shows, and performs with great style the duties of a walker -- an escort for the rich widows of the Upper East Side. The two men, separated in age by more than forty years, develop a relationship that is irascible mentor and eager apprentice, and they form a bond the depths of which neither expected. But Louis, when he's not with Henry, has fascinations that lead him to an unusual community on the fringes of the sex world of Times Square. He develops a secret life there, which he fears will be his undoing and which he must keep hidden from Henry at all costs. A hilarious yet moving story about friendship and longing, The Extra Man is an original and unforgettable novel by one of America's most talented young writers.

Extra-Solar Planets

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Extra-Solar Planets by Bonnie Steves,Martin Hendry,Andrew C. Cameron Book Summary:

Since the discovery of the first exoplanet orbiting a main sequence star in 1995, nearly 500 planets have been detected, with this number expected to increase dramatically as new ground-based planetary searches begin to report their results. Emerging techniques offer the tantalizing possibility of detecting an Earth-mass planet in the habitable zone of a solar-type star as well as the exciting prospect of studying exoplanetary atmospheres that could reveal the presence of biomarkers, such as water vapor, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Can we find the "Holy Grail" of exoplanets? Cutting-edge research may reveal the answer Written by internationally renowned scientists at the forefront of the field, Extra-Solar Planets: The Detection, Formation, Evolution and Dynamics of Planetary Systems presents powerful analytical tools and methods for investigating extra-solar planetary systems. It discusses new theories on planetary migration and resonant capture that elucidate the existence of "hot Jupiters." It also examines the astrophysical mechanisms required to assemble gas giant planets close to their parent star. In addition, the expert contributors describe how mathematical tools involving periodicity, chaos, and resonance are used to study the diversity and stability of observed planetary systems. By presenting the fundamental analyses that underpin modern studies of extra-solar planetary systems, this graduate-level book enables readers to thoroughly understand important recent developments and offers a platform for future research. It also improves readers’ understanding of our own solar system and its place in the diverse range of planetary systems discovered so far.

Ordinary People and Extra-ordinary Protections

Extras Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ordinary People and Extra-ordinary Protections by Judith L. Mitrani Book Summary:

Many people come to analysis appearing quite 'ordinary' on the surface. However, once below that surface, we often come into contact with something quite unexpected: 'extra-ordinary protections' created to keep at bay any awareness of deeply traumatic happenings occurring at some point in life. Judith Mitrani investigates the development and the function of these protections, allowing the reader to witness the evolution of the process of transformation, wherein defensiveness steadily mutates into communication. She lucidly and artfully weaves detailed clinical with a variety of analytic concepts, and her original notions - including 'unmentalized experience' and its expression in enactments; 'adhesive pseudo-object relations' and the way in which this contracts and compares with normal and narcissistic object relations - provide valuable tools for understanding the infantile transference/countertransference and for the refinement of our technique with primitive mental states. Ordinary People and Extra-Ordinary Protections will prove stimulating and accessible in its style and substance to a broad analytic readership, from the serious student of psychoanalysis to the most seasoned professional.
