Abstract: This paper explores, amplifies, and challenges some commonly accepted views of Buñuel's "Land Without Bread" as (1) a "scientific"
document, (2) a travelogue, and (3) a radical variation on received notions of the relation of image and sound in film.
Abstract: Magnetic recording, today the standard film industry process for production sound recording, is often considered a purely
post-World War II phenomenon. Actually, attempts had been made throughout this century to implement magnetic recording in
sound motion pictures. Ludwig Blattner's effort to interest the film industry in magnetic recording as a viable alternative
to the cumbersome disc and costly optical systems which revolutionized the industry during the late 1920s proved abortive.
Yet Blattner's promotional activities on behalf of his Blattnerphone culminated in the introduction of magnetic sound recording
in the international broadcasting industry during the 1930s.

Abstract: Two important fifties melodramas characterize the contemporary home in ways typical of the genre of films dealing with the
American family. Formal analysis of the films reveals an opposition between conceptual and expressionistic uses of architecture.
These contrasting uses of architecture, in turn, affect the way in which the films function as social critiques.
