An introduction to motion picture study which tries to touch briefly on most of the issues which form the basis for contemporary film theory. Part One is a tongue-in-cheek movie scene entitled "Putting Yourself in My Place," derived from an anecdote in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon. Part Two, called "Five or Six Things About This Movie," analyzes Part One, extracting from it a number of principles or protocols which underlie classic narrative construction in the Hollywood film. These principles (described ironically as "rules") are touched upon in a very general way, leaving the viewer to dispute them, analyze them more fully, and study their application to specific films.
