All [the essays] display Bazin's astonishing sensibilities at work on a wide range of subjects: from the stylistic integrity and love he sought in neorealism, through the mythological structures he discerned in the western and in Chaplin, to playful insights on the aesthetic contributions of the Hays office to Howard Hughes' THE OUTLAW."
