New York: Film Culture Non-Profit Corporation. Near Fine. 1973. (No. 56-57). Periodical. [a clean tight copy, with faint handling wear only]. (B&W photographs) About half of this 262-page issue is devoted to a tribute to Leni Riefenstahl, including an interview, reproductions of Jean Cocteau's letters to her, extensive material on her films TRIUMPH OF THE WILL and OLYMPIA, and a filmography. Other highlights: a tribute to the recently-deceased filmmaker Jerome Hill (including an interview and a filmography); a number of pieces on filmmaker Robert Breer, in connection with his receiving the 11th Independent Film Award (including two interviews and a filmography); detailed analyses of Stan Brakhage's THE ACT OF SEEING WITH ONE'S OWN EYES and Michael Snow's A CASING SHELVED; a long article on "The Roman Catholic Cinema of French Canada," by Seymour Stern; and a full index to issues 1-57 of this important publication.t Flaherty (the publication of an exchange of correspondence with Erik Barnouw, 1926-1929; plus an article on Flaherty's brief career as a radio announcer); an article, "Black Panthers in the New Wave"; Joris Ivens (a long interview, plus statements by Ivens); Rollie Totheroh (a long interview with the veteran cinematographer about his work with Charlie Chaplin); Phil Karlson (a discussion of his film "99 River Street"). An embarrassment of riches, really -- it's not hard to understand why this is one of the harder-to-find issues of this excellent publication. ***NOTE that we have many issues of this and other film-related periodicals that are not listed online, and we welcome your inquiries. .
