1. Joubé Poreau, Martine. Biographie d'un artiste dramatique oublié : romuald Joubé (1876-1949) : Biography of a forgotten artist : Romuald Joubé, 1876-1949.

Degree: Docteur es, Langues et Littératures Françaises, 2014, Pau

Ce projet a vu le jour afin de tirer de l'oubli un artiste dramatique nommé Romuald Joubé, né en 1876 et décédé en 1949. Cet homme était mon ancêtre, c'est l'oubli familial et collectif dont il a été victime qui a suscité la réalisation de ce travail. Il a eu la particularité de devenir un acteur reconnu au théâtre et au cinéma muet, en traversant deux guerres mondiales. Cette biographie s'attache à faire découvrir l'évolution du jeune comédien et celle du milieu théâtral et cinématographique de la première moitié du XXe siècle. Son parcours le mène de Saint-Gaudens à Paris, de l'Odéon à la Comédie-Française, des tournées européennes aux tournées internationales où il côtoie les grands noms du théâtre et du cinéma tels qu'André Antoine, Sarah Bernhardt, Abel Gance. Devenu une vedette il ne renie jamais sa région pyrénéenne où il crée un théâtre de verdure et défend ardemment le théâtre de plein air jusqu'à la fin de sa vie. Son éclectisme lui permet d'interpréter différents répertoires. Aussi remet-il en cause certaines idées reçues sur l'histoire du monde théâtral, par exemple le clivage entre Théâtre commercial et Théâtre littéraire. Acteur du cinéma muet, il est aussi intéressé par la radiophonie en 1936 et plus tard il fera une expérience au cinéma parlant avec Sacha Guitry. Homme entre tradition et modernité, Joubé révèle les ambiguïtés du monde artistique en temps de guerre. Cet homme aux multiples dons, à la fois acteur, dessinateur, peintre, spécialiste de la langue gasconne, se battra jusqu'à sa mort pour défendre l'art de qualité pour tous, sans jamais oublier sa famille et ses racines.

This project has been conceived to get out of oblivion Romuald Joubé (1876-1949). He was a professional dramatic artist and an ancestor of mine. Because of this familial and collective forgetting of the great works of Joubé, the main goal of this thesis is to reveal his biography. He became a famous and talented theatre and silent movie actor by crossing two world wars.This biography presents the evolution of Joubé as a young stage actor as well as the evolution of theatre and cinema during the first part of the twentieth century. From Saint-Gaudens (France) to Paris, and from Odéon to the Comédie-Française, Joubé met some of the great actors such as André Antoine, Sarah Bernhardt or Abel Gance. Even if he became famous at Paris, he did not forget his native region: Southwest of France and the Pyrénées. He created an open-air theater in this region. Until the end of his life, he promoted the open-air theatre. Joubé could play many different roles. He was also a silent film actor. Then in 1936, he got interested in radio. He accepted then sound films with Sacha Guitry. Tradition and modernity characterize this major and forgotten actor of the twentieth century. The biography of Joubé also brings us into the lives of artists of this period. Finally, Joubé, as an actor but also as a painter, a draughtsman and a defender of Gascon language. He will fight up to his dead to defend the quality art for all, without over…

2. Cossar, John Harper. Snakes and Funerals: Aesthetics and American Widescreen Films.

Degree: PhD, Communication, 2007, Georgia State University

The study of widescreen cinema historically has been under analyzed with regard to aesthetics. This project examines the visual poetics of the wide frame from the silent films of Griffith and Gance to the CinemaScope grandeur of Preminger and Tashlin. Additionally, the roles of auteur and genre are explored as well as the new media possibilities such as letterboxing online content. If cinema’s history can be compared to painting, then prior to 1953, cinema existed as a portrait-only operation with a premium placed on vertical compositions. This is not to say that landscape shots were not possible or that lateral mise-en-scene did not exist. Cinematic texts, with very few exceptions, were composed in only one shape: the almost square Academy Ratio. Before 1953, cinema’s shape is that of portraiture; after 1953 cinema’s shape is landscape. Widescreen filmmaking is not simply an alternative to previous visual representation in cinema because no equivalent exists. Widescreen is quite simply a break from previous stylistic norms because the shape of the frame itself has been drastically reconfigured. With the proliferation of HDTV and widescreen computer monitors, certain aspect ratios that were once regarded as specifically “cinematic” are now commonplace both in the home and in the workplace. This project outlines a project that traces the innovations and aesthetic developments of widescreen aspect ratios from the silent era of D.W Griffith, Buster Keaton and Abel Gance all the way through to current widescreen digital manifestations of web-based media and digital “blanks” such as those created by Pixar. Other chapters include close textual analyses of “experimental” widescreen films of 1930, the development of “norms” for widescreen filmmaking in the early CinemaScope era of the 1950s and examinations of the experimental multi-screen mosaics of 1968 and beyond. Advisors/Committee Members: Greg M. Smith - Chair, Matthew Bernstein, Kathy Fuller-Seeley, Jack Boozer, Angelo Restivo.
