Anthony Mann (Wesleyan Film)
by Jeanine Basinger

After an apprenticeship making a string of remarkable B-pictures, Anthony Mann achieved his greatest success when he crossed over to the Western genre. Despite the epic settings of these films, Mann's roots as a noir stylist would prove central in his approach to landscape, which he filmed as psychological extensions for his characters complex emotional turmoil. Mann cherished the American landscape, and as such, his films feature pictorial Technicolor photography of not just barren deserts, but snowy mountains, majestic rivers, and lush forests, all of which were used to perfection and led to Mann becoming a defining maverick in exploring the possibilities of the Cinemascope frame. Emotional and physical violence were Mann's trade, and his films frequently adopted the classical themes of revenge, tragedy, persecution, and the patriarchal structure/crumbling of the family. Combined with his modern approach to storytelling, Mann's westerns have been described as meta-physical and/or Freudian. Together with longtime actor/collaborator James Stewart, and prolific screenwriter Philip Yordan, Mann would go on to make what are what are widely regarded as some of the purest examples of classic cinema to ever come out of Hollywood's golden-age. - Adam Lemke
