A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

Early Special Effects Case Study: L'Inferno 1911

1911: L'Inferno

L'Inferno (1911) - FULL MOVIE

"The film's depictions of Hell closely followed those in the engravings of Gustave Doré for an edition of The Divine Comedy, which were familiar to an international audience, and employed several special effects."

"L'Inferno is a 1911 Italian silent film, loosely adapted from Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy. L'Inferno took over three years to make, and was the first full-length Italian feature film ever made. (The Story of the Kelly Gang, released in Australia in 1906, is the first full-length film).

L'Inferno was first screened in Naples in the Teatro Mercadante on March 10, 1911. An international success, it took in more than $2 million in the United States alone, where its length gave theater owners an excuse for raising ticket prices.[3] For this reason, L'Inferno was arguably the first true blockbuster in all of cinema."
