The Dynamic Frame: Camera Movement in Classical Hollywood


The introduction outlines the book's approach, grounded in context-specific interpretation. A comparison of two shots in Phantom Lady (1944) and Mrs. Miniver (1942) shows that filmmakers could deploy the same shared strategy to very different effects. The remainder of the chapter uses Sunset Boulevard (1950) to illustrates five types of movement: pans, tilts, dollies, cranes, and zooms. This page includes links for all of the chapter's illustrated clips. For a clip that is mentioned in the chapter, but not illustrated, see the "Additional Clips" page.
