Spotlight on Jack Cardiff

An examination of the great advances in cinematography achieved by Jack Cardiff.

I must confess I had not known the name of Jack Cardiff before seeing "Black Narcissus". But his career spanned the development of cinema, from silent film, through early experiments in Technicolor to filmmaking in the 21st century. He was best known for his influential color cinematography for directors such as Powell and Pressburger (with "Black Narcissus"), to Huston and Hitchcock. In 2000 he was awarded an OBE and in 2001 he was awarded an Honorary Oscar for his contribution to the cinema, which was long overdue.

Today, the definitive look at Cardiff's work is the 2010 documentary "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff", but if someone is interested in his career and wants to cram in only 30 minutes, "Painting With Light" is nothing to sneeze at. Plenty of anecdotes from Cardiff himself, as well as notable folks like Martin Scorsese.
