Summary
The frame-by-frame dissection of a race film from Michael Ritchie's DOWNHILL RACER shows the ease with which an audience is deceived into accepting impossible action by simple editing techniques. The mutiny scene from the Russian POTEMKIN shows how Eisenstein exploited pace-of-cutting to build tension. Similar editing was used to dramatize the death of the lead in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA. Using sequences from KING KONG and Griffith's BIRTH OF A NATION, Ritchie demonstrates how early directors discover "realism." Other clips include the spectacular waterfall scene from FOOTLIGHT PARADE ... Douglas Fairbanks as the original ROBIN HOOD ... Bogart and Hepburn battling in AFRICAN QUEEN ... a behind-the-scenes peek at THE MANY FATES OF DUSTIN HOFFMAN ... and a television spot made for Lyndon Johnson's presidential campaign. All are chosen to illustrate some of the other tools of the director's trade - script, casting choices, sets and costumes, direction of actors, music, etc
