 Arthur Edeson - Films as Cinematographer:
Arthur Edeson's style is a perfect example of the approach and merger of two schools and aesthetics of world cinema.
Like Hal Mohr, Arthur Miller, or Charles Rosher, Edeson was one of the master craftsmen of the old American school, whose principal work was on the side of realism, considered by most historians to represent the zenith of Hollywood photography.
One of Edeson's great strengths was his ability to capture the spirit of large-scale scenarios: for Robin Hood, for instance, with a scenario by Wilfred Buckland, through the use of double exposures and glass shots, and, notably for the scenes in the castle's interior, through the use of natural light.

Edeson was barely making a living as a portrait photographer in 1910 when he decided to try his hand at the movies.
When American Eclair was reorganized as the World Film Corporation, Edeson stayed on to become chief cinematographer for the star Clara Kimball Young, and when she left for California in 1917, Edeson followed.
In 1920, Douglas Fairbanks saw 'For the Soul of Rafael', one of Edeson's films for Young, and signed the cinematographer for three of his biggest pictures: 'The Three Musketeers', 'Robin Hood' and 'The Thief of Bagdad'.

 Wide Film Cinematography - Fox Grandeur 70mm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-01)
By ARTHUR EDESON, A.S.C. F ANYONE had, a few months ago, told me that I would not only be photographing a big picture on wide film, but also rabidly enthusiastic over its artistic possibilities, I would have thought him crazy.
For I had the typical, conservative cameraman's attitude toward wide film: it might be all right as a novelty, but as a practical medium for serious artistic work it was impossible.
And when these advantages, and those which the wide film soundtrack offers the sound-engineers, are combined with a perfected system of color cinematography, cinematographers and directors will indeed have a medium which is worthy of their best artistic and technical efforts.
