Sherlock Holmes and his Adventures on American Radio Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

It’s been over a hundred and twenty-five years since the adventures of Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print and captivated a generation of readers. Subsequent generations have enjoyed, adapted and expanded on his adventures leading him to become perhaps the most enduring character in fiction. That long run has been helped by his adventures in a variety of media, most notably film and television. But what about radio? Holmes has had a long career in radio on both sides of the Atlantic, indeed the radio adventures of Sherlock Holmes are almost as old as radio itself. He debuted on air in 1922 and just a few years later Holmes and Watson were featuring in a regular weekly series on NBC in the USA. That series ended in 1936 but when Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce made the first of their career-defining fourteen films as Holmes and Watson there was a certain inevitability about Holmes’ return to the American airwaves. The subsequent series ran for seven years and almost two hundred and twenty half hour radio shows. When Rathbone quit the role—in both radio and film – the show limped on for a few years. This book tells the story of those shows.

Italian Giallo in Film and Television Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Since the release in 1929 of a popular book series with bright yellow covers, the Italian word giallo (yellow) has come to define a whole spectrum of mystery and detective fiction and films. Although most English speakers associate the term giallo with the violent and erotic thrillers popular in the 1960s and 1970s from directors like Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and others, the term encompasses a wide range of Italian media such as mysteries, thrillers and detective stories--even comedies and political pamphlets. As films like Blood and Black Lace (1964) and Deep Red (1975) have received international acclaim, giallo is a fluid and dynamic genre that has evolved throughout the decades. This book examines the many facets of the giallo genre --narrative, style, themes, and influences. It explores Italian films, made-for-TV films and miniseries from the dawn of sound cinema to the present, discussing their impact on society, culture and mores.

The Third Rainbow Girl Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

*** A NEW YORK TIMES "100 Notable Books of 2020" *** A stunning, complex narrative about the fractured legacy of a decades-old double murder in rural West Virginia—and the writer determined to put the pieces back together. In the early evening of June 25, 1980 in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, two middle-class outsiders named Vicki Durian, 26, and Nancy Santomero, 19, were murdered in an isolated clearing. They were hitchhiking to a festival known as the Rainbow Gathering but never arrived. For thirteen years, no one was prosecuted for the “Rainbow Murders” though deep suspicion was cast on a succession of local residents in the community, depicted as poor, dangerous, and backward. In 1993, a local farmer was convicted, only to be released when a known serial killer and diagnosed schizophrenic named Joseph Paul Franklin claimed responsibility. As time passed, the truth seemed to slip away, and the investigation itself inflicted its own traumas—-turning neighbor against neighbor and confirming the fears of violence outsiders have done to this region for centuries. In The Third Rainbow Girl, Emma Copley Eisenberg uses the Rainbow Murders case as a starting point for a thought-provoking tale of an Appalachian community bound by the false stories that have been told about. Weaving in experiences from her own years spent living in Pocahontas County, she follows the threads of this crime through the complex history of Appalachia, revealing how this mysterious murder has loomed over all those affected for generations, shaping their fears, fates, and desires. Beautifully written and brutally honest, The Third Rainbow Girl presents a searing and wide-ranging portrait of America—divided by gender and class, and haunted by its own violence.
