I've been using Bohn & Stromgren's LIGHT AND SHADOWS (Mayfield, 1987,
3rd ed.) in my course "History and Appreciation of the Motion
Picture."  Unfortunately, Mayfield seems not to project a 4th ed., so
I've been looking for a replacement.  I've looked at Cook's A HISTORY
OF NARRATIVE FILM (Norton, 1990, 2nd ed.) and at Thompson &
Bordwell's FILM HISTORY: AN INTRODUCTION (McGraw-Hill, 1994, 1st
ed.).  Does anyone have a recommendation beyond the aforementioned?
Other comments?  As is perhaps obvious, I would like to maintain a
historical approach.  My text choice is due April 15th.   -- Ralph
