This imaginative analysis of widescreen cinema and its impact upon movie genres regards how widescreen sharply changed the aesthetics of film after replacing the earlier square screen. The book, spanning the dawn of film to the publication date, illustrates an early use of an artificial widescreen to depict isolation and loneliness when director D. W. Griffith blacks out the top and bottom of a square screen to convert it into widescreen for a single scene in 1919. Accounts of early widescreen, including John Wayne's debut in a 1930 western, feature explanations of how camera placement subtly affects the viewing experience.
