Always Learning: Visual Comedy vs. Crappy Improv

 

What Is Real Comedy

“Every Frame a Painting” has some insightful ideas into the decline of American comedy movies.

First, the greats of American cinema were in the Silent Era.  Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton and the great Charlie Chaplin.  When asked about what he needed for a comedy, Chaplin one time replied, “Me, a girl and a cop.”  Meaning – if his Tramp character was pursuing the girl, then the cop was pursuing him.  Visual Comedy results.

John Ford – Great American Filmmaker

John Ford (February 1, 1894 – August 31, 1973) was an American film director. He is renowned both for Westerns such as Stagecoach (1939), The Searchers (1956), and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), as well as adaptations of classic 20th-century American novels such as the film The Grapes of Wrath (1940). His four Academy Awards for Best Director (in 1935, 1940, 1941, and 1952) remain a record. One of the films for which he won the award, How Green Was My Valley, also won Best Picture.

In a career that spanned more than 50 years, Ford directed more than 140 films (although most of his silent films are now lost) and he is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential film-makers of his generation.[2] Ford’s work was held in high regard by his colleagues, with Orson Welles and Ingmar Bergman among those who have named him one of the greatest directors of all time.

Ford made frequent use of location shooting and long shots, in which his characters were framed against a vast, harsh and rugged natural terrain.
