Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Perry . . . has written an entertaining, enlightening, and highly readable account of his life and the films that have been an integral part of it.
Library Journal
Perry, a professor of film studies at Middlebury College and former director of the film department at the Museum of Modern Art, has written an entertaining, enlightening, and highly readable account of his life and the films that have been an integral part of it. The book is based on visits Perry made to New Orleans, where he grew up, and his attempts to analyze the relationships among his life, his home, and the movies. Visits to particular sites in New Orleans, such as the French Quarter, a streetcar, and the banks of the Mississippi River, serve as starting points for discussions about films and their parallels to his life. For example, Perry compares his father's straightforward and uncomplicated moral code to the cowboy films of Gene Autry. Although this is a great book, it may be too special for small public libraries. Still, it will be useful to film buffs and academic and public libraries with collections in film studies.--Mark Bay, Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ. Lib., Indianapolis Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

How did my dad use his movies as texts to live by? He didn't watch Action in the North Atlantic with a pad in hand, taking notes, and afterward act on what he had written: Men do their duty by leaving their families. Far from it. My father felt this way, I'm sure, before he went to the movie, and the movie reinforced this nascent belief, gave it the force of authority, something like the way a firing in a kiln makes a shaped mass of clay into a piece of pottery. Whether movies were real or true was not the question; what was important was that they ratified some version of reality he was already leaning toward, or some belief my dad needed to be true. Like the rest of us, he had illusions that he was quite ready and willing to believe in, and the movies authenticated those illusions.
