Description:
Screen acting is generally considered in terms of the on-screen performance, which is actually the outcome of collaborative work and ever-changing conventions of the group activity that is filmmaking. New technologies and aesthetic developments, for example, continue to change how actors perform on screen.

These elements are explored in this readable, in-depth investigation of the dynamic role of acting in the creation and evolution of Hollywood. Expert contributors take readers from the inception of film acting in 1895, when spectators thrilled at the sight of vaudeville performers and Wild West stars, through Hollywood's different eras, up to the current tendency to blend human actors with CGI.

Special attention is paid throughout to definitive performances by notable film stars, including Lillian Gish, Ginger Rogers, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Nicholas Cage, Denzel Washington and Andy Serkis.
