Reseña del editor:

Over the last century, film actors from Charlie Chaplin and Lillian Gish to Meryl Streep and Jeff Daniels have spoken about the art and technique of playing to the camera. This anthology of their "insiders" observations should interest film lovers and aspiring film actors everywhere. The book has been edited by four leading film and theatre historians, who have brought together selections from periodicals and books (some no longer in print), had some statements or conversations translated into English for the first time, and conducted interviews with working actors. The book is divided into four parts - "The Silent Performance", "Finding a Voice", "European Acting" and "Hollywood Acting" - each of which is introduced by a brief commentary. This chronological and topical structure allows one actor to talk or argue with another as they offer astute - and often contradictory - opinions on a broad range of theoretical concerns. Among the issues they discuss are stage versus screen performance, the spiritual, emotional and psychological underpinnings of the actor's art, and the performer's response to technical demands and other exigencies of filmmaking. The book, which also includes a general introduction, film biographies of the actor-authors, and movie stills, is a resource that aims to give, says Stanley Kauffmann, "The mapping of a new territory in art".
