William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Jack Kerouac were three of the most significant figures of the Beat Generation, whose writings have been adapted and appropriated for graphic novels, feature-length films, and other media. Adapting the Beat Poets looks at film versions of their writings—including Naked Lunch, Howl, and On the Road—and examines how these interpretations are linked to each other and how beat literature, which historically and artistically stakes itself on authenticity, can be significantly altered by such adaptations.

One of America’s most beloved comic duos, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy have entertained generations of viewers with their unique, heartwarming brand of slapstick comedy. The pair’s teamwork and friendship set their films apart, softening both pratfalls and hardships, and earning them a cherished place in cinema history. From their first joint on-screen appearance in 1921’s The Lucky Dog through their work at the Hal Roach studios, their comic signature remained unique. But what made the films of Laurel and Hardy so enduring? In Laurel and Hardy’s Comic Catastrophes: Laughter and Darkness in the Features and Short Films, Michael Bliss illustrates why these films continue to make audiences laugh. Combining an appreciation for the pleasure that these films elicit with a critical examination of what made them work, Bliss first investigates the milieu in which the pair’s comedy takes place. The author then explores Stan and Ollie’s friendship and their troubled—and troubling—relationships with women. The book also features a detailed discussion of Stan Laurel’s approach to gag structure, while the remainder of the book focuses on many of the pair’s silent and sound films, such as Duck Soup, Pack Up Your Troubles, Chickens Come Home, and The Music Box. By delving into the pair’s films—including several neglected short films—in greater detail than any previous work, this volume provides readers with a fundamental understanding of Stan and Ollie’s universal appeal. Featuring an extensive filmography, Laurel and Hardy’s Comic Catastrophes will engage a wide audience, from film scholars to fans of humor everywhere.

This book explores how the Hollywood studios used sophisticated strategies of propaganda to ideologically unite the country during WWII. Through such films as Casablanca, They Were Expendable, and others, the studios appealed to the public’s sense of nationalism, demonized the enemy, and stressed that wartime sacrifices would result in triumph.

This is the first volume specifically devoted to non-fiction propaganda film distributed in France during the “Dark Years” of the German Occupation. This book shows how the Nazis pursued an aggressive series of measures designed to monopolize the French market and foster agitation against Americans, Jews, Communists, and others. The author provides a concise overview of Vichy and German film policies and then illustrates how ideological priorities and political negotiations played out in the content of both topical documentaries and weekly newsreels.

Jack Kerouacs epochemachender Roman «On the Road» (deutsch: «Unterwegs») über eine Schar junger Menschen, die auf der Suche nach Wahrheit, der Liebe und dem glückseligen Leben quer durch die USA reisen, hat weltweit Generationen junger Leute inspiriert. Er gehört zu den seltenen Büchern des 20. Jahrhunderts, die nicht nur einen völlig neuen Ton anschlugen, sondern vom Geist einer neuen Zeit kündeten: Nahezu im Alleingang schuf «On the Road» mit der Beat-Generation eine der ersten großen amerikanischen Jugendbewegungen und inspirierte deren geistige Nachkommen, die Hippies. Kerouac tippte das Manuskript in drei schlaflosen Wochen mit Hilfe von viel Kaffee und Benzedrin auf eine vierzig Meter lange Papierrolle. Beim Verlag wurde es später stark bearbeitet, gekürzt und anonymisiert. Die hier zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch vorliegende Urfassung ist ein einziger, von Jazz und Marihuana inspirierter Energiestoß. Die Sprachmusik darin ist roher als in der Druckfassung, der Sex expliziter, die Figuren (u. a. Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs und der heimliche Held des Romans, der geniale Autodieb und Lebenskünstler Neal Cassidy) erscheinen mit Klarnamen. Übertragen wurde die Urfassung von Ulrich Blumenbach, der seit seiner Übersetzung von David Foster Wallace’ Roman «Unendlicher Spa߻ zu den wohl renommiertesten deutschen Literaturübersetzern gehört. The beat goes on, und der wilde Rausch, den er erzeugt, verfehlt auch nach 50 Jahren nicht seine Wirkung. Dieses Buch war und ist ein «literarisches Ereignis» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
