The Quiet Man
13,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

An exemplary entry in the filmography of master director John Ford, The Quiet Man contains all the aspects that mark Ford’s work: a poetic, deeply felt sentiment for an unregainable past, for tradition and ceremony, for the country of Ireland and its emigrant bloodlines, for the camaraderie within community, and for the profound yet mutable bond of the marital union. Within a seven-decade career filled with high points, The Quiet Man represents one of Ford's highest, and from his richest period. Set in the 1920s, The Quiet Man stars John Wayne as Sean Thornton, an Irish-born American who has travelled to his birthplace of Innisfree to lay claim to his family farm. Although warmly embraced by the denizens of the village, Thornton’s outsider status is thrown into relief when the abrasive landowner Squire Will Danahan (Victor McLaglen) objects both to the turnover of the land, and to the handing over of his sister Mary Kate’s (Maureen O’Hara) dowry to the man whose community stature now threatens to show up his own. What follows is a confrontation with custom and with the personal past, all before an unforgettable extended brawl sprawling the entire very countryside whereupon nothing less hinges than the peace of Innisfree itself. Winton Hoch’s astonishing Technicolor cinematography (for which he won an Academy Award) has cemented the images of The Quiet Man within the minds and hearts of viewers across the decades. This is a film that, with its epic, yet intimate, canvas and its near-Shakespearean sense of character only grows in power over time and the more times it is seen. It is an ideal entry-point into Ford’s massive body of work, and a summation of his art; as a result, Ford was awarded the 1952 Oscar for Best Director. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Quiet Man on Blu-ray in the UK for the first time.

On Nineteen Eighty-Four

From the author of the definitive biography of George Orwell, a captivating account of the origin and enduring power of his landmark dystopian novel Since its publication nearly 70 years ago, George Orwell's 1984 has been regarded as one of the most influential novels of the modern age. Politicians have testified to its influence on their intellectual identities, rock musicians have made records about it, TV viewers watch a reality show named for it, and a White House spokesperson tells of "alternative facts." The world we live in is often described as an Orwellian one, awash in inescapable surveillance and invasions of privacy. On 1984 dives deep into Orwell's life to chart his earlier writings and key moments in his youth, such as his years at a boarding school, whose strict and charismatic headmaster shaped the idea of Big Brother. Taylor tells the story of the writing of the book, taking readers to the Scottish island of Jura, where Orwell, newly famous thanks to Animal Farm but coping with personal tragedy and rapidly declining health, struggled to finish 1984. Published during the cold war-a term Orwell coined-Taylor elucidates the environmental influences on the book. Then he examines 1984's post-publication life, including its role as a tool to understand our language, politics, and government.In a current climate where truth, surveillance, censorship, and critical thinking are contentious, Orwell's work is necessary. Written with resonant and reflective analysis, On 1984 is both brilliant and remarkably timely

The main purpose of the study was to determine the exposure habit of farmers to radio and television and to determine the effectiveness of radio and television in the dissemination of agricultural information as perceived by farmers. Data were collected from randomly selected 100 radio listeners and 100 television viewers through personal interviewing during November 2007 to June 2008. In case of radio, among seventeen selected radio broadcasted national and regional farm programs, farmers were more or less exposed to only eight programs. Among the eight programs shamol Sylhet (regional) ranked first followed by desh- amar- mati- amar (national program), ajker chasabad (regional program) and so on. From overall consideration most of the respondents (85%) had low to medium exposure to radio broadcasted farm program. Among the entire farm programs broadcasted through radio, farmers preferred to know the information related to market value of agricultural product followed by questioning- answering and so on. In case of television among the selected five farm television program broadcasted through five satellite channels (BTV World, Channel-I, Banglavision, Rtv and ATN Bangla).
