Although Chaplin reached the height of his fame during the silent era, only a few commentators have sought to specifically analyze his silent shorts and films apart from his sound era features. Neibaur 2008 and Neibaur 2012 represent important considerations of Chaplin’s earliest years in the film industry, examining his work at the Keystone Studios and Essanay Studios respectively. In addition to offering commentaries on specific films, Neibaur’s studies consider some thorny historical questions regarding Chaplin’s work at each studio and proposes resolutions to lasting questions in the Chaplin scholarship, such as which of Chaplin’s Keystone shorts marked his directorial debut, based on his archival findings. Brownlow 2005 also delves into archival questions regarding Chaplin’s silent era work, relating the story behind his groundbreaking discovery of the behind-the-scenes footage that became the basis for the Unknown Chaplin documentary series and offering details of footage not included in that series. (See Brownlow and Gil 2005 , cited under Documentary Sources for information on the companion series.) Two important film restorations are also cited here. Chaplin 2010 marks one of the most substantial efforts to collect and restore high-quality prints of the shorts that Chaplin made at Keystone, which have long been out of copyright and circulated in degraded forms. The resulting DVD arguably brings us closer than any previous effort to witnessing the actual appearance of the shorts as audiences at the time would have seen them. In a similar vein, Chaplin 2012 includes a highly important recreation of the 1925 silent version of The Gold Rush , which was effectively lost after Chaplin recut the film for its 1942 rerelease. With this release, it is possible again to view the film for which Chaplin said he hoped to be remembered as it was originally shown to audiences.

The most eminent feature of Arnheim’s theory of film is the author’s sceptical view of sound film (“the introduction of the sound film smashed many of the forms that the film artists were using in favour of the intrinsic demand for the greatest possible ‘naturalness’”; 1957, p. 154). Instead of discussing dimensions of this ‘anachronism’, the present paper focuses on an elementof Arnheim’s theory that is still relevant: the perception of moving images. Arnheim stressed that the movement of objects (not least: the moving human body) – besides being expressive – is essential for the viewer’s impression of three-dimensional space. As for the movement of the camera, Arnheim explained why it tends to produce disorientation and dizziness (which may sometimes be an intended effect). These insights contradict the still widespread mystification of camera movements as the core of the movie experience (cf. Gibson, 1982; Bordwell, 2001).

The first Jewish population in the region to be later known as Germany came with the Romans to the city now known as Cologne. A "Golden Age" in the first millennium saw the emergence of the Ashkenazi Jews , while the persecution and expulsion that followed the Crusades led to the creation of Yiddish and an overall shift eastwards. A change of status in the late Renaissance Era, combined with the Jewish Enlightenment, the Haskalah , meant that by the 1920s Germany had one of the most integrated Jewish populations in Europe, contributing prominently to German culture and society.

Summary : Primarily correspondence and writings documenting Arnheim's teaching career and his professional interest in art and psychology. Writings include diaries, twenty-five volumes, including travel diaries, and two volumes in German while an educator in Berlin and during his travels to Rome and England (1919-1922 and 1934-1938). REEL 3767: Correspondence, 1959-1982, with German publishers and editors, 1960-1979; Dumont Buchverlag, 1963-1980, Carl Hanser Varlag, 1974-1981, Helmut Diederich, 1974-1981, Franz Rudolf Knubel, 1971-1981, Werner Korbs, 1976-1982, Jurgen Weber, 1972-1981, and others. UNMICROFILMED: Biographical material; bibliography of writings; legal papers; files of correspondence, some arranged chronologically, but most alphabetically by subject; diaries, 1919-1987; lecture notes; and writings, including manuscripts, articles, book reviews, published articles. Manuscripts include: "Art & Visual Perception," "Art of Seeing," "Autobiography of a Work of Art: Picasso's Guernica," "Depth Effect of 2D Figures," "Disorder & Entropy, Order and Art," "Dynamics of Architectural Form," "New Essays on the Psychology of Art," "Photographing Michelangelo," and a work of fiction "The World Upside Down" (Verkehrte Welt). Also included are printed material (book notices, book reviews, interviews, clippings) and audio tapes (untranscribed) of lectures and interviews. Among the subject/correspondence file titles are: American Society for Aesthetics, Architects, Art Historians/Critics, Dance, Film, Harvard University, Japan/Fulbright Trip, University of Michigan, Museum of Modern Art, Music, New School of Social Research, Psychiatrists, and Television. Correspondents include Josef Albers, Gordon Allport, Joseph Campbell, Gyorgy Kepes, Hans Richter, Alice Sheldon, and . Skinner.
