ANDRE BAZIN'S "CHARLIE CHAPLIN": AN ANNOTATED TRANSLATION AND ANALYSIS OF TEXT BASED ON METHODS DERIVED FROM "DE LA POLITIQUE DES AUTEURS" (FILM, COMMUNICATION)

This study presents Andre Bazin as a film theorist and Charles Chaplin as a filmmaker, examining both through a translation of Bazin's Charlie Chaplin. Each chapter of this translation of Charlie Chaplin is followed by annotated footnotes which expand on Bazin's thought and Chaplin's films. Furthermore, the footnotes give the information necessary to understand Charlie Chaplin to its fullest--its writer and its subject. / Three articles in Charlie Chaplin--"Introduction to Charlot's Symbolism," "The Myth of Monsieur Verdoux," and "The Grandeur of Limelight"--were previously translated by Hugh Gray and printed in What is Cinema? These articles are included in the study after having been revised because some inaccuracies and inconsistencies were noted when comparing the original text with Gray's translation. Detailed footnotes were also added to Gray's too few. / The study also includes a synthetic analysis of Charlie Chaplin through methods of criticism derived from Bazin's "De la politique des auteurs," his best known piece. In this section Andrew Sarris' Auteur theory is re-evaluated. The analysis is supported and supplemented by interviews with Francois Truffaut, Janine Bazin, Jean Narboni and Dudley Andrew. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 46-04, Section: A, page: 0820. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--The Florida State University, 1985.
