From Peepshow to Palace: The Birth of American Film - Robinson, David, and Scorsese, Martin, Professor (Foreword by)

Robinson chronicles the early use of film as vaudeville sideshow; as sheer spectacle of moving images precluding any notion of plot development or drama; and as a fledgling dramatic effort, ranging from prizefights to Passion plays.
