 Dolores del Río - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
She was a star of Hollywood films during the silent era and became an important actress in Mexican films later in her life.
In 1921 at the age of 16, she married Jaime del Río, and through a Hollywood friend the couple emigrated to the USA with the plan of establishing show business careers for themselves: as screenwriter and actress, respectively.
The affair with Orson Welles was reported to have been the cause of her divorce from Gibbons in 1941, but that is far from certain, in particular considering the Hollywood reputation of Gibbons' sexual orientation.

Jacobs photographs the screen, the projector the film is playing on, and at one point torments us with 10 minutes of blur as images slip off the sprocket holes.
The entire film is an act of imaginative rediscovery of "the vivacious doings of persons long dead," as Jacobs once put it, as well as being an exploration of the nature of cinematic storytelling.
In many ways the anonymous 1905 original version of the nursery rhyme about the pig-stealing piper's son -- credited by some to Billy Bitzer -- is stranger than what Jacobs does to it, taking place as it does in a series of tableaux through which a scrum of players rush.

After the advent of film technology in the late 1800s, Australia embraced the medium wholeheartedly, and underwent a period of rapid development in the industry.
When television started to permeate the landscape in 1956, members of the film industry felt that the industry may, in fact, be jeopardised by this new medium.

 Spinning Straw into Gold: Four Works by Jürgen Reble in the New Medium of Film
Jürgen Reble's film works are marked by layers of residue, shifting abstract surfaces, chemical traces, scratches and blotches, as though a virus has infected the image, distorting its tone and colour, imbuing it with unusual textures and a strange aura.
Film loops would be subjected to chemical and other treatments, the effect was witnessed in real time until the loops fell apart in the projector.
With this sonic panorama the film is a paradoxically claustrophobic journey, barbiturate and itchy, undertaken in vague detachment.

 MovieMartyr.com - Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son
Tom, Tom, the Piper’s Son, Ken Jacobs’ seminal reexamination of a 1905 short film of the same title, transforms what was essentially an extended chase scene featuring a comic crowd of villagers into a meditation on the way we view films and on the medium itself.
Certainly, the film reinforces the much-proffered notion that one of the goals of avant-garde cinema is to train the viewer to see cinema, and the world itself, through different eyes.
The grain of the film stock is wild and unpredictable, and examining its swirl frame by flashing frame in extreme close-up gives an appreciation of the process by which cinematic motion is created.

By 1905, most films consisted of multiple shots, but their narratives were still conceived on an essentially "theatrical" model, in that they consisted of a series of self-contained "acts".

1905 as innovative and influential (the so-called British Pioneers), and to regard British films produced after this date as `retarded' in relation to their international counterparts (particularly in relation to films emanating from the USA).
Concomitant with this perspective has been a lack of (contemporary) research on this period of British film history.
The aims of this paper are thus not only to begin to redress this historical deficiency, but also to (re)address the view that British films produced in this period are formally `retarded'.
