Check out the cinematography!


Now that the DVD is finally out (in the U.S.) check out Arthur Miller's deep-focus black-and-white cinematography. With this latest release the visuals really "pop", offering an almost 3-D effect. This is one amazing visual achievement for 1950!

Great screen look to THE GUNFIGHTER. I saw it tonight for the first time in perhaps a decade and what had stayed in my mind the most was the cinematography...and GP asking who was in charge of the donkey - Richard Jackel. I had forgotten all the rest.

i did, and it's very lazy and nothing special.

perhaps you should shoot a few films yourself?

I liked the movie (9/10) but the lighting in the opening and closing scenes is lousy.
