The text emphasizes aesthetics in post war American film and is more precisely a study of directors, which started their career within live television and made a transition to cinema.

The influence of their television background on their films is central to the text. Contributing factors in this context are changes in the overall technology within TV, changes from live productions to the use of film, and later to the use of video tape. Television's transitional nature through technical changes lead to changes in methods which ultimately also lead to changes in style. (Less)
