The Camera Shot and the Gun Sight
Author(s): Moss, Anne Eakin
This article examines the connections between the camera shot and the gun sight in the age of classic Hollywood cinema. Comparing THE LOST PATROL (USA 1934, John Ford) with TRINADTSAT (THIRTEEN, UdSSR 1936, Mikhail Romm), it asks what kind of relationship films from this era strove to establish between the viewer and the gun shot on screen. The ideological and stylistic differences between the films make visible divergent fantasies of agency, community and technology.
