Item description for Dali, Surrealism and Cinema by Elliott H. King...
One of the most widely recognized and controversial artists of the 20th century, Salvador Dalí was also an avant-garde filmmaker, collaborating with such giants as Luis Buñuel, Walt Disney, and Alfred Hitchcock. Influenced by the Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton, and Stanley Kubrick, Dalí used the cinema to bring the "dream subjects" of his paintings to life, providing the groundwork for revolutionary forays into television, video, photography, and holography. From a moviegoing experience that would incorporate all five senses to the tale of a woman's hapless love affair with a wheelbarrow, Dalí's hallucinatory vision never fails to leave its indelible mark, while his writings continue to be relevant to discourses surrounding film and surrealism.

My clocks melted for this book! Nov 1, 2007
For anyone who is fascinated by Dali this book is a MUST READ. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to understand this book because I am not a art historian or scholar, but I am so glad I read it. King does a phenomenal job at presenting Dali and his work in a way that is informative, funny, and fun. I love surrealism and I love film and this book caters to any reader. I had no idea all the work Dali had done with movies. If you're looking for a great read on art and culture try this book.
