The Influence of Alexander Mackendrick on the K...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The late American-Scottish filmmaker, Alexander Mackendrick (1912-1993), directed just 9 films, his most prominent being the 1957 late noir masterpiece, Sweet Smell of Success. His early British films while staff director at London's Ealing Studios are today considered cinematic gems, especially The Ladykillers and The Man in The White Suit, both starring Sir Alec Guinness. This scholarly book explores in great detail Mackendrick's Scottish-themed films, Whisky Galore! and The Maggie. Considered benchmarks within the Celtic village film canon known as "kailyardism", both movies left lasting, indelible impressions on this pocket-sized sub-genre. Mackendrick's deft touches of mild anarchy, dark comedy, realism and use of children have often been copied, refashioned or referenced by a number of later "kailyard" filmmakers. Whimsical comedies like Local Hero, Waking Ned Devine and The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill all bear striking resemblances to Whisky Galore! & The Maggie. So does the classic horror film, The Wicker Man. This book examines how Alexander Mackendrick's cinematic devices continue to leave a creative imprint on Celtic-themed films produced on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Wicked Wit of Ireland
12,03 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'An Irishman will always soften bad news, so that a major coronary is no more than "a bad turn" and a near hurricane that leaves thousands homeless is "good drying weather"' - Hugh LeonardThe people of Ireland are renowned for their wit, and they have migrated from Ireland to most corners of the world, taking that famous sense of humour with them. Modern comedians and comic writers as varied as Dylan Moran, Sharon Horgan, Tommy Tiernan, Alison Spittle, Graham Linehan and Ed Byrne have their own distinctive ways of celebrating and mocking their origins while still occasionally acknowledging the traditional 'paddywackery' (meaning the rain-soaked, Guinness-sodden Oirish stereotype of old).The roots of Irish humour are much more complex: for centuries classic Irish writers have used black humour and sarcasm, ranging from the satires of Jonathan Swift, George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde through to the hilarity of J.P. Donleavy and the sublime nonsense of Flann O'Brien and Spike Milligan ('Many people die of thirst but the Irish are born with one.')This collection combines a pinch of traditional Irish humour, from shamrocks to limericks, and blarney stones to drinking stories, mixed with distinctly modern one-liners, quips and quotes from the best of the current crop of humorists, along with sections on the Irish mammy, literary feuds and putdowns and epitaphs.

Kind Hearts & Coronets is regarded as one of the most perfect of the Golden-Age Ealing comedies and is included on the British Film Institute’s list of the 100 Best British Films of the 20th Century.Alec Guinness hilariously features in eight different roles as the unsuspecting members of the aristocratic D’Ascoyne family – murdered one by one by the scheming, outcast cousin Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price). Mazzini's mother was a D'Ascoyne by birth, but when she ran away with an opera singer she was ostracized by her family as a result. When her dying wish to be buried in the family crypt is refused, Louis vows to get his revenge. As he ascends the social ranks, he is torn between his love for now-married childhood sweetheart, and equally devilish Sibella (Joan Greenwood), and the saintly wife of one of his victims, Edith D’Ascoyne (Valerie Hobson). A sparkling new restoration of the Ealing Studios comedy classic.
