9780786440504: Feature Films, 1950-1959: A United States Filmography

In the 1950s, television pushed filmmakers toward such processes as CinemaScope and the increasing use of color. Serials and B Westerns were no longer money-makers and vanished, while a new breed of producers began to challenge the "censorship code." From Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick (Paramount, 1952) to Zombies of Mora Tau (Columbia, 1957), this comprehensive work provides full filmographic data on 3,078 American films of the 1950s. Each entry includes full cast and credits, songs, running time, alternate titles and availability to the consumer. The entries conclude with a brief plot description. An appendix lists the award winning films from the decade.

About the Author:

The late Alan G. Fetrow lived in York, Pennsylvania. He was also the author of Feature Films, 1940-1949 (1994, paperback 2008) and Sound Films, 1927-1939 (1992), both from McFarland.

From Booklist:

Some of the best and worst movies of all time were produced during the 1950s: lavish musicals, cheesy horror flicks, gripping dramas, and more. As television sets became a fixture in more and more homes, Hollywood feared this new invention and fought for viewers with an array of special film processes and special effects. While the small screens of 1950s television flickered black and white, the movie screens of the decade flashed Technicolor, Eastmancolor, DeLuxe color and more in wide-screen CinemaScope, Vista Vision, and Cinerama formats.

This is a simple, no-nonsense listing of all those movies--no pictures but plenty of pertinent detail. Film titles are presented alphabetically, and each entry is given a unique number that is used in the index instead of a page number. The entries are listed in double columns of text with approximately five to seven film descriptions per page. Each entry includes the year of release, name of the studio, cast (character names are provided only for Oscar nominees or winners and top-grossing films of the year; historical or nonfictional character names are also given), technical credits, running time, and availability on video or laser disc. For musicals, song titles and composers are listed. A brief synopsis of the plot is provided, and other kinds of recognition, such as appearance on "Ten Best" lists, are indicated. Alternate titles and titles used in Great Britain are mentioned, as are film formats, such as 3-D, color, or wide-screen. Subsequent remakes are noted, and in the case of original black-and-white films, computerized colorization is disclosed. Additional features include a brief bibliography and a list of award-winning and nominated films.

A solid, specialized source, this will be most appropriate for larger reference collections, particularly those already owning Fetrow's two previous works, Sound Films, 1927^-1939: A United States Filmography (McFarland, 1992) and Feature Films, 1940^-1949: A United States Filmography (McFarland, 1994).
