Monte Walsh - DVD Review

22 November 2010 9:20 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Times they are a.changin and the longer you live the more change you see. Sometimes that can be good, but other times you find that you are a person lost as you can.t adjust to those changes. Monte Walsh (Lee Marvin) and Chet Rollins (Jack Palance) are cowboys who made their livings traveling from job to plentiful job. However, times are changing and those same jobs are now becoming harder to find as the great open spaces are becoming fenced and owned by bankers and lawyers.

Oscar-Nominated Cinematographer William A. Fraker Dies

21 June 2010 6:50 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

William A. Fraker was a leading cinematographer in films from the late 1960s, photographing such films as Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby and the 1977’s Exorcist II: The Heretic. He earned six Academy Award nominations during his career for his work on Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977), the fantasy classic Heaven Can Wait (1978) starring Warren Beatty, Steven Spielberg’s 1941 (1979), WarGames (1983), and Murphy’s Romance (1985).

Fraker was born in Los Angeles on September 29, 1923 and served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific during World War II. He studied at the USC School of Cinema and worked as a photographer’s assistant. He began working as a camera operator for television in the early 1960s. He served as a cinematographer for the obscure television production The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre (a.k.a. The Haunted) (1964) for director Joseph Stefano, and for Leslie Steven’s off-beat, Esperanto-language horror film Incubus (1965) starring William Shatner. »

Cinematographer whose innovative work brought him five Oscar nominations

Fraker could not be praised or blamed for the direction, acting or script, but the look of a film was, on the whole, his responsibility. Although he saw himself as part of a team who tried to fulfil the director's vision, Fraker began to push the boundaries of cinematography in commercial cinema by using faster and wider lenses, restricting lighting sources and employing techniques such as flashing and deliberate overexposure.

According to Fraker: "The director is the captain of the ship, the cinematographer is the executive officer. You have to really learn who you're working with and what they think. It's like a marriage. As a cinematographer, you can immediately tell a terrific director if they »
