One thing the Germans were not happy in the treaty of Versailles is the War Guilt Clause, take blame for the war. Because of this they had to the reparation to the big three. The German government didn’t have the money to pay for the reparation as the country just lost a war and the factory are destroy and the environment is in a poor state. So then the USA banks lend Germany government loans. Its was all going well as Germany was getting in a better state and they are paying their reparation until 1929.
The Reichstag Fire led to the Enabling Act because Hitler had managed to convince Hindenburg that it was a ‘communists uprising’. This manages Hitler to prove to Germany that communists were bad people and he would have get more votes, in the next elections. However, I also disagree with the statement ‘the Reichstag Fire more important than the Enabling Act in allowing Hitler to consolidate power’ because of other several reasons. Firstly, the Enabling Act made a Hitler a virtual dictator. Nobody could stop him, even Hindenburg.
The Suez crisis caused great controversy within Britain and also did a lot to threaten Britain’s world relations, especially with the USA. The Crisis began as a result of Egypt’s Colonel Nasser failing to get funding from the USA for his high dam project which he believed would help Egypt to become a more powerful wealthy nation and bring its industry in line with that of other global powers. Nasser then turned to the Suez Canal for a source of national income. The canal was vital to Britain and France to allow for trade with many eastern countries. Britain had recently removed its troop from the area around the canal, so Nasser decided to nationalise the canal and impose a toll which he could use to fund the dam.
Contrary to his unwavering independence in technique and style Spike Lee has taken on the challenge of film remake. Remaking a movie is always tricky, particularly when the original has an already strong following. The 2013 remake of the Past Chan-wook’s classic, Old Boy had Lee’s critics wondering why he engaged in such a dark film. When Chan-wook’s Old Boy hit theatres in 2003, it was praised for its unique structure, it’s magnificent and action packed fight scenes, and it’s visual flair, making Spike Lee a very bold choice to adapt the film for an American audience. It’s not a shot for shot remake of the original or the 2003 version, but like Chan-wook’s version, it’s graphic so don’t watch this on a fall stomach.

Both factors are incredible to fathom. What first caught my attention was the climatic finale. It goes without saying that it influences Eisenstein and other Soviet film directors’ interest in propaganda and montage, but I could see the finale’s parallel editing, and cross-cutting between two or more action packed scenes as the forefather of every action film until this day. Return of the Jedi cuts between Luke battling Darth, Han, Leia, and the Ewoks on Endor, and Lando Calrissian versus the Death Star. The tension and action in one scene was reflected in the other two.
The OWI would manipulate the scripts and outcomes of many films for the benefits of the country as a whole. These books were historical contexts on films during the time of war. The books found were historical because they went over the history of World War II during this time, and they were also able to glimpse at the history of film. Both books made it obvious to their readers that the government played a major role in cinema during this time. Pressure from the war was high, and any way for the government to interlude propaganda to the public in order to boost morale was
2000.). I think James Stewart wanted to help by fighting the war rather than be a radio broadcaster because, he wanted to be part that was helping to win this war. When he returned to Hollywood he didn’t renew his contract with MGM, but instead signed with the MCA talent agency (Thomas W. Collins, Jr. “Stewart, James” http://www.anb.org/articles/18/18-03481.html; American National Biography Online Feb. 2000.) I think he did this because, he wanted to get bigger roles in movies and not get small roles that know one noticed him.
“My path leads to the creation of a fresh perception of the world. I can thus decipher a world that you do not know.” – Dziga Vertov. The Man with the Movie Camera is viewed as a pinnacle reference of documentary film for individuals everywhere and is an example of where editing is extensively used to create meaning. The 1928 piece documents a day within a Soviet City and has become renowned as a political masterpiece that has influenced many filmmakers with its range of editing techniques and alternative stance in cinema. In the 1920s structured order meant filmmakers followed an unwritten set of rules that determined plots, protagonists and the genre of successful films.
This hybrid culture is the ideal marriage of unseen and unfamiliar talent emerging from the deep unknown and entering the homes of everyday society. Underground pop culture allows many dissimilar and previously unnoticed artistic forms to become recognized and embraced by people all over the world. While the initial mergence of these two sub-cultures is untraceable, many of its roots lead back to infamous artist Andy Warhol. The artist, most recognized for his famous works of ‘pop art’ in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, brought many forms of underground culture along with him during his rise to the mainstream. Warhol’s contributions to film, music, and art revolutionized the underground world and were soon exposed to mainstream pop culture, thus making these categories vital in the amalgamation of underground and pop culture.
