About this product
- DescriptionBrooklyn, New York, is kwn for its distinctive vernacular, its communal feel on the fringes of a booming city, and its famous bridge, a gateway to the golden opportunities of Manhattan. And Coney Island has garnered its own fame independent of Brooklyn, its parent locale. This work is a collection of essays on the topic of Brooklyn as portrayed in film. It includes a discussion of race relations in films dealing with Brooklyn, the story of Jackie Robinson as shown on film, the changing face of cinematic Brooklyn and some thoughts on a Brooklyn filmgoer's experience. The combination of Brooklyn and baseball in the films of Paul Auster is examined, as well as the typical portrayal of a Brooklyn native in film.
