The Battleship Potemkin is undoubtedly one of the most important films in the history of the cinema. Made in 1925, it is based on one celebrated episode of the failed revolution of 1905, when a mutiny occurred aboard the battleship Potemkin, one of the finest and best-quipped ships in the Russian fleet. The film is probably the best illustration of the techniques perfected by the Russian silent film, and in itself was way ahead of its time. It is notable for its experiments in film editing and montage, its fine photography by Eduard Tissé, and its spectacular scenes, especially the world-renowned "Odessa Steps" sequence.
This edition consists of a translation of Eisenstein's original screenplay, together with an introductory essay by Eisenstein himself, written in 1939, and an historical note by Andrew Sinclair. It is illustrated with 40 stills from the film. 1984 Lorimer Publishing Revised Edition.
