On Craftsmanship: towards a new Bauhaus

Original Synopsis

"On Craftsmanship: towards a new Bauhaus has a total of 184 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Frayling'. Craftsmanship has again become fashionable in high places, just as it did in the last few recessions. The concept of craftsmanship has never been as relevant and timely as it is today. Assailed on all sides by – among many other tendencies - flexible working, short-termism, portfolio careers, quick-fix training and the cult of celebrity, it has recently re-entered public debate with a new sense of urgency. Why? This series of linked essays by the man who ran the Royal College of Art for many years explores the crafts in education, in history and literature, in the contemporary arts landscape, in the language, in the digital age, and takes an unsentimental, hard-headed look at craftsmanship today. Only when the romantic cobwebs have been blown away, it argues, can the key importance of the crafts be fully understood. 2012-06-18 time of publication of the book, [-Oberon Books-]"

Mad, Bad and Dangerous?

Original Synopsis

"Mad, Bad and Dangerous? has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Frayling'. From Victor Frankenstein to Dr. Moreau to Doc Brown in Back to the Future, the scientist has been a puzzling, fascinating, and threatening presence in popular culture. From films we have learned that scientists are either evil maniacal geniuses or bumbling saviors of society. Mad, Bad and Dangerous? puts this dichotomy to the test, offering a wholly engaging yet not uncritical history of the cinematic portrayal of scientists. Christopher Frayling traces the genealogy of the scientist in film, showing how the scientist has often embodied the predominant anxieties of a particular historical moment. The fear of nuclear holocaust in the 1950s gave rise to a rash of radioactive-mutant horror movies, while the possible dangers of cloning and biotechnology in the 1990s manifested themselves in Jurassic Park. During these eras, the scientist's actions have been viewed through a lens of fascination and fear. In the past few decades, with increased public awareness of environmental issues and of the impact of technology on nature, the scientist has been transformed once again—into a villainous agent of money-hungry corporate powers. Mad, Bad and Dangerous? also examines biographical depictions of actual scientists, illuminating how they are often portrayed as social misfits willing to sacrifice everything to the interests of science. Drawing on such classic and familiar films as Frankenstein, Metropolis, and The Wizard of Oz, Frayling brings social and film history together to paint a much larger picture of the evolving value of science and technology to society. A fascinating study of American culture and film, Mad, Bad and Dangerous? resurrects the scientists of late night movies and drive-in theaters and gives them new life as cultural talismans. 2013-06-01 time of publication of the book, [-Reaktion Books-]"

The Innocents

Original Synopsis

"The Innocents has a total of 115 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Frayling'. Jack Clayton's gothic masterpiece The Innocents, though not a commercial success on its release in 1961, has been hailed as one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time. Dividing reviewers with its ambiguous depiction of ghosts, the film ignited a debate about the aesthetics of horror which still rages today. In this stimulating introduction to The Innocents, Sir Christopher Frayling traces the film from its genesis in the original novel The Turn of The Screw by Henry James, via contemporary critical contexts and William Archibald's 1950 stage adaptation of the same name, to the screenplay by William Archibald, Truman Capote and John Mortimer. Drawing on unpublished material from Jack Clayton's archive – including Capote's handwritten drafts for the film – and interviews with Deborah Kerr, Freddie Francis, and John Mortimer, Frayling explores how this classic ghost story came to life on screen. This special edition features original cover artwork by Matthew Young. 2017-10-24 time of publication of the book, [-Bloomsbury Publishing-]"

Things to Come

Original Synopsis

"Things to Come has a total of 83 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Frayling'. The release ofThings to Comein 1936 was one of the key moments in the history of science fiction in the cinema. The film was the brainchild of H. G. Wells, whose worldwide reputation as a thinker had persuaded its producer, Alexander Korda, to offer him a contract giving him virtually total control over the project. Korda drafted a dazzling array of talents to render into pictures Wells's ideas of the future a hundred years hence. His brother, Vincent Korda, a distinguished painter, was employed as art director, and the Bauhaus artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy contributed ideas for futuristic sets. As director, Korda hired William Cameron Menzies, who had practically invented the profession of Hollywood art director through his work with Douglas Fairbanks onThe Thief of Baghdadand Rudolf Valentino onSon of the Sheik, and whose career would climax withGone With the WInd. The result was a landmark in cinematic design. Christopher Frayling shows, with a wealth of illustrations, how the boldness and brilliance of the sets and costumes mark outThings to Comeas British cinema's greatest contribution to the science fiction genre, amply justifying his judgement that "Things to Comeis to modernism asBlade Runneris to postmodernism." 1995-07-27 time of publication of the book, [-British Film Inst-]"

Inside the Bloody Chamber

Original Synopsis

"Inside the Bloody Chamber has a total of 260 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher Frayling'. I would really like to have had the guts and the energy and so on to be able to write about people having battles with DHSS. But I haven't ... I'm an arty person. Okay, I write overblown, purple, self-indulgent prose. So what... Alienated is the only way to be, after all. Since 1990, Angela Carter’s reputation, as writer and thinker, has soared, to the point where her collection of folk and fairy tales for the modern age, The Bloody Chamber, is now a GCSE set text in England, and is taught on most university-level literature courses. There are MA programmes entirely devoted to her writings. Her complete works have been printed and reprinted over the last quarter-century, and films, The Company of Wolves, The Magic Toyshop; and plays, such as Nights at the Circus (Kneehigh), have been derived from them. Her influence on ‘the contemporary Gothic’ is both wide-ranging and profound. 2015-08-20 time of publication of the book, [-Oberon Books-]"
