  The Film Tribune - Khartoum (1966)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
However, a film adaptation of textbook history is not exempt from rules which determine the success, or the failure, of a motion picture; this explains why it may be considered, to a certain extent, appropriate to modify historical events in a film if such tampering of records can help the story.
Unfortunately, a film which aspires to historical accuracy, and even comprehensiveness, cannot afford to overlook details which may appear trivial but which in fact are indispensable to the understanding of politics in Victorian England.
The film treats the natives respectfully, and even the Mahdi, for a while, might even appear to be sympathetic until very close to the end, when his ruthlessness is ascertained through gruesome actions.

 FILM/MEDIA EVENT
Film studies existed only sporadically in large universities, normally in the department of English Literature or Modern Languages, where film was discussed as literature, or in the department of Religion, Anthropology, or Sociology, where film was used as visual documentation, or, occasionally as an aspect of journalism.
Thirdly, one of my youthful aspirations were to become a scene designer; so, I was quick in my understanding of the nature of the mise-en-scene in film, the notion that aside from the dialogues on the sound track, the figures on the screen and their setting construct a film narrative.
In my conviction that film is first and foremost a visual art (as sitting in the movies with eyes closed should attest), I also required an introductory art history as a prerequisite so that the students came with some basics of visual analysis.

The 105-minute Batman opened at The Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas on Saturday, July 30, 1966 (between the first and second seasons of the TV series.
Like the television series, the movie featured saturated colours, campy dialogue and special effects, and over-exaggeration in acting performances, effectively being a tongue-in-cheek parody.

 Contemporary Review: Preserving Ireland's film heritage - Irish Film Archive   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A key function of the Irish Film Archive is to lend Irish films free of charge to non-competitive film festivals throughout the world to cater for the international demand for and interest in Irish film.
As well as supplying copies of Irish film in response to requests from both national and international film festivals organisers, the Irish Film Archive is a useful resource for students, researchers and well established filmmakers alike, coming from countries as diverse as Poland and the United States.
Film searches are not only useful for unearthing heritage which can then be preserved in a publicly accessible place, they also allow potentially dangerous self-destructive nitrate film to be handled in a safe environment.

 The 1966 D'Oyly Carte Mikado Film
That so little of the D'Oyly Carte output was preserved on film is both sad and curious — sad, in that their unique stagings are now lost forever, except in people's memories; and curious, in that it might have seemed an ideal way for the Company to increase its visibility, particularly among younger audiences.
The film is a foreshadowing of the decline of the company, and, with all the close-ups, points up how "precious" Reed could be.
These were all essentially filmed stage performances (La Bohème was originally filmed for European television), and WB seemed to be promoting them as an unofficial "series" of live performances of classics captured on film.

The film is long and boring, consisting of shots of red paint being poured on "a wide variety of objects," the last of which is a hotplate.
Individual frames of the film are imprinted on the retina of the eye in a rhythm, sequence, and intensity that corresponds to Alpha-Wave frequencies of the brain.
Although the film may appear conventional on a technical level, conceptually this is not the case given that the work is based on situations where the sense of perception processes images in various time lengths according to the characteristics viewed.

The film's title refers to Virginia Woolf (1882-1941), an influential British feminist writer who pioneered the 'stream of consciousness' literary style while examining the psychological and emotional motives of her characters.
The fl-and-white film, masterfully directed by Mike Nichols (in his directorial screen debut), captured probably the greatest performance ever of Elizabeth Taylor's career (she won her second Academy Award as well as Best Actress praises from the New York Film Critics, the Nat'l Board of Review and the British Film Academy).
The film opens under a moonlit sky in the middle of the night on a small New England college campus (in the town of New Carthage - an allegorical name).

 Farenheit 451 / film review / 1966 / Francois Truffaut
Unfortunately, the film is very badly let down by some pretty major technical and casting problems.
As a result, this is probably Truffaut’s least successful film, and its failure is due most probably to the language barrier: Truffaut’s inability to master English is well-documented.
The film took four years to realise, involved many re-writes, changes of sponsor, and some serious casting problems.

This 1966 film adaptation, SULT [HUNGER], was the first ever Swedish/Danish/Norwegian film co-production and it is a masterpiece of cooperation, subtlety and respect for its source material.
In another filmed extra, author Paul Auster talks of his love for the film with Hamsun's grand-daughter Regine, who both agree that it is one of the best film adaptations of a novel ever.
The entire film rests on Per Oscarsson's lead performance - he is in practically every shot of the film - and he completely embodies the main character of Hamsun's book (even though he was second choice for the role).

 CINEMA - Film Censorship - 1966 Encyclopaedia of New Zealand
Some titles and film posters were rather lurid, but exhibitors censored their films with discretion so that those who went expectantly to see such films as The White Slave Traffic (“adults only”) came away disappointed.
Exhibitors obtain their films from film distributors who distribute the films of overseas producers, collect rentals, deduct expenses and charges, and remit the balance to the producing organisations.
There is no customs duty on the importation of films, but the film distributors pay a film-hire tax – 10 per cent of their net receipts for British films and 25 per cent for foreign films, and exhibitors pay an amusement tax which is included in the price of admission.

 Masculin Feminin Movie Review at Hollywood Video
When Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin Feminin premiered in 1966, the film's jarring free-form "narrative," blatant political agenda, and sexual frankness bewildered even the director's staunchest admirers.
For devotees of the iconoclastic filmmaker, the film is vintage Godard: heady, subversive, and formally daring in its explicit critique of bourgeois values.
The couple's stop-start romance, which is further complicated by the presence of her two flatmates and his labor activist friend, unfolds in 15 chapters, which Godard introduces with cryptic inter-titles, usually accompanied by the sound of gunfire.

This is a big budget film, a comparative rarity at the time, but not a French franc was wasted.
A major factor in the film’s success in France was the top billing of Bourvil and Louis de Funès, at the time the two most popular comic actors in France.

There are scenes that take "artistic license", but the film is quite accurate in its facts on General Gordon; a military genius who hated war, a deeply religious man who worked to end slavery, and who fell in love with the desolate scorching sands and the people of the Sudan.
This film sparked my imagination and made me want to know more about Gordon's fascinating life and the history that surrounded him, and it is one I could watch repeatedly.

 Kinoeye | New Perspectives on European film
The film, faithfully adapted from Robert Musil's 1906 novel, a study of sadism and masochism among students at an Austro-Hungarian boy's academy, is a parable of fascism and its origins, evoking the Stimmung (atmosphere) and claustrophobic horror of the military system itself.
The film opens on a bleak, rural plain at a railway station in Neudorf in the early 1900s as eight adolescent students arrive to attend military academy there.
The stark fl and white cinematography of Franz Rath attests to all the aforementioned attributes, the monolithic coldness of life itself and the lack of concern and compassion of the characters themselves.
